The Left Cheek Ass Clown of the Month for May, 2015


As you know, it's always hard to make a selection for the Right and Left Cheek Ass Clowns ... the number of potential candidates is so large as to make it all but impossible to select the cream of the undistinguished crop. And since we're staggering into the 2016 election season and GOP presidential wannabes are scurrying around like cockroaches when the kitchen light comes on in the night, the number is even higher than usual.

But you look to me to make the tough decisions, and I'm stepping up to the challenge!

Dear Readers, I give you

The Left Cheek Ass Clown of the Month
for
May, 2015 


Alex Jones


Mr Jones, through his website infowars.com, is the master of the outrageous conspiracy theory and bizarre leap of logic, and his latest fantasy crusade is the belief that a set of Army maneuvers called JADE HELM scheduled to take place in Texas are simply a cover for a master plan to occupy Texas and enslave the population. You can read a detailed summary of Mr Jones' twisted conspiracy fantasy here ... including the terrifying knowledge that there is actually a member of Congress - the frightening Louie Gohmert (R, TX)* - who is pouring gasoline on the flames Jones has lit, lending the authority of his elected office to the rantings of a very strange man.

For his irresponsible fear-mongering and ignorance of reality, Alex Jones is named our Left Cheek Ass Clown of the Month for May, 2015.

NEW SUBJECT ...

I will be leaving later today to join Agnes in Germany to help settle her father's affairs. We'll be back the evening of June 3rd. During this time, I will almost certainly not have any Internet access, and so won't be able to post this blog every day. I have prepared Cartoon Saturday posts for May 23rd and 30th, Poetry Sunday posts for May 24th and 31st, and a Great Moments in Editing post for May 29th, and have scheduled them to be posted by Blogger on the correct dates. My experience with Blogger's scheduling function has been mixed, so if the posts don't appear, don't despair ... I'll be back and posting again within the next few days after June 3rd.

Have a good day. More thoughts coming ... sooner or later.

Most people would have taken it as an excuse for commerce, not fear.
