Blog Owner “Pwns” Commenter, Then Gets “Pwned” Himself

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 9:50 pm



How the mighty fall.

One day after reaching the pinnacle of “pwnage” in this post, in which Ace takes on a pretentious commenter who pretends to see movies he never really saw, Ace gets on his high horse about the “I Saw Your Boobs” Academy Awards song, saying nobody gave those poor actresses a heads up before their reaction shots.

Which were clearly staged. Cleeeeeeaaarly. A fact which it took Ace forever to acknowledge.

Bad news, Ace: Phil Hendrie does the voices of the guests too.

Ah, well. Just when you get too self-righteous, the universe delivers a slap-down. Let that be a lesson to all of you.

  1. Funny!

    I didn’t get the brouhaha over it, anyway. If someone has a problem with the “sexism” of it, they should focus it on the industry that often requires actresses to do partial or full nudity while rarely requiring the same of men

    Do people think these actresses don’t know people are looking at their boobs?

  3. Ace can string well-written sentences together, after a hiatus, but hypocrisy just is not in his vocabulary.

    2. He does have some exceptionally funny commenters tho.

  4. Yeah, but the “eschaton” thread was killer-good.

  5. Dude does have the best website on the wires for conservatives. Tells it like it is. Mans up to. Nice.

  6. First off, instant karma can be a bitch. Pride goeth before…you know the rest.

    Second, good on Ace for owning up and making a post on this. I notice that his commenters are giving him a heaping-helping ration of stuff, which is pretty normal over there.

    Third, once you have beclowned yourself so publicly, what choice do you have? Well, you could delete all your posts and comments and deny deny deny, get your sycophants to lie on your behalf and hope the whole thing blows over, and then run for office as a Democrat.

  7. A man willing to say “Derp!” at the proper moment is nearest to perfection.

  8. Ace went Charles Johnson so long ago it’s not even funny.

  9. Ace is a phony. I haven’t been to his blog in nearly 2 years.

    Ooohhh yes it was – far too much fun watching that go down. Here’s the funniest post in the (original movie review) thread after they spent many, many posts mocking him for not knowing there was no “volcano scene” in said movie:

    I can’t wait to tell him there really IS a volcano. –ace

    Ace’s commenters rock. No wonder Andrew Breitbart used to joke he only read the comments. Well that and Ace’s movie reviews are like book length – another running gag over there.

  12. Ace is my favorite blogger, easily. Not because I agree with him the most… I actually often disagree with him. But because he keeps things authentic and isn’t afraid to be wrong (which ultimately makes him look like a stronger person).

    The authenticity also makes him look fickle, but all intellectually honest people are a bit fickle about controversial things.

    Blogging is a weird thing. Utter certitude will get one lots of links and plaudits, but the writers I trust most are the ones who are more interested in getting the story right than in being seen to be right.

    Conviction isn’t worth much if it depends on refusing to face the occasional inconvenient fact or doubt squarely.
