"As liars go," writes the WashPost's Richard Leiby, "he's an 11" -- he being Micah Wright, the faux-Ranger exposed following Leiby’s FOIA request. Kevin Parrott has the last word on one of the creepiest losers to come down the pike in the whole history of creepy loser pike travel.

(Via Jim Treacher, who has a bunch of excellent Wright posts and much else besides.)

UPDATE. In other cartoony news, Ted Rall -- who claims he’s "just a good liberal Democrat" -- continues begging for hate-mail. Perhaps it's the only mail he ever receives.

Rall is begging for an ass-kicking because he needs the publicity. Too many rumors are floating through his paranoid skull about losing his syndication.

Hey, stop talking about Red Tall like that, he'll call it a death threat.

"The only person I know who's defending Micah Wright is Micah Wright."

I've seen a few people defend him in various forums. Usually a variation on, "Yeah, what he did was bad, but is it as bad as Bu$h sending our boys to die for oil???" So, nobody who matters.

I can honestly say that I have never seen any member outside those of the "fringe Left" stoop so low ever before!

Rall, quite simply, is morally deranged.

Perhaps it's the only mail he ever receives.

Well, it's like the bad song says:

Is the loneliest number
That you'll ever do . . . .

I'd have pity on him, but Rall lives in his own special habitat, in which Osama wasn't really behind September 11; in which the Taliban were hiding out in Pakistan the whole time. Doh! on the whole coalition for getting the entirely wrong country! Stupid coalition!

Jim, bring back Puce--if only for an encore. It's past time. Ware are they? Can't see tham!

Morally deranged in the sense that he doesn't have any.

It's becoming clear to me that if I ever meet Ted Rall in some fluke twist of the universe, I *will* have to hit him right in the nose.

Just when I thought Rall couldn't get any lower, he goes and proves me wrong.

Now, Tred is obviously just shilling for attention here, in the pathetic way of little boys who spill ink on the girls they are attracted to. By the way, his latest looks as if it was drawn with boogers. How does he get them so black -- does he snort coal dust?

I say we stop giving these bozos the attention they so desperately need.

Posted by: Rebecca at May 9, 2004 at 01:31 AM

I say we smack him upside the head with a two-by-four. Vermin like Rall need exposure so that ordinary people can see how foul the anti-war Left is.

Rall won't be happy until he's nailed to a cross in the middle of Washington Square. At last he'll get the martyrdom he so obviously craves, as well as the attention he craves even more, as well as... well, I'd rather not go into what other itches he wants scratched, just consult the nearest edition of those volumes penned by Sacher Masoch.

I just spend the past two hours going from one link to another after following your link to Kevin Parrotts site. Well, I had never heard of Micah Wright, but quite honestly, I'm not surpised by any of his lies. I think one of the defining qualities of leftists are that they are natural liars, because like all good neo-coms, they believe the ends justify the means.
