Aw, who’d have thought he’d get stiffed?

Lanny Davis has been renowned the last several years as the “Pat Buchanan of FoxNews“, the Democrat Fox drags out to talk on all manner of things when Joe Lieberman is busy. The key, of course, he actually talks as if he was Pat Buchanan.

But when not undermining Democrats Lanny has had other employment — being the virtual Mouth of Sauron in America for all manner of corporate assholes and international human rights violators willing to pay his fees. Ivory Coast, Pakistan, and Equatorial Guinea to name three of the latter.

Lanny’s Ivory Coast patron is warm and cuddly lover of humanity Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, known even in a continent that included Mubarak, Gaddafi, Gbagbo (Client) and Mugabe as “Africa’s worst dictator”.

It is hard to believe that two such upstanding people as Mr. Davis and Mr. Mbasogo have run into a spot of bother.

Lanny Davis… is suing the Republic of Equatorial Guinea for stiffing him on a legal bill.

I can only assume Mr. Davis will attempt to make up his losses by representing some investment firm and denouncing #OccupyWallStreet as a bunch of dirty hippies for $1,500 an hour.

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 .
