The David Horowitz series: Amaze your friends! Collect the entire set!
Frankly, I never imagined that an innocuous article on right-wing bottom dweller, consummate sleazebucket and pathological liar David Horowitz would have blossomed into such a quest (and, yes, I'm entertaining book offers.)
So, for convenience, I'm collecting the links to both my articles and additional links and will arrange for this piece to remain at the top of the home page for a while, so new articles will be found after this one. If you have other links you think should be added, let me know in the comments sections or by email, at email@example.com.
The CC links:
Part 1: Tranquil opening scene, in which Gandalf visits the Shire and Bilbo plans a birthday party.
Part 2: In which Horowitz learns that snark just doesn't work for him.
Part 3: Why the SAF should be driven off of campus with pitchforks, and how you can help.
Part 4: David Horowitz meets the Rude Pundit, and the result is not pretty.
Part 5: David Horowitz meets Heart of Darkness. The Horowitz! The Horowitz!
Part 6: David Horowitz meets Higher Education, and doesn't recognize it.
Part 7: Media Matters gets their turn, and there's another swift boot to the nads.
Part 8: In which Horowitz defenders learn that Horowitz has a nasty habit of this sort of thing.
Part 9: In which Horowitz meets Google, and Google slaps him silly.
Part 10: In which Dave's claims of "bias" are shredded, and CC challenges readers to defend Dave's integrity.
Part 11: In which CC demonstrates just how jaw-droppingly stupid the folks over at Moonbat Central really are.
