‘Big Sexy’ vs. Charles Rangel

Jason Mattera confronts the Most Ethical Democrat Evah, eliciting the carefully argued response: “Why don’t you mind your goddamned business?”

BTW, both Moe Unique Hits and Clever S. Logan are in love with Mattera, whom Logan nicknamed “Big Sexy.” A couple of years ago, I jokingly suggested to Big Sexy that he should marry Moe and, when he refused to act on my suggestion — I was joking, but Moe really was in love with the boy — I sicced Logan on him, so he would know how a broken heart feels. I’m evil like that.

Then I introduced Moe to Logan, and got them both into blogging, and now Big Sexy is mad at me, alleging that I broke the Guy Code. I’m evil like that, too. But really, Jason, man, it’s for your own good. Until you send Logan that box of Godiva chocolates you promised, you’re in that zone of injustice where you’re not allowed to invoke the Guy Code.

UPDATE: Jason Mattera is a racist who hates Asians (as I’m sure Michelle Malkin would gladly testify.)

My brilliant career

Twenty-two years in the newspaper business — a business that appears to be going out of business:

That’s OK, because I’ve got mad skilz on the Internet. Why, I could become a big-time Web consultant — if my daddy was a congressman:

Between 2004 and 2007, Rep. Charles Rangel steered nearly $80,000 in campaign cash to an Internet company run by his son — paying lavishly for a pair of political websites so poorly designed an expert estimated one should have cost no more than $100 to create. . . .
Steven Rangel’s design for his father’s National Leadership PAC site appears to have been slapped together in a hurry, intermittently updated and never spell-checked. An apologetic note near the top of the site warns readers that the page is undergoing “routine maintenace [sic]” and cautions that “much of our content is currently unavailable.” Another button urges visitors to “Give Contribuition [sic].”

If his Nepotism.gov gig falls through, it’s not like a congressman’s son has to go out and get a real private-sector job or anything:

[H]is dad got him a spot as an investigative counsel on the Energy and Commerce Committee now headed by Henry Waxman.

Hopefully, his investigative skills are better than his spelling and HTML skills.

BTW, if any congressman wants to adopt me, I can throw together a campaign blog in about half an hour — but that half-hour will cost you $10,000, Dad.

(CORRECTED: Slight mathematical error. If I was good at math, I would have been an engineer or a banker instead of a journalist.)
