A little unfinished 2007 business …
I’m not sold on Politico.
[UPDATE, Jan 4: Neither does RedState: "Crack Whores Run The Politico"]
Rolled out by Washington insiders as an attempt to stanch the bleeding of the print media, a sort of internet/print hybrid, they’ve been hungry in this, their first year. Continue reading

We were far too nice. We thought that forgiveness would “bind up the nation’s wounds.”
But here we are, seven score and three years later, and we STILL have to endure this crap, purportedly politely:
Ron Paul is Endorsed by Dixie Daily News

William Kristol is quite beholden to Rupert Murdoch
According to the Huffington Post, as refracted through Editor & Publisher, Bill Kristol is going to be announced as the New York Times’ new “conservative” columnist. This will bring “balance” and undoubtedly show that the NYT is not the liberal media that the Blogosmear and the GOP* (* Greedy Old Pedophiles) claim it to be. Ah, the Doors of Deception™: Continue reading
I wrote this little Christmas story for the year-end meeting of a writers’ group that I attend. It is a short-short story, about 800 words. — HW
Guess Who’s Coming For Christmas?
[note: The story was up for a short holiday time. Since it's "commercial" the special preview period has passed. Look for publication in __________. ]
And, for a special treat, I present The KOPT Radio Theater Players in the 2005 production of “The St. Nick Case,” in wide-spectrum, full color stereo. I wrote, produced and directed. Was broadcast live on December 23, 2005.
Download the .mp3 here. (Right click and “save as”) It’s 20 minutes, 4.4 megs. NOTE: It is a radio play, there are no visuals.
Here’s wishing you Happy Holidays from all of us here at his vorpal sword.
It’s my Christmas, and I’ll cry if I want to …
And, finally, without a “villain” in the “Christmas” censorship that never happened, they declare victory, pretend that the smear of the Oklahoma Attorney General never happened, and try to move more “War” materiél:

Yo! In your FACE, Santa!
Our Story So Far: In parts i. and ii., we watched as an hysterical reporter at the Washington Examiner free newspaper in Washington D. C. reprinted verbatim a press release from the Dean of the law school at Jerry Falwell’s Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia, Continue reading
And for an even bigger donation …
Our Story So Far … In yesterday’s thrilling installment, we learned that the Rightie Blogosmear™ — using their finely honed instincts and keenly developed sense of smell — went into full-on smear mode to attack the Oklahoma Attorney General for supposedly issuing a fatwah against any mention of Christmas at the gigantic learning institution, Southwest Oklahoma State University. But then, “Captain Ed” took an odd moment to “confirm” the attack after making it, and sheepishly retracted the story as false. Continue reading
I would be remiss if I didn’t document Mitt’s inability to apply the Law of Holes*.
[* When you realize you're in a hole, STOP DIGGING.]
Now, realize that there is a difference between lying and mangling. The following is mangling WHILE lying. Continue reading
The dean of Jerry Falwell’s Law School has a nice little charity deal going for him and his wife: Running a 501(c)3 “charitable” group called “Liberty Counsel, Inc.”
I wouldn’t know anything about it, except that yesterday, a big chunk of the Rightie Hateosphere — including the White House’s darling blogger, “Captain” Ed — jumped on a story by the [fake?] online “newspaper” The Examiner that was taken (without any attempt to check facts) from a “Liberty Counsel” press release (as was admitted later on). Continue reading
could be AP, could be Reuters
Welcome to Mitt’s world. It’s a rich fantasy life, kind of like Thurber’s “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty” but our Mitty’s world is peopled with the grotesques* of politics. [* Just imagine animated gargoyles, like that crappy cartoon of several years back.] Continue reading
For those of you who’ve been comatose for the past eight years, let me bring you up to speed. George W. Bush, Democrats claimed, would cut taxes for his billionaire buddies at your expense, squander the surplus, wreck education and put things like, oh, environmental and work safety — you know, like mine safety — enforcement in the hands of the polluters and industry, like he’d done in Texas.
