Sonoran Alliance Blog Lobs Anonymous Grenade at Republican Lobbyist, Gets Blowback
We've been having fun ribbing our in-the-closet blogging buds at Sonoran Alliance for their habitual use of anonymous writers, but today the cyber-conservatives are getting flak from their own kind.
The faceless cowpokes took on Republican lobbyist Farrell Quinlan (right) in a recent blog post, slamming him for accusing state Republican Party chair Randy Pullen of hyping himself in a letter to party members. The actual substance of the inside-baseball spat, written by "STS," makes a great substitute for Ambien. But we appreciated the way Quinlan tears into his cowardly, masked accusers in his own blog post:
All I know is that when someone posts a entry brazenly proclaiming "Policing the Blogosphere" as its title, I'd really appreciate the ability to face my accuser, or at least know them as a real flesh and blood human being. But who am I to judge the judge, right? Let's put aside STS's manifest cowardice... er, no... I mean... spunky use of a pseudonym...
The anonymous swipe at Quinlan bothered a couple of commenters on the Sonoran Alliance site, too, including one who wondered aloud whether Randy Pullen wrote the anti-Quinlan post.
We don't know who "STS" is, either, but just to keep things fresh we've adjusted our own version of the Sonoran Alliance logo:
