Yesterday, I devoted some pixels to the latest Brooks Bayne revelations regarding the #StopRush operation, including their employment of whiny loon Neal Rauhauser for some of that public relations he does so well. I didn't focus on the involvment of MSNBC contributor Krystal Ball, who sniffed out Blue Dog Dem "Randy" from the start as a troublemaker. But it was "Not Matt Edelstein" @shoq who illegally recorded "Randy" on the phone in Florida, and who subsequently shared the files with his pals, including, accidentally, "Randy."
Today, Stacy focuses on the involvement of Halloween mask-nose-dildo sucking former congressional candidate and MSNBC contributor Krystal Ball, in addition to reflecting more on Neal Rauhauser, whom Stacy expects might be about to suffer another Very Bad Day. As daily revelations make the connections in the network clearer, MMfA appears more and more a voracious black hole in the center of the online left, sucking in all the adjacent assholes.
You may or may not recall that sometime Rauhauser associate Ron Brynaert tried to threaten me with legal action, believing that I'd revealed his personal information to Aaron Walker, whom he was characterizing as a harasser. That's SOP with these guys. In the past week's profiling of Rauhauser, Stacy has recollected many of the claims of this pathetic boob. Apart from claiming expertise in a vast array of arcane security and data mining programs, all while stupidly sharing his inside information with all and sundry at unsecured websites, super spy Rauhauser has at various times represented himself as a skilled practitioner of various martial arts, which he has utilized against his ex-wife, and claimed connections with law enforcement.
I'm calling BS on a lot of this. He sounds like a drunk guy at a bar telling us about his stint with the SEALs. He wants to threaten and harass other people and come off as the kind of bad ass that you daren't round on, because he'll beat you to a pulp. Lies, lies, lies: they're all he's got.
Maybe the dude does know someone in law enforcement, but even if he does, who's going to help him after he's begun working with scum the likes of Brett Kimberlin? Who's going to listen to his whining about harassment after he's sicced his 'bean dogs' on people over political disagreements? Who the heck is going to hire him after he's exposed himself in such a wide variety of embarrassing ways online? Martial arts expert? I have to say, I've never seen anybody wield ju jitsu against himself quite as effectively. I guess it's impressive, in a way.
Then there's the fact that Rauhauser concocted a pretext on which to be on the phone with Patterico when he was SWATted a year ago. Just coincidence? Not a chance.
Neal Rauhauser, son of Iowa, was destined to go far; not far enough, however, to escape the Intarwebs. I gaze into Krystal Ball, and I see her going far, too.
