Empress of Outer Space Orly Taitz Has New Senate Campaign Ad (VIDEO)

by Kirsten Boyd Johnson

Or is that secretly Newt Gingrich in there?

Yes, friends, your beloved election girlfriend and California GOP candidate for U.S. Senate Orly Taitz has finally found the time don a suit of medieval armor, sit down with a tank of nitrous oxide pilfered from the dental office supply closet along with one hundred cigarettes and then take alternating puffs on each until she came up with her very own campaign video. You must now watch it.

WAIT first here is a preview, or more of a WARNING, that Dianne Feinstein will jump out at you like a squirrely hobbit.

We won’t tell you when! Now here is the campaign ad:

Is this perhaps a new record for most themes covered in a single campaign ad? The California state budget crisis is secretly the fault of California’s representatives in Washington; Communism; the Holocaust; Constitution rape; illee-gals; Orly is lonely; Constitution rape; and also too, she is the “Energizer bunny on steroids” according to the wheezing noises in the audio track, gross. Oh dear we are giggling, it’s like Orly Taitz has found out how to make the laughing gas contagious through the computer screen, it is MAGIC. [YouTube]

Orly Taitz: Dentist, Lawyer, Realtor, Knight of the Round Table, Energizer Bunny.

V572 Is this him? May 15, 2012 at 6:25 pm

If you sue her for dental malpractice she'll slap a lien on your house and sell it out from under you.

Boojum May 15, 2012 at 6:26 pm

And hit you with a sword.

12X34X May 23, 2012 at 12:11 am

She could also represent you in court in your case against her.

Man I'm all for chicks in Medieval knight outfits, it even makes Orly look slightly fuckable so one can see there is hope!

Fare la Volpe May 15, 2012 at 7:26 pm

Then you'll like this: http://womenfighters.tumblr.com/

There's something insanely sexy about a woman who doesn't have to prove that she's sexy. And also kicks ass.

criminogenic May 15, 2012 at 7:43 pm

very nice, I think the Bustier/chick armor was the only good thing to come out of the Medieval period.

FraAnima May 15, 2012 at 6:21 pm

'tis but a scratch. Come on, ya pansy. I'll bite your legs off.

And more emotionally volatile, thanks to all the steroids.

Fukui-sanRadioBarb May 15, 2012 at 6:36 pm

I'll say it: I bet she's cracking in bed.

You'd have to give a false name and phone number, of course.

Chichikovovich May 15, 2012 at 8:28 pm

Don't have any illusions. Before you are out of bed she will have implanted a tracking device in your butt cheek. And you will think it was a playful love nip…..

Negropolis May 15, 2012 at 9:44 pm

Yes, I bet she cracks open up the skulls of her lovers when she's through with them, and scoops out the brains.

thatsitfortheother1 May 16, 2012 at 4:37 am

Then, technically, she would have some.

Butch_Wagstaff May 15, 2012 at 10:16 pm

Yeah, she strikes me as the stalker-like type.

Ann_ObeyMe_Money May 16, 2012 at 3:36 am

According to papers filed with the court by her former lawyer's associate, the lawyer certainly thought so. He did all her legal work for free (not that that's any recommendation), and had plenty to say about Orly's kinky bedroom persona.

Butch_Wagstaff May 15, 2012 at 10:23 pm

Well she does march to a (way) different drum.

Ann_ObeyMe_Money May 16, 2012 at 3:37 am

I bleev it's made of the skins of her former lovers, stretched over a frame of their bones.

sewollef May 16, 2012 at 8:24 am

Lampshades. I believe she makes lampshades out of 'em. It's to cope with her monstrous Stockholm syndrome.

Ann_ObeyMe_Money May 16, 2012 at 1:40 pm

Oh, ow, dood.

mormos May 15, 2012 at 6:21 pm

That has to be copyright infringement

also, Orly Taitz is clearly a communist spy come to steal our freedums

I'd click on the clickie, if I clicked on clickies, but fool me once, etc. won't get fooled again, also.

Designer_Rants May 15, 2012 at 7:13 pm

I clicked the clicky, for a few seconds. I learned that Feinstein is incapable of taking a bad photo, or Oily Taintz was just too lazy to find one.

Ann_ObeyMe_Money May 16, 2012 at 3:38 am

I've learned NOT to click on any Wonketz linkies after hours sobbing into my pillow as a result of foolish clickies.

