How can we up the wanking…another notch?

On a day where performance artist (Ayn Rand Division) Rand Paul was accused of filing a lawsuit that, true to his record, was plagiarized comes this.

Brent Bozell uses his books and columns to rail against liberal media bias and dishonesty, but he reportedly doesn’t write a word.

Jim Romenesko spoke to some people affiliated with Bozell’s Media Research Center and learned from a former employee that the group’s media analysis director, Tim Graham, writes “almost everything published under [Bozell’s] name.” The former employee also noted that, despite not actually writing any of the content, Bozell still collects 80-90 percent of the profits.

Like Paul, Bozell is someone who decries government affirmative action programs while essentially inheriting his position from daddy.  Unlike Paul, Bozell has done it while wearing the world’s ickiest ginger-beard.

And then, the punchline, on top of the punchline.

The president of Creators Syndicate, which carries the column, told Romenesko that it’s “absolutely false to say that Brent Bozell does not
write his column,” but nevertheless, Bozell and Graham will begin sharing a byline.

That statement had to be accompanied by a sad trombone sound.

Money & Elections In Washington: Pro wrestling, but with more respectable clothes



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 .
