I Was A George Will Fan
Last night, George Will spoke at Redondo Beach. Here is my flyer:
George Will Fan Site
The most comprehensive site on the
Web for information on America’s
top journalist and pundit. Contains a
complete bibliography and all the
information you need about George Will.
Okay, okay, it isn’t a fan site and there’s no bibliography, but please cut me some slack. I realize it isn’t nice to use deception to get people to the site but I figure the same people are shelling out their hard-earned money ($40 to $50!) to see an operative passing himself off as a journalist. The more people who read things about the pompous ass that one won’t find in the mainstream media, the better. I dressed the part of the type of person who would run a George Will fan site (I was thinking the Philip Seymour Hoffman character in The Big Lebowski). I dressed in a gray Brooks Brothers-type suit, a foulard tie, wing-tips, and a white shirt with a tab collar. I even shaved off my soul patch.
Warning: the first article in my “fan site” is titled “George Will on Sex and Marriage.” I don’t think I’m making any unwarranted assumptions when I make the observation that George Will and sex are topics that don’t mix well. In fact, while I was writing the piece, some unpleasant visuals occurred.
