Michele Bachmann really made a name for herself this year.. Let's hope 2012 doesn't go the same way.

She will be even more popular in 2012, mostly because of liberals love for her.

 Right, because liberals were crazy about her in 2011.

Look at the polling, Kirk. Republicans don't even like her.

I certainly hope that your comment isn't an example of your "extremely logical thinking". Still, I'll put that in the folder marked "Kirk's idiot predictions" and throw it in your face throughout the year.

What a sneaky master plan I've put into place right kirk?   The more stupid and crazy things I say the more popular I get because of those stupid liberals.  We will show them because who wouldn't want to vote for a political party that features deep thinkers like me?   Remember people its a simple choice; you can vote for a time wasting socialist who uses the government to do things like kill Osama Bin Laden and saving the auto industry or you can vote for me who will use the government to do important things like pick on gay people and teach the masses how the HPV vaccine will make you retarded.  Don't believe me that really happens?   Do some research idiots!   I learned all about it from some random lady I met on the street!   It's called being informed you stupid liberal morons.

Drum Roll PleaseAnd the commenter that received more likes than any other Citypages commenter for their extremely logical thoughts.The award go to....Damn, would you look at that; it's myself, with 84 likes in 2 days!

And the runner up goes to.... Damn, would you look at that; again it's myself, with 72 likes!

I say it would have been so much more, but Citypages closed the comments, for the page, after 2 days.359 comments on the article in two days, and the story doesn't make the top ten?

search for: "Mob of black teenagers beats white people at Wisconsin State Fair".

Come on Jen, what exactly qualified these above stories as, "Top 10 Blotter stories of 2011?"Make up things as ya go?

Living up to your name as usual.   What motivation would I have to "make up stuff" as I go?  Do you think I actually care enough to leave out a post because it garnered you "likes" ? Who's counting, anyway (Oh, wait...)?

Three of the top stories were all about the WI State Fair and updates to it, so I excluded the latter-qualifying two since they were essentially the same exact topic. 

Carry on with your jerkiness.

So you are admitting you had no standard, for which a story could make the top ten?Wouldn't the number of comments towards an article, condone that story to be a"top story."  Yep, still think you're making stuff up, especially when you respond, and yet you give no critique.   But of course, you come from the generation of "participation trophies..  Ah, Now I get where your coming from.

Besides Jen, I don't come here for "likes".  This is a liberal cesspool in which I would never expect anyone to likeanything I say. Me coming to Citypages for acceptance, is like one going to Hawaii looking to go snowboarding.

Getting that many "likes,” was very surprising, that's all.

I'd say that Jen Boyles can use whatever criteria she wishes.

I have no idea why you keep coming to a blog that you continually express abject derision for. That's also 'surprising".

It is, though, a bit odd for someone criticising a "generation of participation trophies" to give one's self an 'award', as you did.

As you wrote:"The award go to....Damn, would you look at that; it's myself, with 84 likes in 2 days!"

Also, I have yet to see anyone praising you for being "logical". A "like" doesn't necessarily mean that you made a point that was logical. It just means that you said something that someone else liked. Thus, logically, you are wrong when you claim that you received any likes for your "extremely logical thoughts.".

Since you are so extremely logical, this should be obvious.

Kirk wrote:"Getting that many "likes,” was very surprising, that's all. "

Not true. You claimed you received those "likes' for your "extremely logical thoughts". The vast majority of those "likes" came from the WI state fair articles where racists "liked" an elderly black man criticising young black people. No surprise involved at all, except that you didn't get that.

Have you noticed that virtually none of those people that "liked" you don't show up any more?

Have you noticed that Jen got more "likes" than you on this article? By your OWN standards, you would have to concede that Jen is more "logical" than you.

There's also PLENTY to criticise about your opinions beyond poor grammar and spelling. Let's see the "real" Kirk, in all of his high-school graduate glory, without the "intentional" errors. That should be a laugh.

I like how proud kirk is to get all those pats on the head by the racist Drudge readership.   Don't worry kirk I'm sure those racists will want to keep you around for being one of the good ones.

You intentionally have poor grammar?  You are such a fucking pathetic liar.

BTW, I allow the little things to slip through. (punctuation, spelling, etc.)If I did not, many here would never have a comeback...

Jen:

Do you have a class that Kirk could take on proper comma usage, punctuation, spelling, and basic grammar?
