The Kevin Fischer "Whippersnapper Hall of Fame"- Inductee #30

Whippersnapper Hall of Fame

For new readers:

I am always on the lookout for sharp, young, talented writers. As I have blogged in the past, these young folk must meet certain standards.

They must have a strong ability to write well.

Their efforts must be provocative and insightful.

They should have strong opinions and beliefs that are fact-based.

Their work should be grammatically correct, and they must not regularly and repeatedly flunk spell-check. Doing so would demonstrate a lack of pride and self-respect, not to mention a clear ineptness.

And there must be a consistency of excellence to their product. They wouldn’t dream of posting anything slightly embarrassing that would ruin their credibility in a heartbeat.

I have instituted recognizing special young writers who will be members of the Kevin Fischer “Whippersnapper Hall of Fame.” By the strictest definition, “whippersnapper” may not be the most positive term. However, I can assure you that in this context, “whippersnapper” should be considered in the most complimentary, respectful sense. These young individuals are refreshing.

Any young person with a computer can spit out foolish, naïve, fact-devoid, wild, unsubstantiated junk and call it a blog or creative writing. It takes intelligence, insight, and skill to compose a quality product that is noteworthy. My goal is to showcase these young writers who, by their true ability give us superb confidence that the future of our great country is in very capable hands.

These young stars are the real deal, bona fide talents. In reality, they are in a category far beyond "whippersnapper." I salute and congratulate them for putting their talents to such constructive use.

I will be updating the Hall of Fame when new talent comes to my attention. Readers are invited to nominate inductees by e-mailing me their suggestions.


I am also expanding my Hall of Fame beyond young writers to include young folks who have performed exceptional public service, accomplished outstanding feats, or demonstrated exemplary behavior.

There was a lot of this last week.

From Human Events:

Sure, it was a rough night for Democrats.  All of your “thought leaders” were dead wrong about what would happen, and why.  But rest assured, the same idiots who told you Wendy Davis was the face of the future in Texas are working furiously to spin the results of the midterm elections away. Here are some life preservers liberal bloggers and mainstream-media analysts will be tossing out, to help dejected Democrats make it through the GOP tsunami:

And you can read all the excuses.

And here is another explanation, the real explanation, video-wise of why the wave was so tsunami-like. So why did Democrats lose?
