Corey Hutchins of the Columbia Free Times has produced an astounding piece of propaganda!

Hutchins impossibly manages to combine the lyricism of "To Kill a Mockingbird" with the violence and brutality of "The Godfather."  And he apparently thinks it's for a good cause: the supposedly reformed panderer, Jake Knotts!

The only problem here is that people can easily believe the admitted police brutality and other violence on Knotts' part but not the made-up stargazing BS from Knotts' "magical" childhood.

No one has a problem with Knotts being a literal bastard.  The problem is that he is a metaphorical bastard, too.

The most offensive and most egregious lie perpetrated in the article came from the big mouth of Jake Knotts himself:

“I’m not like the regular person up here worrying about getting re-elected; doing things just to get re-elected. I do it because it’s for the good of the people.”

Yeah, right!  And if you had wings, Jake Knotts, you'd fly.