I think the narrator is taking hits off her oxygen tank between sentences.

smokefilledroommate May 15, 2012 at 7:25 pm

I think she has a bong in one hand, O2 tank in the other.

DemmeFatale May 15, 2012 at 7:41 pm

Really.
Her voice just screams: emphysema.

Butch_Wagstaff May 15, 2012 at 11:08 pm

I didn't watch the video so I didn't hear the audio but I'm sure there was some spit flying out.

Dashboard Buddha May 15, 2012 at 7:54 pm

Should have gone the extra expense and got Dennis Hopper.

Chet Kincaid May 15, 2012 at 11:13 pm

Oh, I think Hopper's fee is impossibly high, since about May 29, 2010.

Dashboard Buddha May 15, 2012 at 11:29 pm

Nothing is certain until he presents the death certificate.

not that Radio May 16, 2012 at 8:34 am

You laugh, but I actually had to work with a VO guy like that. Apparently, aside from the wheezing, clicking and hissing, his voice was golden. It was up to me to restore it to a human-sounding car dealer commercial when he was done.

Lascauxcaveman May 15, 2012 at 7:22 pm

Could use a spell check, too.

"depravation" Lol.

She's just one letter away from a shout out to my favorite Debbie Harry solo album.

Butch_Wagstaff May 15, 2012 at 11:14 pm

I had that album and really liked it.
I always loved Blondie as a group but never thought she got her props for her solo stuff.

Sharkey May 15, 2012 at 8:20 pm

Are we sure that isn't actually Orly herself?

Or is it one of you Wonkaderos?

IS IT?

smokefilledroommate May 15, 2012 at 8:24 pm

Unless Orly traded her accent for a suppressed rural PA one.

MilwaukeeKent May 15, 2012 at 9:18 pm

Really, the audio sounds like it was sent over a cellphone.

smokefilledroommate May 15, 2012 at 11:05 pm

Haha– a 'jitter'bug. (Haha, terrible nerd humor).

Buckminster May 15, 2012 at 9:53 pm

As a person who worked in TV and radio prod during the last 30 years, this is a piece of crap. Fire everyone involved, including the writer.

Oh, I guess she wrote and narrated herself. Shoot, fire everyone.

Chet Kincaid May 16, 2012 at 12:38 am

You don't have to work in the industry to identify which pipe flushed that thing out of the building.

Her hair looks like it was styled and colored at the Farmer's Market by a drunken one- legged midget on a stepladder.

Boojum May 15, 2012 at 6:27 pm

You say that like it's a bad thing.

Designer_Rants May 15, 2012 at 7:16 pm

Some of my best friends are drunken one-legged midget hair stylists who work at farmers' markets.

Barb May 15, 2012 at 8:19 pm

I sincerely apologize for my insensitive behavior. LOL

Chichikovovich May 15, 2012 at 8:31 pm

You mean: "If anyone was offended I sincerely apologize (etc.)".

And you might also want to drop the "sincerely", because that sounds too sincere.

tessiee May 15, 2012 at 8:48 pm

Or at Supercuts.

Designer_Rants May 15, 2012 at 10:38 pm

Some of my best friends own Supercuts.

Callyson May 15, 2012 at 6:25 pm

The narrator sounds like the person who has emphysema in the anti – tobacco public service ads…

BlueStateLibel May 15, 2012 at 6:25 pm

That voice sounds like she was wearing a housedress and just smoked a carton of Marlboros. Give me some sweet, smooth Barry please to get the horrible taste out of my ears.

Ann_ObeyMe_Money May 16, 2012 at 3:44 am

Another reason Barry is guaranteed a win if the slackers among us get out there and vote. What a voice! I could listen to him all fucking day.

BaldarTFlagass May 15, 2012 at 6:25 pm

How does she go to the bathroom in that iron suit?

Boojum May 15, 2012 at 6:28 pm

She stands on her head, so the pee runs out her eye holes.

starfanglednut May 15, 2012 at 6:32 pm

Oh, you are bad.

tessiee May 15, 2012 at 11:18 pm

I upfisted, but I want you to know that I wasn't entirely happy about it.

Boojum May 16, 2012 at 7:17 am

You are only sad because you can easily imagine it being true.

smokefilledroommate May 16, 2012 at 7:25 am

I heartily lol'd at that when I first saw it. Now I think I'm missing something.

smokefilledroommate May 15, 2012 at 6:36 pm

She just patented the OrlyCan® Imaginary Political Warrior Iron Suit Waste Pan. She is so accomplished.

dadanarchist May 15, 2012 at 6:56 pm

Mr. Peabody installed an interdimensional vortex that one time they almost caught Moose and Squirrel….

