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!"

Matt Drudge is scum

Not a startling revelation, I know. Still, he was at his slimiest on Friday, when he spent the whole day trumpeting a photo that appears to show Barack Obama checking out a girl's ass, when the video clearly shows that's not what he was doing. He had turned to wait for the woman behind him to escort her down the steps. Drudge continued to lewdly promote this nonstory long after it was clear what the video actually showed. The fact that television and print news editors take their cues from this guy is a fucking disgrace.
