Notorious wingnut-right boilerplate poster at Mt. Blogmore prior to destruction by corporate bean counters, and Woster and Rasmussen, Art Oakes died recently in the Black Hills. He struggled for two years against pancreatic cancer.
Oakes was like a cuckoo clock that clanged at least once a day. He dumped the same rehash of the same irrelevancy into Mt. Blogmore over and over again even after the tripe had been shredded for lack of facts or abundance of illogic a dozen times.
But, Art Oakes had the integrity to put his own name on his posts which was something many wingnuts refuse to do. May he rest in peace....and never post anything again. Condolences to his wife and family who loved him and to the editors of the Rapid City Journal and Mt. Blogmore who apparently loved his ideological mythology.
