RIP Al Weisel (aka the blogger Jon Swift)
Very sad news. Al Weisel, freelance writer and the blogger known as Jon Swift, has passed away due to a sudden aortic aneurysm. He was a great guy and a wonderfully witty writer. He will be sorely missed. Tom Watson has more information here.
MORE: If you’re unfamiliar with Al’s faux conservative prowess, this is a good place to start. One of my fairly recent favorites was his “10 Best Conservative Movies” post. There are many great entries to choose from, so in honor of Al please leave links to your favorite Jon Swift posts or copy ‘n’ paste some of your favorite quotes in the comments.
