HATE ME NOW: HEY D-BAGS, GO AND CHECK OUT THE TKC PITCH COVER STORY!!!



Fuck, I guess this is my life's work . . . Too bad it doesn't pay. Check it:

How Tony Botello became Kansas City's most hated – and most influential — blogger

Joe Tone did an amazing job with this article it captures all my pathetic pathos perfectly.

I was going to debate about the reference to my mom and note that "her influence" is really in a grand sense, but because we're talking about the entire life of this blog I guess that's implied. I don't want to nitpick. I liked the way this turned out.

MAD PROPS TO CRIS MULLINS PHOTOGRAPHY!!!



The models look AMAZING and my ugly mug doesn't (totally) distract. I took a shower that morning so I only stink from the old sweatshirt I'm wearing -- That's why the ladies aren't retching.

My first reaction, I had no idea I hated bitches so much.

Biggest bragging point . . . The article is tagged in Science and Technology as well.

    Hope ya CAN, cuz it was fun the wa we had it!

  18. Without totally blowing his cover I'd say Tony told them what he wanted them to hear. I happen to know he pulls in about 70K yearly doing various things, the bulk of which is freelance work. Also he doesn't live with his parents, definitely a midtowner, you'll see him around there all the time.

  19. This is all so much fuckin FUN. Best pitch story in a long time.

  20. I want to help bake cookies at your house next time you got that girl hanging out.... Seriously.

    Man.

    Dang.

  21. Nice article Tony but don't let it get to your head.

    ReplyDelete
  22. It seemed reasonably fair to me. And yes, Tony, you are harsh on women. I have been pretty okay with your take on things, even when I don't agree, but your comments during the waldo rape period were truly over the top and made me stop reading for a time. Kudos to you though for the article--no such thing as bad publicity!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I agree. Tony has good moments and bad. This is one of his better.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Looks like a fat B-Real

    ReplyDelete
  25. Your channeling Walter fuckin Winchell.

    Get a radio show, and keep hating.

    Should be a hell of a ride.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Tony DEFINITELY has a face for both radio and blogging!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Nice article, Tony.

    ReplyDelete
  28. That's the closest Tony has ever been to a boob, besides his mommys.

  29. I am going to use a line from the movie Predator:
    "You're one... ugly motherf*#&er!"

  30. Don't break your arm patting yourself on your back. People will think you're Gary Lezak.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Careful, Tony.

    Rules to Live By:
    1) Don't believe your own press
    2) Don't exaggerate your own importance.

    Otherwise, nice article and well deserved.

    ReplyDelete
  32. The danger is when you start believing in your own hype.

  33. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

  39. "I try not to meet people," he says. "It's harder to take the hatchet out when I've met someone."

    pussy. hypocrite.

    "It's kind of like being the toughest kid in Catholic school," he says, referring to the media and political circles he orbits. "You're the toughest person out of a bunch of pussies."

    At least you admit it.

    And then they're using you and you let 'em:

    "Roe, who worked on Funkhouser's campaign, says he reads the site to see what dirt his opponents have shoveled Botello's way. If he thinks the dirt is destined for actual voters, he uses the lead time to shape his candidate's response."

    "'Your opponent will dump out what they're thinking because human nature doesn't allow them to keep it quiet,' Roe says. 'Mainly because they can't help themselves. They send him something, and 20 minutes later it's on his blog.'"

    what a chump

  40. 8 years later and still not making any money.

    What a life!

    ReplyDelete
  41. this is what you do best and what you could do best:

    Jeff Roe, another political strategist: "He's got probably a couple stories that he helped shape the narrative around an issue or a candidate."

    that is, if/when you ever do grow up

    it's doubtful but it could happen

    ReplyDelete
  42. I wonder how many political consultants scrape Tony's stuff here then charge politico's two grand a whack for "political intelligence".
