I'm reviving and expanding the series, in hopes of some day putting somewhere where it'll make me some money (though who knows where that will be), and I'm also looking to move on to a seventh profile. I've already done William F. Buckley, George Will, Pat Buchanan, Norman Podhoretz and John McLaughlin; but I'd like to reach out to you, the fickle Skullbucket reader, to help me decide who to profile next.
Who would you like to see as the subject of the next "PROFILES IN BULLSHIT"?
I'm basically trying to go in rough chronological order, starting with the old paleoconservatives, moving into the new class neo-cons, working my way through the Watergate criminals, and ending up with the Reagan-era free marketeers. Once all of the above are done, I'll start on thematic sets:
RADIO BLOWHARDS (Rush Limbaugh, Michael Medved, Michael Savage)
FOX-HOLES (Tony Blankley, Sean Hannity, Bill O'Reilly)
G.O.P. PIN-UPS (Ann Coulter, Laura Ingraham, Michelle Malkin)
PREACHERS (Jerry Falwell, Billy Graham, Pat Robertson)
TV TALKING HEADS (Freddie Barnes, Morton Kondracke, Bob Novak)
SEMI-RESPECTABLE ENTERTAINERS WHO WENT TOTALLY BATSHIT AFTER 9/11 (Stephen Baldwin, James Lileks, Dennis Miller)
WATERGATE/IRAN-CONTRA CRIMINALS (G. Gordon Liddy, James J. Kilpatrick, Oliver North)
LEGACIES (Brent Bozell, Jonah Goldberg, John Podhoretz)
REFUGEES FROM GOVERNMENT (Roger Ailes, Linda Chavez, Paul Craig Roberts)
"INTELLECTUALS" (Thomas Friedman, Victor Davis Hanson, Dennis Prager)
BLOGGERS (Hugh Hewitt, Charles Johnson, Glenn Reynolds)
RISING STARS (Dinesh D'Souza, Rich Lowry, Ben Shapiro)
UNCLE TOMS (Larry Elder, Thomas Sowell, Walter Williams)
GAYPUBLICANS (Tammy Bruce, Andrew Sullivan, Norah Vincent)
ACADEMICS (John Leo, Bill Murchison, Marvin Olasky)
ASSORTED ODDBALLS (John Derbyshire, Ken Hamblin, Michael Ledeen)
THE LUNATIC FRINGE (Mike S. Adams, Doug Giles, Pamela Oshry)
