In an earlier entry in my "you are a kook if:" series, I labeled my friend Tony as a kook, saying that anyone that knew who, or what, Hoa Tran was is a kook. Tony has proven my point with the following:
"Another day, another HOA TRAN. Marc, I will address this email to you, as your brother is hopeless (and I gave him so many hints). Note that the subject of my email was "Republican Primary". That would have given most "geniuses" (I use the term loosely) a clue to check out the REPUBLICAN PRIMARY. Now true, I did not specify the TEXAS Republican Primary, but I assumed that since I said " I was putting my money on HOA, that it would be the logical place to check, since I am a resident of the great state of Texas. Once arriving at the TEXAS REPUBLICAN PRIMARY site, boy genius would have found "my man"....the next president of the United States of America.... HOA TRAN, Purveyor of Oriental Medicine. God I love this country, where a man of humble means can become the president"
"Now that I have provided ample evidence that I am not a "kook", I hereby DEMAND that a retraction be provided posthaste from the infamous "Maverick Conservative"
There is, of course, a reason that kooks generally do not respond to my "you are a kook if:" series. It is because they know that they will merely PROVE themselves to be kooks. Tony, however, is so much of a kook that he even failed to realize what even the people with the tin foil hats (to keep out the alien radio/telepathic mind control waves) realize: exposing how kooky you are to the world is a bad idea. Here is my response to Tony (NOT a retraction):
