Blue Meme veterans will perhaps remember the vitriol I heaped on wingut philosopher king Victor Davis Hanson. There are others out there with perhaps more impressive records of wrongheadedness, but not any with his veneer of academic sobriety.

Well, Mr. "They Hate us for Who We Are" is in the news, facing the consequences of his absurdity. And what happens to VDH for his epic, tragic, wrongness?

Recall how George "Slam Dunk" Tenet, Paul "What, me worry?" Bremer, and General Tommy "Tommy" Franks were punished for creating the mess that VDH has so consistently been wrong about:

So you can probably guess that extraordinary rendition, however appropriate, is not in Vic's immediate future:

The National Humanities Medal is designed to honor those who “deepen” and “broaden” the humanities in America:

The National Humanities Medal, inaugurated in 1997, honors individuals or groups whose work has deepened the nation’s understanding of the humanities, broadened our citizens’ engagement with the humanities, or helped preserve and expand Americans’ access to important resources in the humanities.

In his presentation of the award, Bush complimented Hanson on his “scholarship” and “wisdom”:

Victor Davis Hanson for his scholarship on civilizations past and present. He has cultivated the fields of history and brought forth an abundant harvest of wisdom for our times.

The Stanford Daily helpfully notes that previous recipients of the same award from the First Man of Letters have included fellow Hoover Institutionalized Thomas Sowell.

Get as many people to make these phone calls.

Call GOP contributor and war contractor General Electric Corporation at 203 373 2211 and ask for the public relations department. Tell the person in public relations that you want the GE CEO to get Bush to end the war in Iraq and then Bush resign with Cheney and until that happens you will not buy any GE products and that you will tell your friends about this.

Call GOP contributor Rite Aid at 1-800-325-3737 and tell the person to get the CEO to get the GOP to enact HR 676 Single payer health care and repeal Medicare Part D and place the drug benefit in Medicare Part B covering 80% of drugs with no extra premiums, no extra deductibles, no means tests, no coverage gaps, and remove the means test for Medicare Part B and until that happens, you won't buy ANYTHING from Rite Aid.

Call GOP contributor Wendy's restaurants at 614 764-3553 and Tell the person in public relations that you want their CEO to get the GOP to help enact a $10/HR MIN. WAGE into law and until this happens you will not go to a Wendy's Restaurant.

I have started a new political party called the Liberal Democratic Party of the United States. You can read the web page at and you will find that this party works differently from other political parties. Take a look and help enact progressive legislation and end the war where you work as a legislator and you vote on legislation.

Why are you jealous of VDH?

If offered the "honor," you would surely turn it down and there ain't no way an ethical person is ever recognized at a national level anyway, never mind by the state apparatus. So, what are you upset about?

Need a place to sell your principles? Call any political party, today.
