Watergate's "Deep Throat" finally revealed– Surprisingly, this one has nothing to do with Linda Lovelace

The former #2 man at the FBI, the now 91-year-old Mark Felt, has been confirmed as having been the legendary “Deep Throat”.

“Deep Throat” was the nickname reporters Woodward and Bernstein gave to their confidential informant who helped expose the Watergate scandal which brought down President Richard Nixon.

The identity of “Deep Throat” was confirmed by Woodward and Bernstein themselves. Rumors as to who was “Deep Throat” ran amok since the story broke in the papers in 1972, and the subsequent detailing in the 1974 bestseller, All the President’s Men.

All the rumors, including an “Editor & Publisher Magazine” poll in February of this year, where readers fingered now Supreme Court Chief Justice William Rehnquist as “Deep Throat”, turned out to be false.

Woodward and Bernstein were lucky. The story told to them by Mark Felt happened to be true. If Felt had been just another “Koran flushed down the toilet at Guantanamo” type of false informant, Woodward and Bernstein would be but footnotes in history, toiling away in cubicles at Newsweek magazine.

Spice Girls snubbed for Live Aid II, and a link to the 2005 Hooters calendar kick off Tuesday morning

Bob Geldof: “Lemme tell ya what I don’t want, what I really don’t want”

Both remaining Spice Girls fans worldwide have been dealt a serious blow. The lead organizer of Live Aid II, Sir Bob Geldof, has brushed up the final lineup, and brushed off the Spice Girls. The organizers of “Live 8”, as it’s being called, said that the Spice Girls didn’t fit in with the serious political message about world poverty.

Who does fit in? Destiny’s Child, Mary J Blige, Eminem, Linkin Park, and more.

Yep, if they’re after political seriousness, they’ve got a lineup that Bill Buckley’s “Firing Line” producers would have been proud of. There should be enough cerebral energy on the stage to power a potato clock.

__________

Now, on to a slightly different topic. A reader responding to my column on the expansion of Hooters Air pointed me in the direction of the 2005 Hooters Calendar. Check out the lungs on Miss August!

A Memorial Day note to the U.S. military

Dear members of the US Military past and present,

Thanks to you and your predecessors, we’re free. Throughout our history, you’ve fought for, and won, independence. You’ve helped put an end to slavery, oppression, genocide and all manner of craziness put forth by every spiral-eyed deranged dictator and tin-pot wanker on the planet.

You can be sent to fight in some of the biggest dung-heap, dirt-bucket and generally scummy areas on the face of the earth – places that make a septic tank look like the Presidential Suite at the Bellagio.

You perform tasks – from the incredibly dangerous to the intolerably mundane – without complaint or plea for recognition.You’re often called upon to take on unhinged nut cases – the aberrant likes of whom may make one long for the stability of Courtney Love – and dive head first into a big bowl of “Crackpot Bouillabaisse” against knee-jerk fascists, totalitarian fist wavers and psychotic zealots– All this is offset by the lousy pay and unfair criticism from Malibu pinheads who will only appreciate your existence when there are Chinese tanks sitting in Rob Reiner’s foyer.

Don’t worry too much about all those actors you see criticizing you and /or your bosses. Career actors do a lot of protesting, but it’s not their reason for living. They’re good at whining, but still, it’s just something they do between films.

The Hollywood left stays here because good acting gigs are much harder to come by in socialist or communist countries. They can whine about this nation from Malibu, while making millions acting and directing. Or they could chastise and belittle the United States from China, while earning 75 Yuan a week for playing the lead in “If They Could See Me Mao” at the Wuhan Community Playhouse.

The freedom to make lots of money trumps any urge to actually be dumb enough to live in a country that practices what they preach.

Your critics in Hollywood may be against all wars, but they also can’t help but notice that films about your battles make great box-office draw. To them, wars are unnecessary, gross injustices to humanity – immoral and illegal schemes that serve only the selfish and greedy whims of old white men. Oh, by the way, they also happen to be great topics from which they can reap a fortune for themselves, DreamWorks SKG and Paramount.

Though there’s plenty of criticism and finger pointing, you somehow manage to overlook this to do a job that keeps us safe and free.

Why do you do it? I’m sure there are many reasons, but there can be only one response: Thank you.

Monday means there's a column to plug

This week’s column is up at WorldNetDaily. The other day I read a story about the expansion of ‘Hooters Air’. The Chairman of the company that owns Hooters restaurants purchased Pace Airlines a couple of years ago, and it soon became ‘Hooters Air’. The airline is now expanding their service.

I started wondering about what magic formula would make an airline grow, while others in today’s world are cutting back, declaring bankruptcy, and flat-out going out of business. Also, could we apply this success formula to other areas of life, such as education? Click here to read about it.

Oliver Stone'd? "Greed for a buzz is…good"

Oliver Stone, director of Platoon, JFK, Wall Street, Born on the Fourth of July, and Alexander, was arrested in California on charges of drunk driving and suspicion of drug possession. In a way, it’s comforting to know that Oliver doesn’t act that way naturally.

I personally think he was set up by homosexual, drug running Castro sympathizers working in conjunction with the mafia, who put the plan in motion after hearing the code phrase “Blue horseshoe loves Anacott Steel” as the King of Macedonia was making out with Hephaistion.

Maybe I’ve been watching too many Stone films, but hey, it’s possible.

Hillary's chief fundraiser, David Rosen, acquitted — Jury to have one final request

Yesterday, David Rosen, Hillary Clinton’s aide, was acquitted on charges of lying to the government about the huge cost of a fundraising shindig, which was attended by the likes of Cher, Melissa Ethridge, Toni Braxton, Diana Ross, Brad Pitt, Jennifer Aniston, and, presumably, the National Enquirer and an on-call plastic surgeon.

According to Judicial Watch, some key evidence was “overlooked” in the case. What a surprise.

The jury deliberated for about six hours. I’m guessing that was one hour for actual discussion amongst the jurors about acquitting Rosen, and five hours of talking about how to ask the Clintons for the return of their FBI files.
