P-Mac Goes Big Time

Pat McIlheran gets nominated for the Bastiat Prize for Journalism.

A few of you may be familiar with Bastiat's "The Law," which is short and rather sour. It's the kind of thing you read and recall, but not the sort of pamphlet which Big Gummint sorts want laying about.

Anyhoo, McIlheran gets nominated for a prize which:

...celebrates writers whose work cleverly and wittily promotes the institutions of the free society.

(It's that cleverness which drives the Moonbat Lefties bonkers. They don't bother with stomp/screech people like ....Dad29.)

But get a load of the competitors!

Clive Crook

Jonah Goldberg

A. Barton Hinkle

Classy. Like being nominated for a composition prize when the 'other guys' are Rachmaninoff, Mahler, and Debussy.

Maybe Pat will still talk to normal people.

He doesn't drive me bonkers, or others. When he's not making stuff up, we just ignore him ... though, I guess that's a badge of honor of sorts.

And I still like you daddio, even when you are stomping and screeching.

Bill C. came over the other day for my son's birthday. We spoke of you.
