Today came the breaking news:
Man declaring himself emperor shot and killed near Colo. governor's office
APDENVER — A man carrying a gun and declaring “I am the emperor” was shot and killed Monday outside the offices of Gov. Bill Ritter by a member of the governor’s security detail, a spokesman said. Ritter was not injured.
Could it be Hillary? Or David (Gloria) Swanson? Or one of his followers and avid readers of Democrats.com? The man was probably mentally disturbed, which does not exclude the above but makes it even more likely.
For historical reference, here's $.$. Halliburton's post in full:
$.$. HalliburtonLaika, it appears that Gloria is now off the impeachment bandwagon. Now he's behind Hillary. In fact he's up to his old tricks and has ripped off one of my ideas!

I've decided to drop my advocacy for the impeachment of Cheney or Bush and focus on something more realistic: making Senator Hillary Clinton our next emperor. After all, when the candidate is someone good, you should want them to have as much power as possible. Bear with me a minute, and I think you may agree.
Now, electing Clinton as the 44th President is one thing, and that would be wonderful. But what makes that task truly historic and worth devoting our energies to for the next year and a half, or longer if the election is disputed, are the extra benefits. ...[read more of Gloria's column by clicking here]
Compare his plan to the one I layed out in this brilliant column: Let's Do Empire Right!
He even uses my old class nick-name Ka-Ching! in his column. Don't you Lefties have any original thoughts? Do you have to steal everything? Lousy commie rats.
He resurfaced a few years later (being completely wacko) and declared himself the Emperor of The United States of America, and Protector of Mexico. He was given tons of free stuff along with seats reserved exclusively for him and his dog at the Opera House.
He is the true first emperor of Amerikkka, but nothing compared with our Many Titted Empress, Queen Hillary.
RikaloniusDavid, David, David. Please try to keep your William Moulton Marston femdom fantasies in check. It's scaring the children. Empress Hillary is very familiar with the loopholes in the Amerikkkan government. Her co-equal politico husband invented them. With far more ruthless efficiency mind you. Has anyone associated with George Bush been found dead in a park? How dare you suggest that our most brilliant leader needs chicanery lessons from Chimpy McHalliburton. It would seem you are eyeing some time in the gulag, but then, that might be exactly what you desire. Maybe Empress Hillary will let you be whipped by one of her doubles. If you are really lucky, she'll wear that Wonder Woman number for you.
I smell a Thought Crime!
And if he's real nice to Our Many Titted Empress, spit shining, and I mean spit-shining without actual expectoration, her trotters, perhaps she will give him some realm of his very own to control, say the regulation of the labeling of hemorrhoid cures, which will necessitate a five-hour internet course before you can get the key to unlock the package, after which time you'll really need it because our Many Titted Empress will have had her way with you, with the new Hildo Hydra 2008: 3,000,000,000 heads, no waiting. All pain, all the time.
David, are you moist yet?
