The Dead

Hey, remember this?

No? Gee it would be a shame if the joke was over already.

Anyway, let's visit RIGHTNETWORK and see what they have achieved since famous and successful person Kelsey Grammer's endorsement. Look at all those options!

This colour scheme is kinda Hallowe'en influenced...

Hmm, the featured ORIGINAL SERIESes appear to be Father's Day troop greetings...

Golf.  Frightening.

And they don't load. That's kind of spooky.

Mmmmm, pie.

It's kinda hard to figure out when the last non-series-video was added except via comments and there aren't a lot of those. When were people last around? From what might be the most recent Kelsey Grammer video:

Is there, in fact, an app for that?

Nobody answered him. Was he ever heard from again? Let's creak open the door and check the VOICES section out. Any better?

It took TWO people to put Soros in the Muslim broth.  Was he fighting and screaming?

I suppose you can't say the old content here is really that different from new content elsewhere...still, there's a whole website just sitting here with nobody around. Weird. Surely there is someone behind the scenes to mark something as FLAGGED isn't there?

Terrorist mastermind WHO? Ha ha. No, I am not just nervously kidding to hide the eerie silence and mysterious disappearance of...

Hey! A COMMUNITY! Come on, let's go ask the locals what happened!

Drifting along with the tumbling tumbleweeds.

Gee, the occasional tweet from crazy people stuck in the past seems to make it in to echo around a bit, but apart from that it's just ads from afar dressed in the old hollowed-out skins of #RIGHTNETWORK hashtags. Ewww. Shiver. Whatever is supposed to be in that Facebook box is not. Nobody's actually inhabiting the place. And yes, yes, the site's code has been corrupted with tumbleweeds.

Well, it looks like a ghost town. Nothing to do here but head out to find a pla— OW! OH MY GOD THERE'S A REDIRECT TO THE GATEWAY PUNDIT! RUN! RUN!

Brains required.

Ah, Rightnetwork... I remember them... they recruited that nice youngGerard van der Leun as their Editor-in-Chief to lend them his special Sadim touch.

According to his Contributions page there, he started with a bang with 20 stories dated 24 Nov 2010... then his enthusiasm trickled away... his last story is a paean to small towns, dated 16 Feb 2011.

Meanwhile, what's that over to the right, in the 'Recent Activity' box?
Voices | James Lileks is "Distinctly American"

Oh dear.

You will recall James Wolcott using the phrase "shuttered ghost town" to describe earlier stages in van der Leun's career.

It's a Potemkin Village just waiting for a coherent conservative community to show up. Um, no hurry guys, but, you know, still here.

Needs moar squatters.

Now I am imagining this with Maurice Sendak illustrations.

I went to look at Stephen B - Food For Thought who said he would make my sides ache from laughing. I waited and waited but he did not load!!! My sides are unhurt. Imagine my disappointment.

Discretion is the better part of valor, and boy is that community discrete.
