Explanation of Term “Dog Trainer

Filed under: Dog Trainer — Patterico @ 11:53 pm

My wife says I need to explain what the term Dog Trainer means. It’s a term I use frequently on this site. It originated with Harry Shearer, and refers to the Los Angeles Times. I think you already understood that, but the wife says maybe not.

  2. I’m not sure what you mean. I have heard Shearer use the term on his radio show, “Le Show.” However, anyone interested in learning more about Shearer should visit his web site, here. He is a liberal guy who would be appalled by many of the opinions expressed on my site, and most of my readers would probably be appalled by his views. No matter. He is a brilliant commentator and entertainer. Check out his site, listen to his show, and enjoy.

  7. LA Times Cancellations increase
    At first, the Los Angeles Times admitted to losing some 3,000 subscribers over its slander of then-Gubernatorial candidate Arnold Schwarzenegger. Then that number rose to 7,000. For the past three months, it had been officially peggeed at 9,000–but Ti…

  10. [...] It’s nice to show up in Harry’s post — if for no other reason than the fact that Harry, while a lefty, is (like me) a rabid critic of the L.A. Times. He is, after all, the guy who invented the term “Dog Trainer.” All I did was steal it. [...]