I think I'm confusing my cartoon characters…

Rotundo_ May 15, 2012 at 7:16 pm

Rust never sleeps, judging by how loony Orly is, I suspect she probably doesn't either. Just clanks up and down her bungalow in armor, pissing away and muttering in Russian for hours and hours.

Lionel[redacted]Esq May 15, 2012 at 8:13 pm

In days of old when knights were bold
and toilets weren't invented,
they laid their load upon the road
and walked away contented !

smokefilledroommate May 15, 2012 at 8:31 pm

Now I have a mental image of Orly walking around L.A. in chainmail taking dumps in the middle of the street.

LetUsBray May 15, 2012 at 9:04 pm

I thought traffic was even worse than usual lately. Stupid pedestrian right of way laws.

tessiee May 15, 2012 at 8:50 pm

"How does she go to the bathroom in that iron suit?"

Well, if she goes to the bathroom IN it, it must be pretty rusty by now…
And pretty stinky…
So I'm guessing she takes off at least the bottom part.

Designer_Rants May 15, 2012 at 10:55 pm

Trapdoor?

I saw that too. Not sure if it is Orly that is fixated (not wet and tight enough?) for placing it, or I am for noticing it. In any case tres amusent.

I hope Californians send Orly Taitz to Washington. Specifically to St. Elizabeth's.

I seen neither rom nor com in that scenario. Just a lot of puking.

criminogenic May 15, 2012 at 7:27 pm

yeah but then Barry is driven to the gay.

Dashboard Buddha May 15, 2012 at 7:58 pm

Barry – "Please…I wouldn't fuck her with Boehner's dick."

tessiee May 15, 2012 at 8:52 pm

yeah, but Boehner would.

Their loving making would last 30 minutes. 5 minutes of actual sex (and I'm being charitable here) followed by 25 minutes of crying.—

Obviously Oily attended a "Facts are optional" law school.

sullivanst May 15, 2012 at 6:43 pm

Also an "any knowledge of the law is optional" and "having the first clue how to argue a point is optional" school. I mean, have you read any of her briefs or transcripts of oral arguments?

Lionel[redacted]Esq May 15, 2012 at 7:00 pm

Actually, any good law school follows that philosophy.

emmelemm May 15, 2012 at 7:22 pm

Yes, as in, "It's not whether he did it or not, it's what we can prove." Facts ARE optional.

True. But there's a difference between instilling reasonable doubt and just plain rectum derived statistics.

You can major in "Creation Law" at Liberty U.

iburl May 15, 2012 at 6:32 pm

Holocaust talk then "Orly escaped the bloodshed to come to America"

What bloodshed is this? She emigrated in 1981. I guess that would have been that "bloodshed" of not having access to Journey's "Escape" album.

How do we know this nut is not a soviet spy? Mitt Romney says that the Soviet Union is our #1 foe!

"Circulating"? You mean on her broom or using her bat-like wings?

Buckminster May 15, 2012 at 11:28 pm

So much win in just 4 minutes.

She kicks off discussing state budget issues that have absolutely no fucking thing whatsoever to do with the Federal Congressional Delegation she is so desperately seeking to join.

I like that she clearly identifies herself as the Fox candidate, by totally ripping off their little "we made this" movie logo/animation thingy.

I love that she provides so much material to link mainstream Republicanism.

The voice is weird in a funny way

And of course she is, as always, hilarious.

Our political system is so goddamned fucked. Seriously, in California you have Oily Taint running against Dianne Feinstein, who's basically Joe Lieberman in drag (and have you ever seen the two of them together before). Any time some total piece of shit piece of civil liberties raping legislation comes down the pike that twat Feinstein is all over it. So you have the choice in California between a candidate who's completely and totally fucking insane and one who's incredibly fucking corrupt and every bit as adept at sucking the last drop of jism out of J-street cocks as any Republican.

SEN. Dianne Feinstein has resigned from the Military Construction Appropriations subcommittee. As previously and extensively reviewed in these pages, Feinstein was chairperson and ranking member of MILCON for six years, during which time she had a conflict of interest due to her husband Richard C. Blum's ownership of two major defense contractors, who were awarded billions of dollars for military construction projects approved by Feinstein.

