The overwhelming stench of Brancaccio's hypocrisy.

Lou turned himself into a moron yesterday with his idiotic sniveling over a likely set up bitchfest about a small Benton campaign sign.

As previously described here, Brancaccio's hypocrisy is legendary.  But this?  This is way over the top.

Tiffany Couch, a heroine of the CRC wars, blew so many holes in Brancaccio in the comments section underneath Lefty's idiocy that he can't even hold water this morning.  But what pegged the hypocrisy meter from Brancaccio was this:
  • Lou Brancaccio · Top Commenter · Editor in chief at The Columbian
    Your damage control is appreciated Tiffany. I suspect you're not used to being challenged when you say false things. I knew you were a supporter of some folks but I never thought you'd wade into defending defenseless positions. I'm sorry to see that. Fair enough. At least we know where you stand. Thanks.
For THIS lying scumbag to tell someone else... particularly someone else instrumental in handing him his ass in a basket, that HE "suspect(s) she's not used to being challenged when SHE says false things?"

This from, perhaps, the biggest liar this county has ever SEEN?

This kind of arrogance is just one of the reasons to despise scum like him.

For Lefty Lou to seriously challenge someone ELSE'S veracity given his year's long record of lies, distortions, attacks, insults and cancer on our community?  To say this to someone ELSE is the very height of hypocrisy.  It is, in fact, the very definition of the word.

Not everyone smart enough to disagree with this ass clown has a hidden motive or agenda.  Most actually have the common sense missing from Lefty's world that is given to a box of rocks.  Lefty lies by inference, and walks directly into Tiffany's fan, where she slices his lying ass into sushi.

And then Greg Owens of all people whacks him upside the head with a reality check, and THIS moron comes back with a claim that "It's important to develop personal responsibility?"

Since when has Brancaccio shown a scintilla of it?

Lou, you seriously need help.  Your journalistic irresponsibility and jihad against those smart enough to cut you under at the knees shows your obsession about retaliation and your inability to grasp how much you look like a bully, a playground punk.

All of this reflects back on the guy who owns your paper.  And he would be money ahead to kick your ass to the curb, pronto.

Here, unedited, are the facebook discussions in question:

I did a stupid thing. I watched this stupid video, and found some problems with these "allegations". First, I live in the 49th district. This street is directly below my house and is IN the 49th district. How did not one, but two Benton signs get there in the first place? Strike 1. In the last 2 months or so we have had an inordinate amount of road construction on HWY 99.... with streets being opened up and repaved. You can imagine the amount of dirt, grease, and debris that would be on this pristine white sign given this, a major snow storm, and the latest round of rainstorms. Strike 2. You can't be a good citizen and pick up the trash and the suspect sign?! Strike 3. I cringe at the embarrassing stuff that the Columbian continues to do. It is so totally unprofessional and juvenile that there are no words for it. Truly unbelievable!

    When you make a charge like this against a citizen like Jim Carrie I hope you have something to back it up. Why would he have Don Benton signs like that from months ago waiting for -- what? -- his anticipation that Benton would months later decide to level a litter fine against us? You funny.
  • Tiffany LeMay Couch · Top Commenter · Principal at Acuity Forensics
    I made no charge against any citizen here - only a charge against the Columbian for not doing their own due diligence, as one would expect from a responsible, reputable newspaper. If you're going to make an allegation that there are signs littered by Benton - or anyone for that matter - than you have to look at all potential sides. You didn't. I'm just pointing out additional information that might allow for readers to make an informed decision.
  • Tiffany LeMay Couch · Top Commenter · Principal at Acuity Forensics
    I'm sure a fine editor like you "knows" when to use "know" and "no"....SIGH....Mr. Brancaccio - I hate the stupid stuff that is happening with our County government. Most of us do. But, to let yourself and your newspaper stoop to such blatant and juvenile tactics on a regular basis is truly cringe-worthy. Seriously, just elevate yourself to a higher standard, at least above the curb level and out of the gutter. It would be the first step towards bringing this County together, as you claim you wish to do. Just back up your words with actions. That is all.

    One more thought and then I'll go. It's beautiful and sunny where I'm sitting right now. There's no greater place to live or work than right here in Clark County. There are so many great people and great stories to tell. Stories about work, stories about giving, stories about kids, stories about selfless acts, stories about the awesome place we have the privilege of residing in. I know for a fact some of those stories are happening in the County offices, among other places. I encourage you to seek out those people and those stories. Start telling people about all of the POSITIVES about where we live and work and how we come together for the good of each other. Just like this beautiful spring day, it would be refreshing. A welcome change. Heck, it might even sell some newspapers!

