The Mickey Kaus Oppo Research Project

John Cook · 04/15/10 02:26PM

Poor blogger Mickey Kaus is running for Senate, and no one really cares. But we do, so we launched a little project to gather dirt on him. The best we got is that he brings heroin-addicted sex perverts into schools.

Labor Relations Expert Mickey Kaus on GM

Pareene · 06/02/09 12:25PM

On Friday, noted blogger Mickey Kaus decried the Obama administration's attempts to prolong the inevitable death of shitty car company GM. No one even wants their depressing cars, he noted! On Sunday, it's the fault of "unskilled workers making $28 an hour who have bankrupted their employers."

Wait, Really?

Jack Shafer: "I'm at a two-day Slate retreat at the Mohonk Mountain House playing team-building "trust games" with Mickey Kaus, Julia Turner, Nathan Heller, and a handgun. I'm kidding about the trust games, but I'm serious about being stuck in the soul-bleaching bath that is a retreat." Shudder.

The John Edwards "Sex Scandal" For Idiots

Pareene · 10/16/07 11:05AM

So this nutty hippie lady maybe fell in love with John Edwards and they maybe had an affair and then John Edwards' definitely hired her to do some work for his campaign despite her lack of qualifications and then they erased all traces of the work and then a year went by and then the Huffington Post and the National Enquirer both sorta ran with a sex scandal story and then everyone involved denied it. You caught up? Good! Radar wants to know why no "legitimate" news outlets are covering it. Good question! Slate blogger Mickey Kaus has sure enjoyed himself with it! But Edwards is so damn nice and so clean cut and lovable and his wife has cancer and maybe everyone just doesn't want to believe it? Or else maybe his campaign has proven so inept at matching Obama and Hillary in fundraising and polls that no one sees any point in piling on with a story that is so far mostly innuendo and maybe some DAMNING EMAILS from a demonstrably crazy lady.

Did Bill Clinton bug Princess Diana in an attempt to ease Hillary's path to the Senate? Mickey Kaus uses Tina Brown's recent biography of the late princess to connect some dots showing that, well, we're not sure. Nice to know that Bill can still make people crazy though! [Kausfiles]

Mickey Kaus takes a break from his endless agitation against the immigration bill to examine the case of L.A.'s reporter-fucking mayor. While Kaus suggests that this is only the tip of the iceberg, we offer Mayor Villaraigosa this bit of encouragement: Rudy Giuliani's second wife was also a member of the media. You're only one wife away from being a viable presidential candidate! [Kausfiles]

Blogger's Mother Solves Vanishing Bee Mystery

Remember how global warming skeptics would point out that there were still cold days in the spring? And then we all realized there was no global warming? Well, thanks to Slate blogger Mickey Kaus' mom, we don't have to worry about that disappearing bee epidemic either! Yay!

Media Bubble: Giving You The Bird

abalk2 · 03/15/07 10:08AM

Someone sent us this picture of what they describe as a "wild bird" outside the Conde Nast building this morning, which is apparently freaking people out as much or more than the homeless woman who was peeing in the lobby of 4 Times Square on Friday. The bird will be served in the cafeteria around noon. Anna Wintour's gonna put a napkin over her head and eat it ortolan-style. And now, the news.