This happened in 2007, according to "metroactive news," a Palo Alto Web site and possibly a newspaper, you can't tell. DiFei's hubby's company is URS Corp, which designs and builds stuff throughout our world-wide military empire. MILCON is one of the sweetest committees to be on, because you get to extract favors in exchange for lavishing federal $$ in various locations with almost no oversight: "And you get a $45 million barracks. And you get a $100M airfield," etc. A friend who worked on congressional staff told me that the meeting where MILCON projects were allocated installation-by-installation was the one and only meeting no staff members were ever allowed to attend. Apparently the horse-trading was so fierce that the principals feared their staff members would lose respect, ha ha.

Isn't it funny that she could get caught with her hand in the till like that and nothing happened? Maybe I can retract the absentee ballot I sent in today and change it to Orly.

Wile E. Quixote May 16, 2012 at 1:29 pm

"Could be worse" is such an incredibly stupid argument. I mean it's not even an argument as much as it is just stupidly running your mouth. If someone pointed out that the Nazis murdered thousands of people at Dachau and that it was a horrible and awful place would you come back and reply "Could be worse, They killed more at Treblinka, Auschwitz, Bergen/Belsen and Birkenau. Need I go on?" The fact that Marco Rubio, Rand Paul James Cornyn and a whole bunch of other senators are bigger pieces of shit than Dianne Feinstein does nothing to reduce the fact that Dianne Feinstein is a hugely corrupt piece of shit, yeah, she's a pro-choice piece of shit, but that's about the only thing she has going for her. She's the west coast's answer to Joe Lieberman.

I think that move was brilliant on his part. Brings out all the rage-filled crazy even more in the GOP & shows people how nuts the party has become since he was elected.
And I don't think for the minute Obama made the statement because of any pressure from what Biden said but that's how the media decided to spin it.
They say this could possibly hurt Obama possibility of reelection. Personally, I think that's bullshit. The polling on the issue is very close but most of those polled don't seem to give a shit if gays had the right to marry.

hey i need wonkette help please.

my Original BFF is marrying his long time partner in NY (bryant park) this sat and i need a quote. i'm doing a reading of their choosing (this is because i am An Actor so i can read Outloud) but then! he off-handedly said: 'and if you want to add something that would be great'.

i am not prepared.

he will expect shakespeare from me, but i am unconvinced.

please weigh in my brilliant commentators…

V572 Is this him? May 15, 2012 at 9:41 pm

Here you go.

When, in disgrace with fortune and men's eyes,
I all alone beweep my outcast state
And trouble deaf heaven with my bootless cries
And look upon myself and curse my fate,
Wishing me like to one more rich in hope,
Featured like him, like him with friends possess'd,
Desiring this man's art and that man's scope,
With what I most enjoy contented least;
Yet in these thoughts myself almost despising,
Haply I think on thee, and then my state,
Like to the lark at break of day arising
From sullen earth, sings hymns at heaven's gate;
For thy sweet love remember'd such wealth brings
That then I scorn to change my state with kings.

The majesty of that last line, ten words in iambic pentameter that hit home like hammer blows.

That's number 29. The 'speare did hundreds of these damn things, each one more astonishing than the last. John Donne's "A Valediction Forbidding Mourning" is wonderful too, but a bit too long for people to follow.

fuflans May 16, 2012 at 12:06 pm

this is a good one. i was / am considering it. but! i think it might almost be too romantic for what they seem to be saying. they've been together for like 17 years and are slightly more restrained in their public readings.

but it's tots on my short list.

thank you!

Chichikovovich May 15, 2012 at 9:51 pm

What is he/they like? There's standard, familiar stuff like Shakespeare's Sonnet 116. ("Let me not to the marriage of true minds admit impediments…") which is a little clichéd, but maybe they will find it reassuring. Some people are comforted by the old standbys at such a time. (It's also gender-neutral if this is a gay wedding.)

If it's a more avant-garde group (including the parents, if any are attending) you might try Michael Ontdaaje's The Cinammon Peeler. Beautiful language, and a compelling motif of embracing your lover and becoming permeated with him/her. (Her, in this case – it is explicitly to a woman.) But it is kind of racy for most crowds, and maybe a little stranger than you want.

