Casey Reynolds – Trojan Mole
Several weeks ago, an event occurred here in Anchorage that had union-hatin’, librul-bashin’, flag-huggin’, gun-totin’, tree-choppin’ conservatives blowing their weeping noses into their hankies. Casey Reynolds had disappeared. Moved out of state.
Until just weeks ago, he was bloviating every morning on right-wing talk radio in Anchorage. When he wasn’t mocking public employees and union members, he was pronouncing Delaware a stand up place to do business because of all the white people, or suggesting that raping a prostitute should be viewed as more of a “theft of services.”
In an age when every Republican male seems obligated to make an offensive comment about rape, the former state GOP operative, KFQD talk jock, and Dan Sullivan lackey has checked off that box, as well.
He might not have had much talent. He might not have been intellectually gifted, but darn it, he was always on point. It was almost as if he were given a bullet point list of things to say. Almost as if he were channeling the regressive talking points of the Republican Party that he used to work for as the communications director. Almost as if he were some kind of marionette, or mouthpiece, or… what’s the image I’m searching for?
But then, quite recently, he vanished from these parts. And while conservatives were rending their clothing and keening to the heavens, the progressive faction and labor movement were toasting with 100 proof happy juice, and dancing naked around the campfire, and doing whatever else it is those middle class working people do.
But now we’ve had a sighting. It’s kind of like when someone spots a chupacabra, only more horrifying.
You, gentle reader, will never guess where he turned up.
Word comes through the grape vine that Mr. Reynolds has been sighted in another bastion of whiteness – the great state of Kansas. And it seems that Mr. Reynolds is seeking employment.
It also appears that he hasn’t quite figured out that if you do something (make a name for yourself bashing labor, let’s say) in one state (Alaska for instance), the internets will remember it, and then tell people far away. Doh! Back in the good old days, all you had to do was climb into a giant wooden horse and wait outside the gates. But today, this new-fangled technology ruins all that “leaping out of a horse belly in the middle of the night and slaying all the soldiers” fun. Damn you, Google!
The union hater, who spent countless hours railing on the airwaves against teachers, public education, graduation coaches, and all things labor has decided he would really like to be the new communications director for the American Federation of Teachers, in Kansas.
Yes, that would be one of the largest teachers unions in the country. He’s a huge supporter now, you know. That whole “hate the unions” thing was sooooo three weeks ago.
And speaking of disappeared untalented right wing bloviators, anybody know what happened to Dan Fagan? Maybe we ought to call PETA. I think they just hired someone to head up their whole “fishing hurts” campaign.
