Zing! Zing! Zing! Award Goes to Mister Ghost

Mister Ghost last night was given the coveted Zing!-Zing!-Zing! Award by the editorial board of Shako-Mako Iraqi News.

For his contributions to devilish wit and deadly accuracy with the rapier, Mister Ghost will receive a weekend prison visit with Martha Stewart and a garage-full of yellowing copies of Martha Stewart Living.

Mister Ghost's keen eye led us to the now-obvious connection between Raed Jarrar and Hunter S. Thompson. Mister Ghost wrote on our Comments Pages:

~ I'm praying for a George Bush re-election, because Raed, the Hunter S. Thompson of Iraqi Bloggers (I hope future historians give me credit for
being the first one to make this this analogy) will have a magnificient and glorious breakdown.
All captured in his blog for us mere mortals to imbibe.


Kris from Seattle was one of the first to recognize Mister Ghost's deft rapier-work.

>Raed, the Hunter S. Thompson of Iraqi Bloggers (I hope future historians give me credit for

HAHAHA ROFL Mister Ghost, you certainly get credit from me. Spot on.


CMAR II quickly showed his appreciation:

Raed, the Hunter S. Thompson of Iraqi Bloggers

LOL Reading this I immediately thought of the book "Fear and Loathing in America". Thompson's compiled letters. At one point, someone from Rolling Stone sends a nice professional letter asking Thompson to send the receipts for his already filed expenses. Thompson's reply is a scrawl:
"WHY ARE YOU PERSECUTING ME!!!"

By gads, I think this fits!



UPDATE: Kris from Seattle has located another point of convergence between Raed Jarrar and Hunter S. Thompson in the Good Doctor's Magnus Opiate. Kris writes on the Comments Pages:

From now on when Raed is talking about having just one more vodka-tequila highball, I'll be thinking of the first line from Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas... We were about 20 miles outside Barstow when the drugs began to take effect. And then the story gets told. Or in Raed's case, then the blog entry is posted.
