I have been warned almost since I started blogging that one of these days I would show up on University of Chicago Law School Professor Brian Leiter’s radar and that his world-renowned pettiness and nastiness would be visited upon me.

Oh my how the supporters of Occupy Wall Street cheered when Lech Walesa, hero of the fight against communism in Poland, announced that he would fly to New York to support the Occupy Wall Street movement.

Brent Budowsky at The Hill was ecstatic:

This is really strange.

The first time I heard the term “Firebagger” (a play on you know what) was when Joan Walsh (of Salon.com) and Jane Hamsher (of Firedoglake, hence the “Firebagger” term) had the race card played on them because of their criticisms of Obama.  I even did a Saturday Night...

I’m used to left-wing bloggers distorting what I write, which is why I rarely respond. 

But I was disappointed to read Charles Lemos of MyDD, one of the less crazy of the genre, write the following on Saturday morning:

Maybe this will become the “Hey Ed Rollins, you deal with it” series, after Part 1 regarding the foul Rolling Stone attack on Michele Bachmann went over so well.

A week ago The Guardian reported that Margaret Thatcher was refusing to meet with Sarah Palin, attributing a quote to an “ally” of Thatcher as follows:

Lady Thatcher will not be seeing Sarah Palin. That would be belittling for Margaret. Sarah Palin is nuts.

As with most people, I simply took at face value the popular version that Paul Revere warned that the British were coming, the British were coming.
