then I don't get a righty impression. There are a bunch of "righties saying the quiet parts out loud" clips, but judging by who he or she chooses to retweet, it ain't anybody friendly to the right.

There are A LOT of DU'ers who don't understand that concept, who get all twisted sideways when somebody posts a crazy assed RWer saying stuff that deserves to be seen and deserved to be mocked.

They see the RW personage pop up and automatically accuse some swell good Democrat of being a Trumper.

I feel deep sorrow for those not in on the mockery. It is one of the finer things in life!

But it wasn’t clear to me. It seemed to be just retweets without qualifiers. But, thanks for easing my mind.

His name is Acyn Torabi and he monitors right-wing media and such for flubs, hypocrisy and other nefarious practices. He then posts them on his Twitter feed. He is absolutely not a right-winger. Think of him as Media Matters but with tweets.
