Dispel Some Rumours

I heard their is/was a rumour going on around the blog world about me and this blog, etc.

Just to clear the air: I am NOT ABC News senior correspondent Jake Tapper.

I honestly dont know how these things get start. Just because are writing style and political leanings are so similar doesnt mean I am him. Nor he me.

So in closing, plz remeber: I am NOT Jake Tapper.


UPDATE: Apparenty this rumor has legs so to speak. In case you were confused: its not "I am IS Jake Tapper", its: "I am NOT Jake Tapper".

UPDATE 3/26: Their is still some confusion about I am not Jake Tapper. Therefore I am (Temporary) changing my handle (not my real name, btw) to NOTJakeTapper.

Wait, are you saying that you ARE Jake Tapper?

Dean04Prez said...

No, thats just it. Im NOT Jake Tapper.

Anon. said...

it sounds like you're hinting that you are. It'd be useful if you could show that u and him were at diff. places at the same time. Somehow, I suspect you'll find a reason for why you can't/won't...

Dean04Prez said...

Im way more progressive than he is. At least 15x more.

stoorat said...

Both Peter Parker and Clark Kent also denied being their superhero alter egos, so this must be your way of confirming that you are indeed Jake Tapper?

*wink* *nudge*

Message received!

mack said...

I told you Stoorat would straighten things out for you.

NOTJakeTapper said...

In order to make this more clearer, I am (teporarily) changing my HANDLE (not real name) to NOTJakeTapper. I hope this clears up any confusion

Two Dogs said...

Since Peter Parker was a rope smoking pansy, are we now to assume that Jake Tapper is gay, too? This is getting confusing.

NOTJakeTapper said...

I dont know because I'm NOTJakeTapper

On September the 18th (2008), Jake Tapper was in SF. Where were you and can you provide any evidence?

NOTJakeTapper said...

I never even been to Santa Fe

Two Dogs said...

I think that Anon meant the Special Forces. NOT Santa Fe, NOT Jake Tapper.

NOTJakeTapper said...

I am/was a USMC (marines) veteran but not special forces (seals).

Anon. said...

please answer the question. Where were you on sept 18th 2008??

also, is yr mustache inspired by queen's singer or by one of the fellows who sang ymca?

NOTJakeTapper said...

Brian May?

NOTJakeTapper said...

I need to get back to on where I was on that date. I misplaced my planner.

mack said...

Anon, where were YOU on sept 18th 2008??

And where do you get off asking other people?

I can't remember for nuts where I was on that date.

Two Dogs said...

I am not "Anon," but I was in Biloxi, staying at the Imperial Palace and walking Katrina housing during the day. Very easily found, Mack. If you would like me to go back further, I can only go back as far as 1983.

And the singer was Freddie Mercury, Jake Tapper.

stoorat said...

Suddenly mack is getting defensive...maybe he's Jake Tapper. I'd imagine you also can't remember where you were on July 30th, 1975? And how about June 17th, 1972? Where were you on November 22nd, 1963 Mr. Tapper? Perhaps on a grassy knoll?

mack said...

If I had a name like Tapper I'd change it, anyway. I heard of a scientist-inventor who's name was Mr Tinkle. I'd have changed that too if I was him. I hadn't been born in 1963 so I don't know where I was. I bet Stoorat knows where I was. He knows everything.

stoorat said...

I just can't figure out if that whole, "He knows everything" line is hostility or admiration.

Either way, I can't argue its accuracy!

stoorat said...

I hadn't been born in 1963 so I don't know where I was.

I see that, criminal mastermind that you are, you've spent considerable time putting together an alibi. Brilliant as usual, my Nemesis, but I'll catch you out yet!

Anon. said...

this thread has gone off on baroque tangents. The question still stands: where was dean04prez/notjake on sept 18th? How convenient that he 'misplaced' his planner.
Somehow I expected that sort of evasive answer.

Anon.

Anon. said...

and mack, I fail to see how it's any of yr business where I happened to be on sept 18th. Besides, the sheer irony. One moment you ask of my whereabouts and the very next you argue that it's somehow wrong to ask such questions. Let's not get distracted from the essential point (see above). We can discuss everyone else's location on that date some other time.
