Unlimited Terms of Endearment Part XXXIII, The Final Smear

This just hit this weekend. It would seem that THE STATE in South Carolina, and the Portland OREGONIAN have transgressed by pointing out the Howie Rich connection. So, semi-anonymously, two shadowy "smears" appeared, each of which used the same "talking" point:

*"I am Coyote," by his own admission is former (and present?) Rich operative Ted Piccolo, who lives somewhere in Washington state at an indeterminate location.
In both cases, the attempt is made -- as per usual -- to paint those in opposition to Howard Rich's schemes as whatever Rich is accused of. Here, they claim that the owners of both papers are "out of state" millionaires trying to control the state's politics.

Probably too little, too late, but noteworthy nonetheless even if, as per usual, the "humorous approach" used in the Oregon blog is sophomoric at best.

Who ever told these people that they were "funny"? It seems to be a cruel joke to play on a cabal that is, by all evidence, utterly humorless.
