The "Mickey Kaus blows goats" meme should officially be retired.
It was started to protest Mickey's wild, constant rumor-mongering about John Edwards having an affair with a woman named Rielle Hunter. Crazily enough, John Edwards did have an affair with a woman named Rielle Hunter, an affair that resulted in the birth of an illegitimate child, an affair that, had Edwards won the Democratic primary, would have resulted in John McCain being elected president and Sarah Palin being elected vice president. Mickey was the only prominent voice raising these concerns at the time.
Thus it is indisputable that any effort Mickey put into trying to discredit John Edwards was not only correct, but he was indeed doing God's work. Mickey should be mocked for many things, but not for having oral sex with goats.
