Quote of the Day (And Bragging Rights)

I'm honored and excited that Charles Pierce of Esquire picked up my story about the deadbeat Orville Seymer, which I had posted on Crooks and Liars (as well as on here).

Pierce's take on Scott Walker, who keeps getting tied up with lowlifes like Seymer, was not only dead on but absolutely priceless:
Both capper and Daniel Bice point out that this deadbeat's organization was central to the political rise of Scott Walker, the goggle-eyed thrice-elected manager of said midwest subsidiary, and also that it has been central to Walker's defense against the stubborn charges that he regularly uses one office to help him get elected to the next one. I swear, I have never seen anyone whose rise to national prominence has been so thickly festooned with small-time, penny-ante grift. It's like nominating a squeegee-man to be Secretary of the Interior.
I would point out that the squeegee-man would have one distinct advantage over Walker - the squeegee-man would know which end of the squeegee is the business end.


  1. And the squeegee-man would actually do something useful for people.

  2. Congrats!

    Pierce is a national treasure.
