Me, last week, discussing the Larry Sinclair arrest at the National Press Club:
Question: Who will be the first to claim that if you speak out against Obamessiah, you get arrested? The Free Republic or No Quarter?
Via Sullivan, this from NoQuarter (I refuse to link them):
Tonight political prisoner Larry Sinclair is spending his fourth night in the DC Jail, the victim of a Gestapo-style enemies’ list operation carried out just three blocks from the White House last Wednesday afternoon.
Like shooting fish in a barrel. And just because it is so awesome, let’s revisit the Reason recap:
It had been a difficult morning for Sinclair. The Politico’s Ben Smith published a short feature on Sinclair’s 27-year criminal record of fraud and petty crimes; Greta Van Susteren linked the story, and told viewers/readers why she has ignored him. “While the internet is a great communication and educational tool, it is also viral when it comes to smearing people,” she wrote, prompting commenters to call her a cover-up artist and an agent of Barack Obama. It got worse when Sinclair’s lawyer Montgomery Sibley—whose license is currently suspended in D.C. and Florida—showed up in a kilt and told reporters that his above-average endowment made slacks tight and uncomfortable. The Rev. James David Manning, who gained web celebrity in April for a YouTube’d sermon in which he called Obama a “long-legged mack daddy,” sat in the crowd of 50 or so with his family. He didn’t take questions.
That, much like Hunter S. Thompson’s Nixon Obit, never gets old.