What kind of thing are you looking for?

fuflans May 15, 2012 at 11:56 pm

no 116 is too, well, you know…

they are gay but we are actors (and are far more liberal). i do mostly shakespeare (which is why they expect shakespeare – but nothing is really popping).

i was thinking a a milne or henry vaughan or yeats or ts eliot, but they have a fairly dense anne morrow lindbergh piece (which i'm reading) and i don't want to undercut.

i am baffled.

Chichikovovich May 16, 2012 at 12:34 am

OK – I'll sleep on't and if anything comes to me I'll pass it on. Yeats is always good. You might also rummage around the metaphysical poets – they have some good stuff and it will have that old-fashioned feel if no Shakespeare suggests itself.

C_R_Eature May 16, 2012 at 6:18 am

Greg Brown. You Drive Me Crazy.

Chichikovovich May 16, 2012 at 11:29 am

Here are a couple thoughts after sleeping it over. Maybe one of them will work for you.

Robert Frost's The Silken Tent is subtle and seductive; if you read this one you might want to change the opening "she" to "he". There is also the line in the middle about a cedar pole that will get unintended chuckles, so this might have to be delivered with an understated wry ironic intonation.

Elizabeth Barrett Browning's
Sonnets from the Portuguese are addressed to a man, so you won't have the problem of finessing inconveniently gendered language, and many of them are really fine. You might want to skim through to see if anything grabs you. XXII, for example, could work, though the "erect and strong" opening may draw chuckles.

If you are looking for someone less well-known, you might try Gwendolyn MacEwen, a poet well-known in Canada but not elsewhere. A seductive, otherworldly sensibility, enchanting language, a fascinating combination of hard-headed focus and fragility. I couldn't find any of her love poetry online, unfortunately, so you'd need to get the two-volume collection (edited by Margaret Atwood and Barry Callaghan) The Poetry of Gwendolyn MacEwen: x where x = "The Early Years (Volume I)" and "The Later Years (Volume 2)" out of the library. I expect the NY Public Library has it, if you are rummaging there. Here's an example of her voice, though it's not a wedding-type poem.
http://www.library.utoronto.ca/canpoetry/macewen/

I'll keep ruminating over the day and pass on anything that may come to me.

fuflans May 16, 2012 at 12:00 pm

oh chicki these are AWESOME.

i really like the Gwendolyn MacEwen. i don't know her but i do LOVE her voice. also, this will help me celebrate becoming a canadian…

thank you so much.

C_R_Eature May 15, 2012 at 9:59 pm

Well, let's see…

e.e.cummings I carry your heart.

Shakspeare's Love Sonnet 116:
Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Admit impediments; love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove:
O, no, it is an ever-fixèd mark,
That looks on tempests and is never shaken;
It is the star to every wand'ring bark,
Whose worth's unknown, although his heighth be taken.
Love's not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
Within his bending sickle's compass come;
Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
But bears it out even to the edge of doom.
If this be error and upon me proved,
I never writ, nor no man ever loved.

There's Yeats, which is nice.

Here's W. H. Auden's Four Quartets, which should have something

I really like Dave Carter and Tracey Grammer's Tanglewood Tree.

Jukesgrrl May 16, 2012 at 12:40 am

Hey Wonketteers, OT but interesting.

Nebraska's primary was today. Interesting thing is the GOP Senate primary (Bob Kerrey won the Dem one with more than 80% of the vote). Republicans had a whole passel of candidates to choose from, among them Attorney General Jon Bruning, the long-time front runner recently endorsed by Santorum; state Treasurer Don Stenberg, backed by Paul and the Club for Growth; and state Sen. Deb Fischer, previously a nobody who was sent to Lincoln to represent the Tea Party fairly recently. She's been trailing all through the polling, until … TA DA … Sarah Palin and the erstwhile First Dood rode into town like Paul Revere (the one who shoots guns, not the real one).

Guess whose now leading? With almost all votes counted, Fischer has 41% with the AG trailing with 35%, and the Club for Growth guy a pathetic also ran (I guess they don't know what CFG is in Nebraska). Lou Sarah and Tawd both recorded robo calls for their Little Debbie, praising her "conservative principles." Apparently the conservative principles of Stenberg were not communicated to the God-fearing voters at all because the $2.1 million spent by Jim DeMint's Senate Conservatives Fund and FreedomWorks for America didn't do him any good.

