The Joey Gilbert Show: all drama, some meth

Posted by Ryan Jerz on Thursday January 31, 2008.

It’s another installment of the Reactionary Hurl, the series that makes useless comments about things you may or may not care one lick about. You are encouraged implored to take part by commenting, sending us tips, and spreading the word. I’d love it if the choices for President weren’t complete crap. There is a chance they won’t be, but it’s not like the Democrats are doing a whole lot to help me out (Republicans are hopeless, despite the fact that the worst of them is now gone). I’d love to trip to SoCal for a baseball game at the Coliseum, but we need to hurry. A journalistic innovator closes up one shop. That’s too bad, but I’ll say that later. And my man Joey Gilbert’s dad thought he should defend his son’s positive test for roids and meth as a personal attack. By whom, Joey’s own urine? And can someone throw me a LinkedIn introduction to Joey? I’m sure he’d be a big fan.

  • Dodgers vs. Some Team from Boston at the Coliseum! If you drive, I’ll buy the tickets. And check out the short porch in left! (True Blue LA)
  • Chicago Crime is done. This is a true innovation in journalism and Adrian Holovaty was rewarded handsomely for his brilliance. It’s too bad the site has to go, but it’s a testament to his genius that it is redundant now. I’ve often wondered how to pull off a similar thing in Reno (not necessarily with crime) but lack the time/desire/skills combination that’s necessary to do so. (
  • Are the Democrats stupid? Based on one email to Andrew Sullivan, yes. This resonated with me particularly because I am on the edge. I can’t see myself voting for any (either?) of my own party’s candidates so the logical choice is the Democrat. The one thing that scares me more than any particular issue is the dynastification of the presidency. Therefore, I can’t vote for Hillary Clinton. No matter who she runs against. (The Daily Dish)
  • It’s officially become ‘The Joey Gilbert Saga’. After testing positive for roids and meth, and having that positive confirmed, Joey appears to be going the all-too-familiar route of slamming everything but the fact that he was doping. Scorched Earth. So he decides that the people overseeing him shouldn’t be doing so (because, obviously, that’s why he tested positive), he now has the support of his own father who says this is simply a personal attack by his detractors. Considering there have been no less than 15 articles in Joey’s hometown paper, that has rarely had a problem helping promote his garbage fights, talking about his confirmed positive test for roids and meth, since the confirmed positive test, I can’t believe they’d try to sell us this crap. Just ban his ass for life so we can move on. (RGJ x 15)

That wore me out. ∑AEs are all drama.

I’ve updated the Joey Gilbert portion of this post. Please see it here

And just to be clear, please read the initial Reactionary Hurl so you can understand the context.

Ryan JerzRyan Jerz is an all-around good guy who wants people to eventually refer to him as "that dude who climbs mountains."
