This was crossposted with enhancements from The Blogmocracy just for fun.
Iowahawk had a great post (linked on LGF but shrewdly blocked by Charles Johnson) that included a photo of Anthony Weiner. I thought the Hawk was yanking my crank, and had posted a picture of Janis Ian. Sometimes truth is funnier than fiction. Iowahawk has since doubled down with a post by Dan Rather.
Here’s an excerpt:
Right from the beginning of this Weiner caper, I smelled a rat. And that rat was stinking like a rotten fish. And the brand name of that rat-scented blogfish cologne? Eau de Breitbart #5. Before I could act on that suspicion, I knew I had to talk to the one man who knew the filthy underside of L.A.’s blog row better than any man alive – Charlie Johnson.
Johnson was my old nemesis from too many previous mysteries – and was even responsible for me getting unfairly booted from the force. Once a hepcat stringplucking jazzbo pedal-pusher, word on the street was he had cleaned up his act and turned his back against demon blogs. I looked his name up in the L.A. phonebook, and the only listing read:
THE REV. CHARLES JOHNSON
CHURCH OF THE DIVINE PROGRESSIVE REVELATION
“Do you think it’s him?” asked Weiner.
“God works in mysterious ways,” I said, looking west down Santa Monica Boulevard.
Hawk, you’re hilarious.
