I Know Irony Is Allegedly Dead

But must it be repeatedly dug up and mutilated like poor Pope Formosus?

The Hall of Famous Missourians in the Missouri State Capitol is filled with the busts of famous people from the Show-Me State… Right-wing radio personality Rush Limbaugh…will soon be joining that esteemed group.

Okay, that’s ridiculous. Could it be any worse? Would I rhetorically ask if it could not?

On Feb. 13, Kansas City, Mo. sculptor E. Spencer Schubert posted on his blog that he was in the process of sculpting busts of Limbaugh and Dred Scott

Didn’t poor Mr. Scott suffer enough indignities the 19th Century?  Must he spend his posterity in the proximity of that posterior?

When it comes to Rusty, like the three ex-Mrs. Limbaughs said, haven’t we all had enough of that?

Although at least this outrage gives me something to focus on so as to not feel like Alberto Gonzales is back.

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 .
