Howie Carr and The Blog That Dare Not Speak its Name

A spectacular column today in the Herald by Howie Carr “Howie Carr to hater: Bring it” in which he reveals he is a deeply misunderstood man, explains that is trying to leave his employer, and builds up BlueMassGroup.com to such a position of towering dominance — perhaps we are, in his mind, frightening thought though that is — that he assumes readers immediately know the website he is talking about when he sets “Ernie Boch III” and “Charley on the MTA” straight. I guess we know now who is lurking on Facebook waiting to hit fan 600 and get a free mug.

One imagines a white haired gentleman clad in an elegant blue blazer bent in concentration over his keyboard on a backyard patio overlooking a pool behind a gracious home in leaf-strewn Wellesly. Touching.

I guess they want me out of that AM radio station. Now, that’s funny, because what do these Birkenstock-wearing vegans think I’ve been trying desperately to do for the last, oh, four years?

A work environment like that would make anyone irritable.

The comments to the article reveal a mixture of basic confusion about essential elements of reality, angst, and evident dyspepsia that echo the parent piece. Each one is precious. What do you think of Mr. Carr’s latest literary contribution? Is this his finest work to date, or are there other gems worthy of that distinction.

  1. He doesn't know Ernie very well.

    Anyone who did would never call him a "moonbat".  If I recall EBIII has been known to skewer any candidate with a MassAlliance endorsement as a socialist.

  2. Precious!

    NICETRYBUCKO

    HOWIE I SEE THE FELON FINNERANS HAND IN ALL THIS. FIRST HE HAD BARNICLE CUT YOUR BRAKE LINE, THEN HE CREATED THIS WEB SITE. BRING IT. YOU'RE THE BEST CAPTAIN. ON A SIDE NOTE, I SAW PICS OF LETTERMAN'S WIFE. YOU BLAME HIM FOR HIS INDISCRETIONS?

    Oh SNAP! I got nothing to add to that.

  3. More $quot;pose$quot; rhetoric

    Doesn't Howie know many bloggers use pseudonyms? What year is this?

  4. Shouldn't the title of this post be ...

    "Howie Carr and That Blogger That Dare Not Speak its Name"?

    It's your blog, but just sayin'.

    Plus, EB3 is right.  Why would you ever provide more attention to someone.  Well, unless you screwed up.  Sounds like it hit pretty close to come when Regan started getting involved.

  5. I think EBIII is *really* ...

    Howie himself.

    I think this is a sock-puppet exercise to get Howie off the AM dial, like he says he wants.

    Right?

    • aha! The old....

      ... use-my-powers-of-schizophrenia-for-good  trick!!

      Drat! Why don't I ever see that one coming??!?1!

    • I *love* this angle.

      It's like the episode(s?) of Seinfeld where George tries to get himself fired from the Yankees. Howie just keeps cranking out low-grade crap, hoping to get fired/bought out, so that he can spend more time on his putting green at home in Wellesley. Turns out people love it. And he tries harder and harder to churn out objectionable crap, trying to cross that line, but he just can't escape ...

      Awesome. There's gotta be a screenplay pitch in there: "It's like Seinfeld-meets-Groundhog Day! It's comedy gold!"

  6. What puzzles me is why Howie gives you so much heartburn?

    Howie despises the, vermin that infests the state house---which is well over 50% of the criminals elected to the legislature in this  state. People like that nitwit that pissed on the tropers boots and then just gave himself a pay raise (Kojowski?) many here are apologists for these creeps (irrespective of party but primarily dems) The immediate defense of Marzilli R/T the attack on the woman who alleged he assaulted her in her own home---what's that all about?

    How about a little honesty now and then---the hypocrisy is getting old.
