Let us end the year with some schadenfreude

As this year comes to an end — and good riddance am I right? — let us reflect on the one right-wing war enabler that has actually managed to actually lose status with the Village.

Two weeks ago Swopa noted that Judith Miller had gone from being able to say she worked for the New York Times on her byline to saying just that she was a “FoxNews Commentator”.

Actually, it is even better than that:

Now she’s writing — on contract, not full-time — for Newsmax

Oh she can get right on that birth certificate thing.

Early Morning Swim



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 .
