CSGV and the doubleplusungood couple days

I was going to call this post "CSGV and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Couple Days," after the children's book, but with CSGV being who they are, I think the Orwellian reference is more fitting.

It started small. They posted on their Facebook page a write-up about me, intended to denounce me (along with their favorite "insurrectionist" bogeyman, Mike Vanderboegh) as "treasonous." The actual effect, though, was that Mike and I each got a good laugh out of it, and that even spawned not one, but two "Quote of the Day" posts for me--and one for Mike, from generous gun bloggers. Oh--and I bestowed upon David Codrea the esteemed Portmanteau of the Day award.

Well, maybe that wasn't so bad for CSGV, despite all the fun I had with it, and the fact that it did me no discernible damage, and in fact have gotten pretty decent traffic the last couple days. CSGV actually decided to repeat that Facebook post--three nutty times. Running out of "insurrectionists," guys?

But then, things started really going downhill. Their Twitter account was suspended yesterday, for maliciously posting gun rights advocates' personal information, with the intent of harassing them--and then got caught lying about the circumstances surrounding the Twitter suspension. Some of the most detailed explanations of that can be found here, here and here.

Then today, with Facebook about their only available outlet, one of their posts gets taken down for an intellectual property theft.

What are you going to do tomorrow, CSGV, get arrested for sexually assaulting a maid?

Update: And it just gets worse.

Don't give them any ideas.

Actually, judging from what we know of the CSGV staffers, if they tried it, even the daintiest and least martial of maids would probably kick their asses.
