Jeff Gannon On Tony Snow
— Ace

Snow as press secretary; Jeff Gannon risen from the ashes, Phoenix-like, as the forbidden Book of Skelos* foretold he would.

It's a good day to be alive, folks.

Thanks to Dawnsblood.

* Where? No, not Lovecraft per se.

3 It was "Scrolls of Skelos" in the second Conan movie, but the Book of Skelos is a Robert Howard/DnD reference.

4 Are we truly worthy of his appearance?

5 I only hope "Jeff Gannon on Tony Snow" is a figure of speech.

7 Hmmm. Jeff Gannon rising. Like in his personal ad?

I won't go there. I want to. But I won't.

10 "Jeff Gannon On Tony Snow"

I am shocked that alessandra hasn't posted a cut and paste essay about this.

12 Know, O Prince, that between the years when the Gipper swept both heartland and the coastal cities, and the fall of the heirs of Carter, there was an Age undreamed of, when leftist enclaves lay strewn across the land like brown cowpats across a field - Montpelier, Boston, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, Ann Arbor with its furry-legged women and towers of stoner-haunted academe, Chicago with its machine, Seattle that bordered the socialist land of Canada, Manhattan with its heeler-controlled wards, Berkeley whose hippies wore hemp and crystal and beads. But the loudest enclave of the world was Washington D. C., reigning supreme in the clueless East.

Hither came Gannon, the Parnassian, shaven-headed, eagle-eyed, pen in hand, a sleuth, a news-hound, a word-smith, with gigantic melancholies and gigantic mirth, to tread the leftist shills of the Earth under his wingtipped feet.

14 The Book of Skelos turns up from time to time in Conan stories -- it's the Necronomicon of the Hyborian Age. I can't recall if it's in any of the original Robert Howard works, but it's definitely a fixture to the de Camp/Carter pastiches.

15 And verily, the Great Elder God CTHULHU looked down and saw that Repubican Chaos was GOOD, and smiled.
And lo, demoncrats and their minions by the thousands were struck down by the blinding hideousness of HIS toothy visage.

16 didn't they know each other, the Conan guy and Lovecraft?

Posted by: tachyonshuggy at April 27, 2006 04:38 AM (w0dpL)

17 I don't think so, tachyonshuggy. Lovecraft was a New Englander, Howard a Texan. Also, Howard killed himself in, what, 1936?

18 Robert E. Howard (creator of Conan) and H.P. Lovecraft wrote for the Weird Tales pulp magazine around the same time. The two became fast friends until Howard's suicide in his 30's.

19 Y'all would be stunned to read what self-indulgent, preening gym-rats living in the gay ghetto have to say about Jeff Gannon. They would tear off all his skin and eat it if they had the opportunity.

One of the many, many, many innate attributes of Leftists that absolutely disgust me is their shameless hypocrisy about Jeff Gannon in regards to their alleged valuing of privacy and gay rights. Read http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jeff_Gannon and the comments in the "discussion" section with frequent flashbacks to Democrat defenses of Bill Clinton to see the double standard in full bloom.

End rant.

Probably quite a while afterwards, too.

23 Ironic appropriation. Mother's milk since school house rocks became hep. And it whooshes over some heads.

Posted by: at April 27, 2006 10:16 AM (a3KVd)

24 Why would Ace or any of you...give any attention to Gannon?
