The Other McCain

"One should either write ruthlessly what one believes to be the truth, or else shut up." — Arthur Koestler

An Unfortunately Busy Day

Posted on | February 17, 2014 | 16 Comments

Readers will please excuse the lack of blogging today. There are busy days I don’t mind, when I am busy doing things I want to do. Then there are busy days when, unfortunately, I am compelled to pay attention to Brett Kimberlin’s dishonest allegations in the Maryland lawsuit Kimberlin v. Walker, et al, in which four co-defendants and myself are being sued for one meellion dollars for telling the truth about Brett Kimberlin. You may ask around among my co-defendants whether I derive any enjoyment from dealing with a plaintiff who was described in 1999 by Slate as “the convicted bomber, habitual liar, and all-around sociopath who claimed to have sold drugs to Dan Quayle.”

Being sued by a lying sociopath is only fun if you have nothing better to do with your time than to refute his lies, and there are many other things I’d rather do. Nevertheless, in honor of George Washington’s birthday, I’ve decided to spend today compiling some research into accessible formats — work which I wish could have been done by someone else, but if you want something done . . .

Anyone interrupting me in this work can expect to get an earful. I have tried to ignore this thing as much as possible, because it makes me angry to think honest law-abiding citizens must condescend to answer the lies of a creature like Brett Kimberlin, who was notorious as a liar before I ever wrote one word about him.

“. . . a world-class liar . . .”
– Amazon.com

“. . . a top-flight con man . . .”
– Publisher’s Weekly

“. . . a fairly typical hustler . . .”
– Library Journal

“. . . a man whose idea of the truth is utterly malleable
. . . a dangerous smooth talker . . .”

– Kirkus Reviews

Knowing that Brett Kimberlin’s dishonesty has been so notorious for so long, perhaps you can understand why it is irritating to have to confront his lies, as though it were insufficient refutation to say, “Of course it is untrue — Brett Kimberlin is a liar.”

So I am compelled to keep working at this today, and ask your patience at the lack of blogging. But there is this bit of news: Nominations for the 2014 Blog Bash Awards are out, and my reporting on the Kaitlyn Hunt case is nominated.

And now, back to the Siberian salt mines . . .

    I hope that you fellows not only win the suits, but that the judges begin the process to take this tool of harassment away from the guy who is the very textbook definition of a “vexatious” or “tortious” litigant.

    I will note that George Washington’s birthday remains the 22nd, no matter what day federal workers decide to lay about at home instead of in the office. We can celebrate it then!

    Uh, I had something to say here, but then thought better of it. Tongue-biting makes me irritable, too.

    I am sorry you have to deal with this crap.

    If it helps any, Stacy, we know you’re doing it partially for the rest of us.

    Think this blog post will be cut out by BK and BS for mutual enjoyment.

    If they get Rauhauser in on it, they can have a circle jerk (like those three need an excuse for that).

    Oh c’mon! I just opened the lo mein! Blech

    It’s not so much what day the federal workers (not to mention, school teachers, bankers, and others) “decide to lay about at home instead of in the office”, but when Congress sets the calendar.

    So, for what little it’s worth, please aim your well deserved ire at Capital Hill, thankyouverymuch. Just sayin’, is all.
