What is going on at FiredUp! Missouri? This certainly hasn't been a week Roy Temple and Jean Carnahan can be proud of. It may even rival the week when Temple ripped into Claire McCaskill, saying, "Only a narcissist like Claire McCaskill could assume that everything that happens in the world is related to her."
First they launch a job board, in itself a questionable use of their blogging space. Then, their "progressive causes" job board turns out to include jobs for what should be non-progressive causes like charities and official state offices. What a disaster! But, with egg on their faces, Roy & Jean march on, hand in hand.
Then, in what has to be the most over-reaching self-congratulatory post ever, they tell their readers how great they are for being the only Missouri blog mentioned on the Washington Post's blog's list of other state's "best blogs." Of course, if anyone looks they will find out that the way to get mentioned for the Washington Post "honor" was simply to have someone submit their name. So, who submitted FiredUp! to the Post? Was it Roy or Jean? Either way, what an embarrassment it must be to have to submit your own blog for recognition. But, red-faced, Roy & Jean march on, hand in hand.
Then comes news that FiredUp! founder (and frequent contributor via nom de plume) Roy Temple is doing polling work for 9th Congressional candidate Steve Gaw. This leads us to believe that Gaw is fine with all the goings on at FiredUp!, including the bogus progressive job board. It can't be long now before Temple and his blogging partner Jean Carnahan host a fundraiser for Gaw, so someone should ask him if he agrees with Temple's and Carnahan's positions on their FiredUp! postings. We bet he peels off, leaving Roy and Jean on the side of the road, marching on, hand in hand.
