Update from Dave Alexander. Schmalfeldt really said this online:
They all knew I had identified the wrong person. It was the right person to wrongly identify. A felon who raped his stepchildren. He was the person I pretended to believe to be @SonoranConserv. The felon was a useful patsy. May he rot in hell. What’s he gonna do? Sue me?
At any rate, all concerned were convinced that I was sold on @SonoranConserv being this kiddie raper from Washington State. That’s just what I wanted them to think.
So, in a nutshell…Bill Schmalfeldt publicized the name and picture of a convicted felon, in a cunning and calculated attempt to draw out the identity of a guy who said mean things about Bill? Bill is declaring checkmate in a 3-D chess game, which he is playing with salt shakers, packets of moist towelettes, and toys from Happy Meals played on stacks of old pizza boxes.
What about the real Michael David Jackson? Does he get to play?
David’s original post:
Oh man, we’d better hop on this one right away.
Now, in accordance with long-standing policy I won’t confirm or deny whether I’m @SonoranConserv. I will say that clever Mr. Schmalfeldt is so, so clever, though. The amazing legal mind this guy has. Announcing that you are going to add someone to your (doomed1) federal butthurt lawsuit, then slyly sneaking an early request for admission into a tweet hoping that @SonoranConserv will be so focused on what The Oaf has been doing over the past week or so- falsely calling him a child molester along with some guy out on the west coast- that @SC won’t be able to restrain himself from shouting “Hell yes, you fool!” and completely missing that Bill’s usual rules apply: that anything bad or wrong that he claims someone else has done is not bad or wrong when Schmalfeldt does it himself. This time in Bill Schmalfeldt’s pretendy-land mind his outrageous defamatory statements are completely excused because… journalism! Yeah, that’s the ticket! Journalism.
I think we may well see if that flies this time. Just sayin’.
But we are, if nothing else, polite. Bill Schmalfeldt has questions? We have answers, and from a solid source that’s never been wrong in my experience. We put his question to it, and the obviously correct answer came right up.
