before last november's election, i posted an exposé on right-wing blogger sir hailstone, detailing some of the libelous, ridiculous trash he was posting, and along the way discovering that he was in fact a volunteer for eric dickerson's congressional campaign.
a few days after the election, he deleted his blog, and i just figured he would vanish into the ether after that, perhaps even disappearing from the net for awhile so that his connection to dickerson would be more difficult to trace.
but i was wrong. hailstone continued commenting over at advance indiana, and within a few weeks, hailstone started his blog back up. of course, he never reinstated any of his pre-election posts, which could be considered suspicious. (is there something in those old posts he's trying to hide?)
anyway, fast-forward to today, when i see on tdw what hailstone has been up to lately: posting a reward for "verifiable dirt" on "the tdw bitch" (because "that broad needs to go down and go down hard"... sexual connotation most likely unintentional, possibly freudian).
now that's a class act. misogynistic, threatening, and downright absurd (he posts a pic of a hammer and sickle, because you know all liberals are commie pinkos). it's unsurprising that he has received no tips, because if there is any dirt out there worth having on jen wagner (the woman behind tdw, which is easily the state's biggest and most important blog), i imagine the state GOP has already had it for some time now. it's hard to tell whether he thought he could actually accomplish something or whether it was just the sort of revenge fantasy that typifies much of the right-wing blogosphere. (after all, just a couple days earlier, he had posted a "$250 reward" for a "viable GOP candidate that has a good chance of knocking off Mayor Bart", and it's pretty clear that ain't gonna happen, either.¶
