Update on Dondero's new found fame
by Eric Dondero Bizarre. My article, "The end of liberty in America," from the day after the election, is finally getting noticed by the right media. This was my intention in the first place. Political Mafioso is running it in full. I am getting calls and emails from supporters that my article is being read on air on conservative talk radio shows nationwide. That's kind of cool. I would have never predicted that the leftwing media would run with the story, and the right media give it scant coverage. I still can't figure out why that is the case. To recap, this website got over 142,000 page views the day it was published. Over 85,000 the next day. And we continue to top the 20,000 a day mark almost a week later. This is astonishing when you consider that our previous high was 4,700 page views, back when Palin was announced in 2008. All sorts of odd things are happening to me. I've been contacted by a group that is working on a nationwide John Galt project. It coincides with my own "Di-vorce and De-friend" any Democrats you know. This one is for real. I hope to allow details to be released soon. Finally, on a personal note, people I hadn't heard from in over 30 years are getting in touch with me, saying they saw me on Fox News, or read the interview with me in the Daily Beast or New York Magazine. One of them is an old shipmate from my Navy days Will Lyman, on the guided missile destroy USS Luce DDG-38. He had this old photo of him and I. It was taken during a port call in Spain. He sent it to me yesterday. Yup, that's me with the beer in my mouth. Damned, I look like something out of an early 1980s new wave MTV video.
