  1. Suggestion:

    1. At the least, put it in bold: CONVENTION2008. And, for extra credit, have someone make up a logo like the one here.

    2. Keep Weigel and the others on a short leash. If you don’t watch out, they’ll start asking those there real questions designed to point out flaws in their policies. These are real reporters, remember. They aren’t just establishment hacks who’ll offer the same coverage as everyone else.

  2. Lonewacko —

    Does it ever bother you that you’re alone…and a wacko?

  3. Let’s hope it rains in Mile High Stadium.

  4. I think Kirk Lazarus’ advice to “never go Full Retard” is even more appropriate for LoneNimrod; but is unfortunately too late.

  5. Epi, you may have prematurely blown that one, but there’s still:

    “A nutless monkey could do your job. Now, go get drunk and take credit for what I’ve done.”

    Also appropriate, I think.

  6. Let’s hope it rains in Mile High Stadium.

    Why?

  7. I think Kirk Lazarus’ advice to “never go Full Retard” is even more appropriate for LoneNimrod

    “Prepare for Lightspeed!”

    “Nah, too slow.”

    “Lightspeed too slow?”

    “Prepare for…Ludicrous Speed.”

    “Are you sure, sir? It’s very dangerous…”

    “What’s the matter, Colonel Sanders? Chicken?

  8. A nutless monkey could do your job. Now, go get drunk and take credit for what I’ve done.

    Maybe LoneGoofball is just a dude playing a dude disguised as another dude.

    What’s the matter, Colonel Sanders? Chicken?

    Unless you are being a smartass you’re the second person to conflate the Tropic Thunder joke into a Spaceballs joke. This means something…but what, I have no idea.

  9. I’m being a smartass.

  10. “Let’s hope it rains in Mile High Stadium.

    Why?”

    The nutroot conspiracy threories on how Dick Cheney controls the weather would be entertaining as hell.

  11. Maybe LoneGoofball is just a dude playing a dude disguised as another dude.

    At the prospect of the LW being either humorous or legitimate:

    Mother Nature just pissed her pants, dude.

  12. At the prospect of the LW being either humorous or legitimate

    Hey, LoneNutsack could be being played by a performance artist to discredit the anti-immigration position; or just for shits and giggles. He’s the Tony Clifton of anti-immigration grandstanding!

  13. He’s the Tony Clifton of anti-immigration grandstanding!

    You’re just angling for a spot as one of the LoneWacko-ettes on the inevitable tour.

  14. In addition to asking real questions, here’s another thing Reason staffers are afraid of doing. Libruhtarian on!

  15. Epi is a groupie.

  16. In addition to asking real questions, here’s another thing Reason staffers are afraid of doing.

    The Lonewacko can’t even *climb mountains* without using protection. And a helping hand.

    That’s what I got out of that link, anyway.

  17. I love that idea, Epi.
    But if Wacko is Tony Clifton, who is his Andy Kaufman?

  18. Yey, more political hoopla, we just love political hooopla dont we sheeple?

    Well, I do have great legs.

    Epi is a groupie.

    I’ll do anything–anything–to get backstage at a LW event.

    But if Wacko is Tony Clifton, who is his Andy Kaufman?

    Cesar? But wouldn’t that mean that LW is Bob Zmuda?

  20. RockClimbing without a rope and a partner? If only every libruhtarian would do that. No, seriously. I want every libruhtarian to go do that ASAP*. If going up is too difficult for the average comic book reader, then just rappel down, just but without the rope*.

    * I am only joking. Do not attempt either.

  21. RockClimbing without a rope and a partner?

    Lonewacko shows himself here to be completely oblivious to an insult built on obvious sexual innuendo, and caps it off with a superfluous PSA.

    GoodJob, MasterDebater!

  22. Well, I do have great legs.

    Just keep the especially provocative stuff off your MySpace, ok, Epi?

  23. Just keep the especially provocative stuff off your MySpace, ok, Epi?

    Will I be asking to be raped if I don’t?

  24. Will I be asking to be raped if I don’t?

    Shame on you for even asking! Don’t make me send Officer Gay for a little one-on-one presentation.

  25. …completely oblivious to an… obvious sexual innuendo

    Something tells me the LW doesn’t hear a lot of those.

  26. Something tells me the LW doesn’t hear a lot of those.

    You just gave me an image of LW as a James Joyce-like figure in A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man but instead of being a seminary student visiting prostitutes he’s a border patrol agent visiting donkey shows in Tijuana.

    These are the things I do with my education.

  27. …instead of being a seminary student visiting prostitutes he’s a border patrol agent visiting donkey shows in Tijuana.

    Catholic shame is second only to the shame of a burro-loving nativist.
