Just take your soiled slacks and retire already

Ron Fournier of the National Journal manages to be more pathetic than Alex Jones over the Boston bombing.

Yeah, it killed like 1/1500th of the people 9/11 did and I have a sneaky suspicion it will not lead to two or even one crippling wars that will kill six-figures of human beings and cost trillions.

But other than that, so much scarier Ron — you are so right.  Good job, good effort.

But then, ol’ Ron has the true soul of a modern newsperson.

Karl Rove exhanged e-mails about Pat Tillman with Associated Press reporter Ron Fournier, under the subject line “H-E-R-O.” In response to Mr. Fournier’s e-mail, Mr. Rove asked, “How does our country continue to produce men and women like this,” to which Mr. Fournier replied, “The Lord creates men and women like this all over the world. But only the great and free countries allow them to flourish. Keep up the fight.”

There’s always another ass to kiss inappropriately whether the pants are wet or not, isn’t there Ron?

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 .
