Collectivist "media watchdogs" complain about Issa "witch hunt." My expertise in the matter of wicked witches & the difference between naked & nekkid
My ex-wife's great aunt.
Now, look. I have had more than a passing acquaintance with wicked witches in my life. I was married once before. I saw the movie about her great aunt, The Wicked Witch of the West. I've even run into some off screen.
Once, right after I started in the brokerage office at the truck line CRST, I overheard a conversation between two female co-workers about the upcoming solstice, running nekkid through the woods, and other eagerly anticipated bizarreness.
(Point of information for non-Southerners. Lewis Grizzard's explanation of the distinction between "naked" and "nekkid" -- Naked means you have no clothes. Nekkid means you have no clothes and are up to something.)
Anyway, finally I asked, "What the hell are you two talking about?"
Came the reply from the older one, delivered rather malevolently: "We're wiccan witches. Does that BOTHER you?" (She drew out the word "bother" with special emphasis.)
"Heck no," I answered with a grin, "My God's bigger than yours."
Anyway, so I have some experience when it comes to wicked witches and thus, by extension, a more than average understanding of what a "witch hunt" really is.
Now here is a collectivist complainer about FOX, Darrell Issa and the Gunwalker investigation: "Chris Wallace Helps Further Rep. Darrell Issa’s Fast And Furious Witch Hunt."
As an expert on the subject of wicked witches I can tell you that this is an absolute slander of both FOX's Chris Wallace and Congressman Issa. There IS a wicked witch in the Gunwalker Scandal, but neither of those august gentlemen has had the cojones to go after her as yet.
I refer, of course, to the Secretary of State of the United States of America and, to my knowledge, only one person in the nation so far has had the temerity to identify her and her links to the Gunwalker Scandal, and that is yours truly here in these pages.
So, I urge this hollow-headed collectivist twit to get off their backs. No, if you want to accuse somebody of a real witch hunt, that somebody would be, well, me.
However, I hasten to note that there IS a real wicked witch in this hunt.
And I know something about wicked witches.
