Liberal bloggers are up in arms about a post over at the Media Blog
on National Review, which "outs" Daily Kos front page diarist Armando as attorney Armando Lloréns-Sar. Embarrassingly for Llorens-Sar, the law firm where he is a partner has reportedly handled many cases for large corporate clients including Wal-Mart.
Armando is considering quitting blogging
A major Right wing site has chosen to support a troll's campaign started at this site to out me.
The writing is on the wall. I will likely be giving up blogging as a result.
If people were wondering about why I was so adamant about this, I hope this explains it.
I have never written about my clients and whenever I had a conflict, I disclosed it. But people of ill will have no decency or limits.
If I sound bitter, it is because I am quite bitter about this.
So, this is probably so long kossacks and bloggers. I fade away.
I decided early on that as tempting as anonymity is, it's also an invitation to people to start digging. Plus, as it happens, my clients are aware of my politics.
I certainly will not miss Armando. As I like to say, he's a little prickly at times and at times you can remove the "ly" from that description. He's recently kicked a few conservative bloggers
off a bipartisan blog he founded, largely, I suspect, because they were kicking his butt.
Especially check the comments on this post
, where Armando comes across like Captain Queeg muttering about the strawberries:
Please go on Tall Dave.
I am not buying it.
You write like Hugh Hewitt.
Here’s a test for you.
Write a post on the choice issue. Then write a post on the drug war issue. Then write one on the minimum wage issue.
Explain in detail why the Republicans are extreme and wrong on each of these.
Write those before you write anything else here.
Your disagreement is not the issue Dave. Trevino and I disagree on EVERYTHING.
It is your credibility. Frankly, it is your honesty, or lack thereof.
I have found you to NOT be honest.
I have found you to be Hugh Hewitt Jr.
Write like Hewitt and I will treat you like Hewitt.
You are clearly a Republican at heart. And your pretense that you are not is laughable.
You spew GOP talking points like water.
By the way, I hate people who capitalize words for emphasis; it's a sign of weak writing skills.
