Hunter S. Thompson

Hunter S. Thompson: "'Who does vote for these dishonest shitheads?' he writes, referring to the people currently occupying the White House. 'They are the racists and hate mongers among us -- they are the Ku Klux Klan. I piss down the throats of these Nazis.'"

We'll miss ya Hunter!

Tonight at Toca’s bar -- Hunter’s bar in San Francisco -- I will attempt to talk to that angry God that is punishing Red America. And I will attempt to talk to that broken hearted ghost who loved America so much. Anything is possible tonight at Toca’s bar, because tonight in the Toca the American Dream will again live.

Hunter requests the last big boom, ashes shot from a cannon

Dig this snipet taken from an interview last fall (

Hunter S. Thompson: ...this yoyo, this stupid little... It's cheap opera. Take a look at your pocket. Take a look around you. It's a hold-up, a looting of the national treasury, and that's what they're doing. The combined spending of the Kerry campaign is far less than $5 million for advertising. Five million dollars, that's like a goddamned Susan Anthony dollar compared to $60 billion that is just routine going out to Halliburton. We might lose if we went to war with Halliburton... I'm very angry. That's why I guess I have to write this (campaign) piece for Rolling Stone. This is the darkest hour that I have seen in my long experience as an American. This is evil.

Now, isn't it an interesting coincidence that another outspoken media critic of Bush ends up dead of an "apparent suicide"? Hey, call me crazy, but geez...
