Oh blessed right-winger that isn’t so very right-wing

There’s nothing our beltway “reasonable men and women” love more than a conservative a-hole they can praise because he (it’s almost always a he) isn’t an EXTREEEEEEEEEEME conservative a-hole.

They are surely the most patriotic concern trolls of all. From Tom Friedman’s infatuation with David Walker; to David Brooks love affair with straw-men in the mythical heartland; to Bob Kerry’s strangely unrequited affair with Bob Kerry — nobody gets favorable media coverage like the self-proclaimed non-moderate moderate [“Nobody puts Bobo in the corner“].

So how could we forget Alan Simpson? He was last seen trying to gut social security while saying something stupid for the sake of maintaining gigantic military spending (not 310 million teats just one gigantic one). All with the blessings of a President who buys into the same nonsense…at best.

He must have missed the limelight some, because he’s back:

“I know Santorum, I served with him,” he said. “He is rigid and a homophobic. He believes that gays and lesbians, he mentioned in an interview in 2003, about bestiality, and gays and lesbians. I think that’s disgusting,” said Simpson.

All true. And Alan Simpson knows disgusting statements. Look for them on his coming round of Sunday chat shows…oh how he misses them.

In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
