John Hayward (Doctor Zero) Buries the Needle on the Excellent-Writing/Analysis Meter Yet Again
HotAir.Com because it makes anyone who ever aspired to great writing and critical thinking turn "Green" with envy to read his work.
One of the reasons the Nanny State has gotten so far in the United States in recent decades is that too many people of common sense have been deterred from seeking to halt and reverse such trend because they deemed it futile to do so. Hayward explains cogent reasons for optimism that passivity enthroned by such sense of futility is being deposed by optimism being revived by those of us who not only have participated, and will continue participating, in 9-12 rallies, tea-party rallies and town-hall rallies but also will participate in the most important "rally" in November, 2010, inside the voting booth.
Not only does John Hayward (Doctor Zero) insightfully recognize this, he has the linguistic skills to explain it in his cogent writing. One quotation from his column, "The Pillars of Apathy," on June 13, 2010, exemplifies his rallying-cry that common-sense will, after all, prevail:
"It will be difficult for the American giant to rise again but history unfolds in the space between difficult and impossible."

Political Satire/Commentary at PoliSat.Com (Editor)
Biography - Jim Wrenn
Jim is a proud descendant of 18th Century criminal exiles from England who swam to the Outer Banks when the British ship taking them to a Georgia penal colony sank in a storm near Cape Hatteras. Having the prescience to prevent their descendants from becoming "TarHeels," they immediately migrated to Virginia, where, within just a few generations they worked their way up into poverty. Jim's grandfather was the first in the family tree to see the distant horizons, but his career was cut short by severe injuries he sustained when a cousin cut down the tree.
After a brief stint in the Amry (ours) following graduation from law school, he began his legal career in the state bureaucracy but was never able to break into the federal bureaucracy. Several years later, he entered the private practice of law and co-founded a small law publishing company. Later, finding the publishing of small laws unstimulating and finding his private practice too private to be lucrative, he began writing political satire/commentary. His greatest vice is taking himself too seriously.
He wrote the definitive books on the Clinton
Era Error: the Clinton Liebrary Book (pre-October, 2000), which he later updated as the Clinton Liebrary Book 2001 Edition to include Election 2000, the post-election shennanigans, and related events through August, 2001. The 2001 edition is the only known literary source that conclusively shows why Bill Clinton pardoned Susan McDougal but not Webster Hubbel. It also presciently contains the Billary/Hillary Dueling Memoirs. At every opportunity he shamelessly promotes his books for orders on-line or by fax at www.ClintonLiebraryBook.Com. He's also the Librarian at the Clinton Liebrary (www.ClintonLiebrary.Com), which owns exclusive rights to Bill Clinton's most famous speech as well as Bill Clinton's comments after revelation of the identity of Deep Throat in 2005.
As an amateur scientist as well as a scientific amateur, he de-bunks the man-is-causing-Global "Warming" theory, and predicts that by the middle of the 21st Century (when he will be safely dead) physicists will discover the obvious flaws in Einstein's Theory of Relativity, which will lead to vastly-faster-than-light travel through polarization of gravity. As a constitutional-law scholar, he's trying to teach those who hold a static, zero-sum-game view of economic and social theories to understand that "property" is not a "thing" but rather is a human right.
Although he regularly teaches Continuing Legal Education courses to lawyers, he's too-often available through he Rubber Chicken Speakers Bureau to speak on politics, satire, etc., at luncheons, dinners, root canals, funerals, etc. His speaking fees are so outrageously high they border on criminal price-gouging, but as a free-market advocate, he defends his fees on the higher moral ground of charging whatever the traffic will bear.
