I’ll Take A Moment…

…to send my best wishes and prayers to my friend and former NARN colleague Michael Brodkorb and his family.  Michael was critically injured in an accident last night.

And whatever your political point of view, I’d urge you to do the same.

Not much information is available.

UPDATE:  A demented ghoul tried to comment that I was “defending (alleged) drunk driving”.  No; for starters, it’s alleged.  Beyond that?  The time for hashing that out is after he’s recovered.

It’s been a big day for dementees on this blog.

  1. (Comment from disturbed frequent visitor – who sometimes comments as “Eerie”, or “Cupkaake”, from 24.118.133.11 deleted for the sender’s own mental well-being)

    (“He” didn’t read like Gleason, though. This one’s more like Ken Weiner).

  2. MB has had more than his share of trouble lately. Hope he recovers and gets back to a normal life.

  3. It is a tragic event, and I hope he recovers completely. No snark.
    I would add that it appears pretty well established at this point that alcohol was involved, and that he was not wearing his seatbelt.
    If that report holds up as factual, then we can only be grateful that no one else was injured. His poor family has been through so much; my heart goes out to them, in sympathy, as they would for anyone badly injured.
    It does appear to be his own decisions that have caused his troubles, which doesn’t make them any less difficult for him or for those who are impacted by them.

  4. I always thought that his sacking following the fling with Koch was plain horse crap. A private affair between consenting adults, why should it be a public concern. I wish Michael a speedy and complete recovery. Any legal issues will get sorted out later.

  5. “appears pretty well established at this point”
    “If that report holds up as factual”

    DG, YOU’RE A JERK OF THE 1ST ORDER, PLEASE JUST GO AWAY!!

  6. DG., you’re a complete ghoul and idiot. Just because you can smell alcohol on someone’s breath does not mean that they were drunk, much less drunk enough to have had his driving impaired by alcohol. He may well have been but you might notice that the cops are reserving judgement until the test results come back and you should do the same.

    Not a Brodkorb fan, but I wish him the best.

  7. 24.118.133.11

    That’s Comcast. I’m also 24.118 at home. (Not that that means anything…)

  8. Best wishes go out to family.

    But why was one of the first tweets I saw on the subject from Koch?
    Talk about political and personal tone deafness.

  9. Coppers wipe Captain Morgan on their upper lips so they “strongly smell the odor of alcohol” during traffic stops.

    Assholes like DG don’t have a worry until they start wiping shit on there.

  10. Brodkorb suspected of DUI? Always remember, in the eyes of Democrats: When a Republican is accused of a crime, they are guilty until proven innocent. Then they are still guilty. If a Democrat is accused of a crime, they are innocent, and there is no arguing the contrary. And, even if they are guilty, their pure white political views absolves them of even the most heinous deeds.

  11. One day it’s defending those poor misunderstood Nazis from a far greater evil: the National Rifle Association.

    The next day it’s too bad someone got hurt but he had it coming.

    What will tomorrow bring?

  12. More information is available in the increasingly poor decisions of Michael Brodkorb…dude pissed a 0.10 at the hospital, and who knows how long after initially hitting the road was his boozy piss collected and bottled. DUI charges are currently under review. No longer alleged, straight up fact, he was getting his drink on and then hit the streets in his Subaru wagon seatbelt free, for freedom! Nerdbert, Gerdermen, Swiftee, Mitch, and the other “alleged” drunk driving apologetics above, you’re very lucky he didn’t take anyone with him.

    I’m sure that this post will be quickly deleted, my IP banned, there might be some shallow mocking(which is amazing, since, you know, defending a local drunk driver on local streets and all that…), and you cowards will go back to your regularly scheduled circle jerk.

    “Who knows?” In other words, you don’t, but you’ll cast aspersions anyway.

    No, genius. Until he’s convicted, it’s still alleged.

    Nerdbert, Gerdermen, Swiftee, Mitch, and the other “alleged” drunk driving apologetics above, you’re very lucky he didn’t take anyone with him.

    I’m sorry, Mr. Onanymous (it started as a misspelling, but it seems to fit, so I left it); when did I “apologize” for drunk driving?

    And how am I lucky, or not? I didn’t drive drunk. I’m not responsible for his actions.

    Which is big talk coming from a “guy” who snipes at people without having the balls to use his real name.

    Oh, I have a hunch; the masturbatory tone says “Bill Gleason”.

    But seriously, don’t flatter yourself. You present no moral, legal or intellectual challenge. You’re just a gutless sock puppet yipping at his betters.

  14. Plead guilty, which was all he could do really, with the gallons of booze piss in his body and front seat of his Subaru and pants and no seat belt marks on his pale supple fleshy parts. Not like he could sue his damning booze piss for gender inequality in the workplace.

    “I accept complete responsibility for my behavior and I apologize… and I should have made different decisions(about tapping that ass, you know the one, and the driving while drunk no seat belt thing party clown thing)”, said Brodkorb in a statement. “If you’re drinking don’t drive, and if you’re driving don’t drink”, quoting the Beastie Boys track “Live at PJ’s” from the 1992 release of Check your Head.

    Will you do the same Mitch, you know, make all nice and conciliatory after bleatingly raising your pen of thoughtful right wing justice as the hot dog froth drips from your jowls in the defense of the now guilty character assassin malicious litigation party clown?

    Everyone take a drink when Mitch types back, and chug if it’s about the 2nd amendment(gunz ‘r just hand penises, but with death jizz!), the economy being destroyed by underage girls paying for abortions with money that doesn’t even have a football player on it, or the Boss secretly gay marrying Ronald Reagan.

  15. CHN:

    Did you have to clean up after you wrote that? Were you watching porn?

    You’re the same “guy” who commented as “MADD” down below – and again, you read like you’re in the middle of pleasuring yourself as you wrote about…Brodkorb? WTFever.

    You’re a bizarre little person. I’d say “go choke on a dick”, but that’s probably what gets you going.

    Please find something productive to do with your “life” while you still can.
