The Real Furious George
We were browsing through the Guardian today, and checked in on the colummn that Kos has been writing there. By and large we haven't been that impressed, since it lacks the bite of his blog, and isn't half as well written as that of Glenn Reynolds, of Instapundit fame. In fact the disparity might be enough to make you believe that the Republican charge that Democrats have become incoherently angry.
So, this week, Markos decides to enlighten us on the origins and uses of the term "Furious George", which he says emerged from out of nowhere to become the perfect epithet for our enraged and simian Commander-In-Chief.
Au contraire, since Gringcorp has finally discovered a use for a dodgy past spent reading the New York Press. Because the NY Press has for several years been carrying the rather scatalogical punk rock observations of one George Tabb. Tabb, a sad old punk in the best sense of the word, was once in an angry punk rock band. The name? Furious George.
Proof positive that bloggers, like the rapt law student readers of Anonymous Lawyer, need to get out more.
