Jim Acosta’s book proves the Dear Diary Meme is spot-on

Say, remember last year when everybody started quote tweeting every one of Jim Acosta’s tweets with the words “Dear Diary?”  Last June, Neontaster started the Dear Diary Meme with this hilarious tweet.

And it wasn’t just a viral meme.  It was a pandemic.

A year later and the Dear Diary Meme is still alive and kicking.

I’ve had fun with it – creating diary entry Photoshops for posts featuring Jim (HERE, HERE, and HERE).

In fact, when the news first broke that Jim Acosta was going to be writing a book, I piggy-backed off the Dear Diary Meme and tossed out this title suggestion:

Dear Diary Meme

Well, Jim’s book has finally been released.  And from the looks of the snippets Jim is sharing on Twitter, it looks like the whole Dear Diary Meme was spot-on.

Jim included a snippet when he sent out this tweet yesterday (I’ve transcribed the snippet below):

First off.  “Say something to my face” is something a twelve year old boy would say.

I’ve dutifully transcribed the quote Jim shared from his book.  And while you read it, keep in mind that a publisher paid him money for this kind of juvenile writing.

As I set foot on the bus, I immediately spotted two of my biggest critics: Tucker Carlson and Sean Hannity, Trump’s chief propagandists at Fox, were seated on the bus too. And you know what? After all their attacks on me during their prime-time “state TV” programs, they didn’t say a word to me. You’d think they would have had something to say to my face, but their fauxmacho man bullshit, as it turns out, seems to stop at the doors to the Fox News headquarters.

Can you believe an adult wrote that?

“And you know what?”  Yeah.  He really wrote that … in a book.

So he tweets out his dismay that Tucker and Hannity won’t have him on their shows while including a snippet that accuses them of being propagandists and “state TV.” Golly, Jim. Why won’t the propagandists have you on their shows?!

What a gormless dink.

Hey, Jim.  Maybe Tucker and Hannity didn’t get in your face on the bus because they’re grown men and not snotty little children.  Why on earth would a guy who writes about bemoaning what a dangerous a time it is for him express disappointment that two grown men didn’t get in his face on a bus?

Honestly, this guy’s a prat.

Yeah, it really isn’t the best writing.  For instance, the colon after “I immediately spotted two of my biggest critics” was odd.  If he put a period after “Tucker Carlson and Sean Hannity,” I could understand the use of the colon.  But the colon is followed by another complete sentence. So why have a colon?  Just end the sentence with a period after “I immediately spotted two of my biggest critics.” Then start a whole new sentence. “Tucker Carlson and Sean Hannity, Trump’s chief propagandists at Fox, were seated on the bus too.”

Did the publisher not provide Jim with an editor? I thought that was the benefit of getting paid to write a book for a publisher. They assign you an editor.

Any old how.

Now, let’s read that quoted passage again.  But this time we’ll insert the Dear Diary Meme at the beginning.

Dear Diary,

As I set foot on the bus, I immediately spotted two of my biggest critics: Tucker Carlson and Sean Hannity, Trump’s chief propagandists at Fox, were seated on the bus too. And you know what? After all their attacks on me during their prime-time “state TV” programs, they didn’t say a word to me. You’d think they would have had something to say to my face, but their fauxmacho man bullshit, as it turns out, seems to stop at the doors to the Fox News headquarters.

Totally fits, doesn’t it?

When you put the Dear Diary Meme at the beginning, suddenly his clumsy, narcissistic writing style makes more sense.

Jim also tweeted out this snippet about his run-in with the White House intern over a microphone.  I’m just going to add a Dear Diary to the beginning, because, why not?

Dear Diary,

As anybody who watched the video could plainly see, I did not place my hands on anybody. But being a bad liar, Sanders doubled down and posted another tweet. Sarah, it seemed, was well aware she was being hammered on Twitter for her ridiculous first attempt at smearing me.

Jim reminds me of the nerdy guy who gets teased and, rather than fight back, walks away sullenly in a snit. And as he retreats, he mutters to himself, “You think you’re so tough. Well, you just wait! I’ll get you back if it’s the last thing I do!” Then, later that night, alone in front of his bathroom mirror, Jim finally dreams up the perfect comeback he would have said if he had the courage and quick wit to actually think it up at the time. Then, proud of himself for finally thinking of a comeback long after it would do any good, Jim struts back into his bedroom, pulls out his diary and jots the comeback down.

Honestly, I really think it would have been more appropriate if his book was titled My Enemies List: All the Things I Would Have Said if I Wasn’t Such a Limp-Wristed Prat by Jim Acosta.

    I know both Hannity and Levin have asked Pretty Boy Acosta on their shows and he has refused every time. Also heard that there were more pencils at his book signing than people. Levin read passages from it the other night; it’s all about JIMMY!

    Did you say hello to Tucker and Sean? The door swings both ways. Maybe they’re just tired of your BS and inaccuracies on reporting which you obviously did in the tweet. No wonder everyone avoids you…all you do is report BS.

    Well, anyone that wants to read his book doesn’t have to pay for it. He already tweeted about 80% of it.
