Another day, another Timposter! The standard seems to be improving a little.
Oh, come on, Tim. Rich, red meat at this time of night? Here’s what’ll happen. I’ll go to bed, I won’t be able to sleep for trying to think of something pertinent to say, then I’ll get up tomorrow morning to plunk down a few lines in the comments section, only to find four new posts on completely different topics.
Well, no worries. I see that none other than Jeremy Sear has posted a comment (or rather, saved himself the trouble by quoting C.S. Lewis, at length). And Mental Floss is already doing the heavy lifting (Well done, old top; well done, indeed!)
- Definition 1
TIM-itation. (n). A phenomenon in which left-leaning bloggers try to boost their web traffic with imitations (of various quality) of successful right wing blogger Tim Blair.As in: tim-itation, the most insincere form of flattery.
in-TIM-idation. (v) In which leftie bloggers, having exercising ‘timitation’ become disparaging of the comments made by the avalanche of Tim Blair regulars.

Is there a roster for Blair For a Day? When are try outs? Because I’m rather busy from now until about mid Feb. I’ll be glad to pull a double shift if necessary.Posted by Infidel Tiger on 2008 01 08 at 12:15 AM • permalink
And what’s their problem with being themselves?
There’s no better way to get attention from the adults than by crapping on the carpet. Ask any untrained house pet.Posted by The_Real_JeffS on 2008 01 08 at 12:44 AM • permalink
Mayhaps they crap on the carpet because they detest themselves, kae?
I mean, they’re lefties, the same breed that cobbles together paper mache’ heads to demonstrate how their dissent is being crushed. They’re all about emoting, not logic.Posted by The_Real_JeffS on 2008 01 08 at 01:10 AM • permalink
Somehow, I think it will be a long time before anyone tries to be BLL or Jeremy Sear for a day.
To borrow a well-used aphorism, I tried to be Jeremy Sear for a day, but it turns out I couldn’t get my head that far up my own arse. I got stuck on KRudd setting, and the missus and dogs left me instead…:)

#15 I think Steve, that for some people, those who are genuine Christian believers are ‘fundamentalists’.
In other words, what Richard said.

That Timposter is beyond lame. Did he just copy the other dumbass blogger’s post? Is there a leftard alive who hasn’t had the ability to do good satire sucked out of them by the overwhelming self-loathing, bitterness and misanthropy required to be a 21st-century loser socialist?Posted by Crispytoast on 2008 01 08 at 02:19 AM • permalink
It’s kind of nice for Tim to direct some traffic their way. A good deed and all. As of 3:15 WA time, in the last 30 days their top 10 commenters had made 126 comments total. The excitement over the Timitation(© Nora) post has already contributed 25.Posted by spot_the_dog on 2008 01 08 at 02:23 AM • permalink
- Actually I think it would great to be a leftie for a day. Life would be so much simpler. All political problems are so easily solved with big deficit spending and dung beetle programs. Difficult things to deal with like logic and reason can just be cast to the side in favour of irrational emotion.
The individual responsibilities we must face up to day to day can be shuffled straight to the nanny state being handled by mystically enlightened faceless bureaucrats and those that don’t embrace this worldview can just be blindly hated due to the fact that are denying humanity everlasting happiness by not embracing socialism.Back to reality though.Posted by Hank Reardon on 2008 01 08 at 02:24 AM • permalink
#29. Yep Kae, I keep forgetting that black leather thigh high boots with four inch stilleto heels was standard issue for the ladies of the the VRWC.
But I do wonder why Wronwright keeps the rest of the wardrobe department under lock and key?

Ooh, I just loved that comment about the “mystically enlightened faceless bureaucrats”.
I used to be one of them. I actually worked in an area where we dealt with the public.
We were not “mystically enlightened”, but we did wear a lot of grey cardigans. I can tell you that, to a man, we all fucking hated the general public. If our customers all died in a superheated fireball, it would have been a day or celebration.
I don’t know where people get the idea that public servants are selected on their ability to joyously and selflessly serve the public. Some start out that way, but they end up wanting to go postal after a few months.

OT: Phillip Adams continues his massive project to rewrite history
He infers that American black activist and arsehole Malcolm X was assassinated by right wing white racists when in fact he was killed by left-wing black Muslims from the nation of Islam. Phatty’s error has already been pointed by others commenting on the article at the Oz. Just drawing attention to it to keep people here up to date with Phil’s History of the World from the Perspective of a Fat, Rich, Left-Wing wanker.
I wanna be I wanna be like Tim…… (sung in the style of I wanna be like Mike)
The other thing I dont like are the broard generalisations they are using in relation to bloggers on this site. I think you are all individuals with common beliefs at times. You are all wonderful to read and I thank you for the endless hours of enjoyment you give me each and every week.
I just want to know why they know so much about Tim. I mean how many of you actually go and read those blogs everyday as they clearly come and read in here. If they dont like it dont read it sounds pretty simple to me
“all the grumbling and crying and chewing and drooling”

Before it is deleted…my last and final post at the Vile Vegetation site.
*Not an El Cid/Habib/Paco inspired threat of actual violence, but a figure of speech, just in case the dumb fuckers are reading this (and they are… ~~~~~~~waves at the suckers~~~~~~~~ Yoohoo, want a sip of my champagne or a spank on the botty with my velvet rope?)
I don’t deal in threats motha fucka…fact. I’d stomp your fucking neck (figure if speech, as you say) and laugh at the way your eyes pop out.
Those with fetishes for velvet ropes, usually love show tunes…little boi…Buwhaaaaaa.
In fact, I may be coming to OZ, soon..I will look you up…boi…LOL.
Then we shall see, who/whom laughs last…Hint, it will NOT be you.
If you cunts were hear in font of me I would kill yas all fuck you!!!11!!
Now was this one you guys impersonating dear Jeremy to take the piss. If so…well done but if this was Jeremy then all I have to say is:
Which ‘font’ would that be Jeremy – bold or italic ?
That whole impersonating of Tim’s blog concept is too funny…makes you appreciate leftards do have a reason to exist
Yes, I do keep the wardrobe room (not closet) locked, except during business hours. Why? Because of those silly little games the minions and minionettes were playing with leather boots, chaps, and vests. We’re not here to play games! The world won’t be taken over by itself you know.
I also lock up the font cabinet, the mead stores, and of course, the treasury. And lately, our inventory of whipped cream. I won’t bother explaining why it was necessary to do the latter.

“I want to live in a society, not an economy!”
I hear that one all the time but still haven’t worked out what all it means…
I believe what they mean is they’d rather live someplace where who, how, and why you interact with people is controlled on the basis of “society’s needs”, rather than your own wishes, abilities, and contributions to the well-being of others.
Naturally, they assume they would be the ones deciding what constitutes “society’s needs”, and that their decisions would be benevolent and altruistic.Posted by Rob Crawford on 2008 01 08 at 08:59 AM • permalink

Do we offer to go through and help sweep the place, y’know before the host’s mum gets home and finds the mess?
Or would it be so bad if we were never invited back?
Hmmm I do remember a certain New Years’ Eve at the Lychee Club in San Francisco…

Despite Jeremy Sear vowing not to play Tim for a day. He has here.
Reminds me of this from Julius Caesar:
“I thrice presented him a kingly crown,
Which he did thrice refuse: was this ambition?”

How can you keep trying to parody Blair and then claim the Blair posters who respond parodically are immature?
That’s really immature.
