What I’m About
Greetings. My name is John Connolly and welcome to my Cranky Notions. I happen to be that notorious libertarian, Zionist, Neo-Confederate blogger who wrecked the 2011 Presidential campaign of the Irish Senator David Norris. Sound interesting yet?
There is only one rule I maintain that is possibly unique to this blog: all Nazi comparisons are forbidden. I believe this improves the level of debate substantially.
When I was pondering whether starting a blog was worth it, I thought of Matt Drudge. That sealed it. The Drudge Report exposed the mainstream media for the pygmies they are in 1998, by broadcasting the fact that Newsweek were trying to bury the story of Monica Lewinsky’s liaisons with Bill Clinton, first dug up by investigative reporter Michael Isifoff. The power of the new media was evident. Five months after I began blogging, I had my ‘Matt Drudge moment’ when I found the Irish media clearly protecting a darling candidate. The speed of the whole process actually took me by surprise.
By the way, I’m a 23 year old law graduate living in London. I enjoy travelling, learning, and a good argument. I’ve been described as a first-class shit stirrer, but otherwise a nice fellow.
