Ridicule has been on of the most effective (and quite satisfying) weapons to use on Team Kimberlin. Four years ago, I poked fun at Bill Schmalfeldt with an I’m Not Making This Up, You Know post.

The Cabin Boy™ was trying to write something clever about politics and succeeded in showing how little he knows about The Little Corporal. Of course, it was Napoleon who was tagged with that nickname because of his supposedly short stature and a rumor that corporal was his pre-revolutionary rank. Actually, he was of average height and had been commissioned as a Second Lieutenant of Artillery in 1785. Adolph Hitler, OTOH, was referred to as The Bohemian Corporal, originally by the Paul von Hindenburg, the last German president to serve before the Nazi takeover. Hitler had served as corporal in WWI, and “Bohemian” referred to his supposed lifestyle.

#SMH. This just another example of something the Cabin Boy™ knows that isn’t so.

This has been in many ways a battle of wits with unarmed men.
