Once upon a time, there was a quaint little satire site, called Scrappleface. As of today, that site has had this many visitors since 21 Sep 2002. I found that site in the fall of 2004, and began posting there as "Rick". My first post was full of irony and I was immediately attacked by Mack and Hankmeister. Camojack and Hawkeye® got it and defended me. After a while posting as Rick, I noticed others using that name (not surprising - common name) and began posting as Pat'sRick©. That persona was my true, conservative self. Since Scrappleface was a humor site, I thought it would be fun to have another identity to post outrageous liberal talking points referenced to original source documents that refuted them. Someone had posted a few times as "A Random Liberal", so I adopted "Another Random Liberal."
Some of the Scrapplers thought I was actually Liberal Larry, but I did not even know who he was until the Tsunami when I followed a link to his site. Some Scrapplers attacked Another Random Liberal without following the links. Others caught on and suggested I was really a conservative in disguise.
To avoid confusing people, I created two other personae and allowed them to talk in my posts (Dave and Blarney).
Well, one day I decided to visit camojack's site and I wanted to leave him a message that I had been there. Unfortunately, only registered bloggers could leave a message. So I created Pat'sRick© Says. After a while, I thought I might as well post some things. Then I discovered that Chris Muir allowed folks to reference his political cartoons and I added that to the site. So here we are.
