    This is sort like asking why something that is utterly atrocious can't just be really atrocious, but ...

    Can somebody please explain to me how Propaganda Village "defies all stereotypes".

    That's the first time I've heard of "being a prevaricating invertebrate" as "being cool."

    Cool?? Who is this (expletive deleted)-kissing reporter??

    I left a comment. Disqus messed up the formatting and for some reason won't let me fix it, but anyway.

    One might surmise that the comments are just a tad on the hostile side. :)

    came late to the party but got my two cents in.

    Is TSA paying Bloomberg for this garbage?

    I suspect that TSA is using whatever pressure they can bring to bear on getting crap like this posted. Seems like theme postings.

    Egads! Who in their right mind would want to be anything like bloviating Curtis "Bob" Burns?

    No, thanks. Personally I'd rather be a tapeworm before emulating that smarmy, grade-A (expletive deleted).

    No. This is a tweety puff-piece image enhancer from a taxpayer-paid PR budget that's much much larger than PV. "Cool" seems to be snarky immature put-down humor. The "reporter" is completely ignorant of the propagandistic dimensions of her topic. TSA is merely annoying and unfunny to her.

    She's been soundly thumped in the comments.

    You have to question any persons sanity if they think Blogdad Boob (new name given TSA's focus on boobies) is cool.

    It's a schooled youth culture appreciation of his humor*, without the first understanding of the seriousness of the issues involved and thus the twistedness of his communincation in reply.

    *Sarcasm. It's "Complaints Department"entertainment. Nothing is serious. You mock the stupid complainer who might not even 'get' that they're being made fun of. A big inside joke.

    Mockery is a great weapon.
