Today will hopefully be a landmark day in my life. I may actually get to speak to the Great Robert Stacy McCain and boy, do I have some important questions to ask him. But first, in all fairness, he has finally agreed to share some of his commas with me. Several friends have sent me commas but I've used them all and now I need more (did this sentence need some commas??)
I'm busy compiling a
- Why are you hoarding all the commas? When I spoke earlier with Obama, he assured me that not only was our money to be shared equally, but also the commas. Not only were they to be shared, but the new policy was going to be retroactive which means Stacy's comma bill will be huge. Mine - not so much! Note well: this is not a comma tax but simply a fee.
- Sleep is another big issue. Do you sleep or exist entirely on caffeine and nicotine?
- Is it true that you lock up Smitty every night and feed him only day-old tacos? It has been reported that Smitty's wife was seen wandering down a country road late one night last week plaintively crying out, "Where are you, my love? I know you're in the middle of FMJRA, but I have fresh tacos, not day old. Can't you take a break?
- Is it true that Charles Johnson is really your half brother?
- If true, does that mean his attacks on you are really just a continuation of sibling rivalry that started when he discovered your Mom loved you best?
- Does posting pictures of nubile young women in bikinis really improve your hit counter?
And I like what his friend Moe Lane of RedState had to say:
"I don’t actually want to see newspapers go away, seeing as they’ve got structural advantages on news gathering that I envy. Like actual budgets: when someone like Robert Stacy McCain decides that he’s going to go down to Kentucky and cover the Bill Sparkman murder, he has to shake the tip jar, write a few posts highlighting the issue, and hope that somebody comes through for his expenses. The equivalent NYT editor simply calls up the relevant department and has somebody set it up. The ability to follow stories that easily is a powerful ability; would that the NYT was willing to take advantage of it.Go visit Stacy and read the rest. While you're there you may want to hit the tip jar. His wife (lovely lady) is very worried about the bills.