TD Ameritrade founder and Chicago Cubs owner Joe Ricketts also inserted himself in the race throwing in $200,000 at the last minute, half of which he spent on ads criticizing Bruning and the other half on ads praising Fischer. Her campaign spent a mere $150,000 on ads, so it's pretty obvious that the Palins' last-minute robo calls carried the day for her.

There's no way in hell I'm reading the Snowbilly's Tweets, so I don't know how loudly she's crowing, but I expect her to take full credit for the fact that HER CANDIDATE is the Republican Senate nominee in Nebraska. WHY does Caribou Barbie hate the Club for Growth??? I await an explanation from Greta Van Susteren.

The prez election was totally as expected. A few yahoos still were not voting for the GOP's already-chosen leader and Santorum led that pack. Of course that cute guy with no birf certificate won 100% of the Dem vote. Bob Kerrey got the Democratic nod for Senate with more than 80% of that vote. But he better gird his loins because now he's going up against Wasilla's Finest, who apparently define who is a "real" conservative in the Midwest.

Chichikovovich May 16, 2012 at 1:11 am

Jon Bruning? The guy who compared welfare recipients to raccoons rooting through garbage? Why yes, I believe it was:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uEXAArgtDlo

I don't care who wins the primary, as long as Bruning loses it will be a celebrated event in the Chichikovovich household.

DerrickWildcat May 16, 2012 at 1:46 am

This was rather surprising and really opens the door for Bob Kerrey. While the Republicans have been slinging mud at each other, Kerrey has a very interesting strategy. He's now the voice of bi-partisanship and moderation. His ads have been basically, "Republicans have good ideas and Democrats have good ideas. Let's get together and figure out which works best for all. "
Nebraska is generally Red, (Obama won Lincoln and Omaha) but not insane Christian Warrior Leave me Aloners Red. There is a major and unsettling population shift from rural to urban. Within the next 10-20 years I think Nebraska may be a battleground state.

It was shortly after he had appeared as a guest voice on the Simspons so, naturally, when the time came, because I'm a smart-ass, I complimented him on his fine performance on a cartoon voice-over. All the wealthy dowagers gasped, and he was mortified.

That is the proper reaction. David Mamet wields the Verfremdungseffekt with such skill, that his audiences have reported several physiological reactions after watching his remakes of classics. For example, Mamet's remake of Carousel was reported to have induced its viewers to drive bamboo spikes into their ears.

Just as those anime cartoons in the 90s flashed lights at the epilepsy-inducing frequency, Mamet's diaglog is paced exactly at the emetic frequency.

no, my mom's canadian (montreal and hamilton) and you all changed your citizenship rules a few years back to net some of us scions of expat parents.

so my misspent youth was devoted to mercilessly mocking canadian niceness and i was duly rewarded by having to beg for my mom's birf cert so i could (possibly) get away from the wingtards in my land of birth.

C_R_Eature May 16, 2012 at 7:43 pm

Thank you, that was wonderful and immediately reminded me of This:

It was, nevertheless, a splendid party, decided Frito, as he dodged a flying hamhock. Great pits had been dug simply to accommodate the mountains of scorched flesh the guests threw down their well-muscled throats, and his Uncle Dildo had devised an ingenious series of pipelines to gravity-flow the hundreds of gallons of heady ale into their limitless paunches. Moodily, Frito studied his fellow boggies as they noisily crammed their maws with potato greens and jammed stray bits of greasy flesh into their jackets and coin-purses "for later." Occasionally an overly zealous diner would fall unconscious to the ground, much to the amusement of his fellows, who would take the opportunity to pelt him with garbage. Garbage, that is, that they weren't stowing away "for later."

Now "Gluttonous fool of a Took!" is my new favorite go-to catchphrase.

The blog is run mostly by Patrick and Teresa Nielsen-Hayden, who are a couple of the top editors at Tor Press, the big Science Fiction publishers, with a number of other regular posters, too. I like them very muchly, although they do not brook the sort of freewheeling assholery one finds on Wonkette.

Duly Bookmarked and many thanks! I've had many fine hours with Tor books.

Good that it's moderated closely, too. There's plenty of assholery, freewheeling and otherwise, everywhere else.

Teresa Nielsen Hayden (I see it isn't hyphenated) is also credited with the popularization of dealing with trolls by disemvowelling, which I find nerdily awesome.

I always loved that sort of thing and, now I know where it originated it's doubly awesome. Thanks!

Did you see that Scalsi's got a new book out about Redshirts?

I must have this.
