Hornswaggler | The culture, the humor, a bit of the sports, not so much the politics, and the workplace distraction

Hornswaggle is an alternate spelling of hornswoggle, an archaic word that means to bamboozle or hoodwink. I take my pronunciation from the late Harvey Korman in "Blazing Saddles" --

"I want rustlers, cutthroats, murderers, bounty hunters, desperados, mugs, pugs, thugs, nitwits, halfwits, dimwits, vipers, snipers, conmen, Indian agents, Mexican bandits, muggers, buggerers, bushwhackers, hornswagglers, horse thieves, bull dykes, train robbers, bank robbers, ass kickers, shit kickers and Methodists!"

Goldberg and Murray

It would be kind of great if Bill Murray would tell an interviewer that he thinks Jonah Goldberg has oatmeal for brains, thus ruining the enjoyment the author of "Liberal Fascism" gets from "Groundhog Day" and other Murray movies. Sort of like how Sean Hannity, if he ever was a Monty Python fan, which I doubt, probably isn't one now.

On a related note, a bit odd how the leading conservative magazine is posting clips from "Meatballs" as a motivational device on Election Day. Then again, if you listen to John Tierney, which I don't recommend, you'd know that a new study, padded with a couple interviews, indicates conservatives are happier and have better senses of humor than liberals.
