The anointed

From Drudge:

Rupert Murdoch has agreed to host a political fundraiser for Hillary Clinton this summer, the FINANCIAL TIMES is reporting!

Murdoch’s surprise decision to raise money for Clinton in July, on behalf of NEWS CORP., parent company of FOXNEWS and the NEW YORK POST, underlines a dramatic turn of relations between Murdoch and Clinton, who in 1998 coined the phrase “vast rightwing conspiracy” to denounce critics of her husband.

Some say the move by Murdoch reflects approval of her Senate career, notes FT’s Caroline Daniel. Others point to Murdoch’s record for picking future national leaders. Last century, he threw over the British conservatism he’d long supported to back longshot Tony Blair. Clinton surprised Washington and media watchers recently by attending a FOX NEWS anniversary party, where she toasted Murdoch.

Political powerbroker and studio head Harvey Weinstein is said to have convinced Hillary that Murdoch could be a friend, not a foe, in her ongoing political maneuvers.

Hillary has now cornered the NY media market, by winning support from the NEW YORK TIMES, NEW YORK DAILY NEWS owner Mort Zuckerman — and now Murdoch and the NY POST.

CNN and Fox will never have me on as a political analyst because there’s not much to discuss when I can correctly call the presidential elections years before the nominating primaries.

The kid is not my son

PC reveals a certain ignorance about pretty much everything I’ve ever written:

He’s your Baby. You people have been shilling for this train-wreck of an administration since the day he was crowned by the Supreme Court. Now that it’s apparent to all but the borderline retarded that Bush and his handlers are both totally incompetent and barely closeted fascists to boot, you are trying to distance yourselves. Sorry, but it won’t work. Bush is the albatross tied around the neck of everyone who voted Republican in 2000, 2002, or 2004. You are guilty of hypocrisy and intellectual dishonesty. Your bio says you are a member of Mensa. Seems they let anyone in these days.

Seeing as I didn’t vote Republican in 2000, 2002, 2004 or nearly every election before that, I fail to see how Dear Jorge could possibly be considered my baby. And considering that I’ve been openly ripping Bush as a globalist tool since 2001, I conclude that the aptly named PC didn’t bother to look before he leaped.

Hee-hee! (spin-and-a-crotch-thrust)

And the winner is….

Eqquus Pallidus, come on down! You are the next participant in the VPFL! Please let us know if you will be fielding your own squad this fall, or if you would like to nominate a general manager to run a team.

His guess of 53,531 was high by only 476. The second edition of War was actually its third printing, it turns out.

And just to set things straight, Wrath was not cut by the publisher. In fact, it survived two general kill reviews, but the delay due to the publisher’s annual reorganizations gave me the opportunity to reclaim the rights to all three, which I did. The Wrath of Angels will be available on December 1 via online orders only; I have no plans to place it in the bookstores. For those curious about the books but not interested in purchasing them, free PDB files of all three books will be made available.
