Obama’s Hatchet Man

Tool of the Trade, except Metaphoricized

And so it begins… The humble beginning for the blog that hopes to keep John McCain up at night more than that reoccurring dream about “Charley” in the jungles of Vietnam. And believe me, aspirations are what got him through those mind altering, “Manchurian Candidate” days in the jungle – and its these same aspirations this site was founded to crush!

A little introduction, I am a hatchet man. We are a rare breed of political operatives whose job is pretty simple: scorch the political Earth with nuclear mud! But a more formal definition of this most noble of political post is in order….

Hatchet Man n. Slang
1. A man hired to commit murder. (While illuminating, not so much the definition I’m going for, except in the metaphorical sense)
2. One assigned to carry out a ruthless task or a vicious or unscrupulous order.

In other words, the hatchet man does the lords work of sorts. James Carville, Dick Morris, every Repulican on Talk Radio – these are the pantheon of greats – men who leave their scrupples at the door to achieve the highest of entertainment and greatest of service to ones country – tearing, mangling, outright destroying the candidate they oppose for the benefit of a one they look up to.

They sacrifice their reputations for the success of a candidate or ideal. The ultimate self-less act!

The best hatchet men, have the credibility to be taken seriously, the intelligence to rhetorically jujutsu their opponent, the tenaciousness and toughness of a Michael Vick pitbull on a PCP / roids cocktail, and above nothing to lose – either for them or the candidate they support. (3 out of 4 ain’t bad)

So bring on the Republican death threats, let the bashing begin, and hopefully I get a thank you note from Obama on White House stationary come January for the next six months of vitriol, nuclear mud slinging, and attacks that make Karl Rove look like a Care Bear in comparison.

Welcome to Obama’s Hatchet Man.

And may the attacks begin.