    Tiffany LeMay Couch : " Start telling people about all of the POSITIVES about where we live and work..."

    Here's some! We're gonna have a third bridge real soon! Your FB friend, County Commissioner David Madore promised not only would there be an East County Bridge crossing the mighty Columbia River, he implied we'd all be driving on it in five years! Wow! That's great news!

    Sorry to hear that you continue to want to get in the weeds with me. Damage control? Sorry you see it that way. It was a sincere attempt to be nice. Also, defending a position? Nowhere in my comments have I defended Don Benton or his actions or this proposed tax. Nor will I. I solely wanted to point out the idiocy of the video you chose to post and the fact that additional considerations should have been mentioned.
  • Tiffany LeMay Couch · Top Commenter · Principal at Acuity Forensics
    As for Mr. Rutledge, you seriously don't want to get in the weeds with me on the CRC. Please. I'm so over that....aren't you? I for one would like to see us come together and move forward. If Mr. Madore supports a third bridge or an 8th bridge on the west or the east or on the moon - then more power to him. That has nothing to do with me. He's not been a client of mine for more than a year, now. But nice try. Did you know that RTC supports an eastside bridge (as well as a westside one).... and if you look at the numerous corridor studies that occurred between 1999 and 2004, before the CRC office opened, you'd see that the very same engineers who became the contractors on the CRC project actually proposed one as well. Here's a link to one of many reports that include the concept. I can send you more, if you'd like. Message me at tcouch@acuityforensics.com and I will send them to you. Have a great day! http://www.rtc.wa.gov/reports/vision/VisioningCorridors.pdf

The responses here automatically assume/presume the worst from Tiffany.  Because for Lou, any time he deals with someone he despises, they're guilty... until proven innocent.

During Boldt's abortive re-election campaign where I hammered him like a nail over his failures as a commissioner, I was routinely... and falsely... charged with being paid by Madore to beat up my own brother in law.

Within the last month, at least one of the fringe-left CRC Scammer types alleged that Madore was continuing to pay me... even though neither he nor anyone connected to him, directly or indirectly, has or ever will pay me for what I write here.

To these clowns, the very idea that people can object to their idiocy, stupidity and arrogance MUST be because there's a dollar figure attached.

The idea that one could, in fact, live here and demand that those who are SUPPOSED to actually PROVIDE the truth do so and be held accountable when they don't (You know, like Brancaccio, Leave-it or Stuart?) can ONLY be driven by dollars, or a lust for power,  or a crank political philosophy is the red meat of the left.

When did anyone from Lou's side of the political spectrum EVER make an effort to fight for political compromise?

His response... and the response of all of those on his side from Royce to Craig to Ed to Tiffany to Ed to Steve... is uniformly to attack... to ignore... to belittle... to insult.  When has Lou or any of his ilk made a sincere effort to work with those in government with which they disagree?

The basis for our government at all levels is the support of the people.  The will of the people is supposed to be the primary concern of those who would govern.  After all, this isn't China or Russia or Iraq of Syria.

What has Lou done... what is Lou doing to help?  What is Lou doing to make this community a better place?  Why is this all about what he thinks, what he wants, what he demands?

It isn't.

Elections have consequences.  And the rather stupid, self-centered conclusion that everyone in this county wants what Lou wants, and that his word processor dictates to the people and that everyone who doesn't jump through the hoops he holds up will become victims of his vindictive, fringe-left ink jet is as empty a threat as any he's ever uttered are but a symptom of the sickness he represents.

The loss of Lou's most recent pet project has been primarily greeted with a spectrum that goes from celebration on one hand to yawns on the other.  Lou is livid because of his now proven irrelevance.  Driven by his blinding hatred, he's searching for the now-eluding him relevance.

Living in his leftist cocoon, with a proven record of not caring what the people of this county think: someone who believes that if he lies enough, it will somehow, magically, become the truth... he is determined to destroy, instead of showing equal determination to build up.

And the weak willed, weak minded so drawn to being told what to do... an ever-shrinking universe for him, to be sure... lap it up.  And this community is much the weaker for it.
