“William the Bastard” circa 1024
“The International Criminal Gang of Bastards, led by Tony Blair and George Bush” circa 2003
“Karl Rove- Magnificent Bastard” 11/2000-11/2006
“Conservative and Right Wing Bastards, led by Jim Robinson and FreeRepublic.com” circa 2009
Bastards, getting the job done right for the past 1000 years.
Yes, it is a badge of honor. First ‘pajama-clad,’ now ‘bastards.’ ‘Sticks and stones’ etc. Must mean we are hitting home.
