Blowhard Windbags Full Of Hot Air

Recently I've been noticing that there are many bizarre right-wing web sites out there. I think that Conservapedia wins the prize for most bizarre and most biased. 

Conservapedia is an English-language wiki encyclopedia project written from an American conservative, Young Earth creationist, and Christian fundamentalist point of view. The website was started in 2006 by American homeschool teacher and attorney Andrew Schlafly, son of conservative activist Phyllis Schlafly, to counter what he perceived as a liberal bias present in Wikipedia. It uses editorials and a wiki-based system to generate content.
The Schlafly connection explains a lot.

Then there is the site called Hot Air. It wins the prize for most bizarre name.

I started wondering why would someone choose Hot Air as the name of a political/news site? It seemed really dumb.

 Talking a lot, especially without saying anything of value or meaning.
Did the salesman tell you anything new, or was he just full of hot air?

The liberally biased Wikipedia gave me the answer. Hot Air was created by Michelle Malkin.

I like it when things make sense.
