I have neglected to promote posts from the Tip Line in the past few weeks, as events consumed my attention.  If you are not checking out the Tip Line, you are missing a lot of what your fellow commenters are posting.

“Hawkins, Henry! I’m somebody now! Millions of people look at this blog everyday! This is the kind of spontaneous publicity – your name in print – that makes people! I’m in print! Things are going to start happening to me now!”

(Name that paraphrased quote. Winner gets a stale bagel and my 1970s TV Guide collection).

    On your 8 x 10 glossy you send me, I’d like it to read,


    All the best.

    That’s what your comments are.


    Steve Martin in the movie “The Jerk”. Based upon the movie’s script, there are some questions I would ask. But, since you are regaling in your notoriety, I’ll pass for now.

      We have a winner. Bagel and TV Guides on the way.

        Thank you, thank you very much. You all do looove me. Just one question.

        Would it be possible to swap the bagel (just one?) and TV Guides for an appearance on Letterman? I would ever so much like to share with him my “Ten Reasons For Not Calling Romney a ‘Felon'”. If this isn’t possbile, I’ll just keep an eye out for the mail. Thank you.

          Had I the power, you’d be REPLACING Letterman.

          Well, I think I might be able to handle a joke or two. I wouldn’t mind, at all, interviewing some of the guests. And, I’ve been told that, a times, I can be just as much of a smart-a** and just as boring as he is.

          My first show would feature some of the fine folks of LI with their more memorable posts. However, since you’re not able to make it happen and I haven’t won the lottery, we’ll settle for the next best thing: being “feature creatures” of LI which is more interesting and just as fun, well sometimes anyway.

I will try to do some follow up on the king stuff this week and append it to that link

As for my “More waaaaah” link, it’s Democratis pollsters Pat Caddell and Doug Schoen expounding on Caddell’s earlier mainstream-media-has-become-the-enemy-of-the-American-people speech the Professor posted a few days ago.

Megyn Kelly (haven’t seen eye candy like that since O was on the View) interviews the two.

My only question: Caddell and Schoen didn’t feel this way in 2008?

    Unlike Henry Hawkins, LukeHandCool is like Paul Newman … he doesn’t believe in signing his autograph on glossies.

    LukeHandCool (who, as a boy, when a scene from “The Sting” was being filmed on the Santa Monica Pier, witnessed Paul Newman turning down a young lady’s request for an autograph. To his credit, Mr. Newman did it politely and explained to her that he didn’t believe in signing autographs. He saw himself as an actor and not a star, as opposed to Luke, who sees himself as a star and not an actor).

Well made, gut-wrenching video, Henry. Thanks, sort of.

Up the flagpole to see if anybody salutes:

1. The daily videos might get more attention if we could comment on them.

2. The last time the Tip Line reached 3K posts, the material disappeared. IMHO the Tip Line is worth preserving, ideally archived by month.

Henry KISSINGER. Former secretary of state. Current savant of the state of the world. Do not argue with Mr. Kissinger’s know-how. He already knows how.
Middle East horror. Democratic party dissing Jerusalem. DC’s anti-Israel mentality. Obama, busy raising re-election funds, no time for beleaguered Netanyahu. The Oval Office attitude versus the Red Line. Iran’s oath to destroy our only friend in that part of the world.
Reported to me, Henry Kissinger has stated — and I quote the statement word for word: “In 10 years, there will be no more Israel.”
I repeat: “In 10 years, there will be no more Israel.”

This story over at NRO is of course hilarious

Comments section is a riot. MarkW is spot on in his comments. Good Read.

Permanent replacements should be brought in, all conservative writers. That would immediately double their sub base, Lollerskates
