By Brad Friedman on 9/9/2007 9:05am PT  

Meant to post this some time ago. As seen a few weeks ago on a street corner lamp post in Kansas City, MO, at the intersection of Baltimore and 38th...

* With apologies to the legendary Freeway Blogger...who actually has a new, killer 60 second video demonstration of how he plies his trade. So here's that as well. Perhaps more germane, if not nearly as amusing as the above (at least to me). Buckle up...

PLUS: The Freeway Blogger's 'Public Punditry' Contest Begins!
By Brad Friedman on 4/12/2007 6:54pm PT  

It was "60 feet long and only lasted about fifteen minutes," the legendary and mysterious Freeway Blogger reports about the above handiwork, courtesy of a brave minion in Chicago. But it was "well worth it according to the artists," says FB, who points out the sign, seen by thousands in that short moment, was "Made with cheap latex paint and disposable plastic tablecloths: about ten dollars for a hundred foot roll. Brilliant."

But leave it to the legendary and mysterious one himself to hit it out of the park with this latest beauty featuring what just may be one of the best catch phrases of our time...

"Blowing the job" bumper stickers coming soon, FB tells us, along with a request that we alert folks to his new "public punditry" contest in league with a few other freedom fighting sites.

Consider it done, and a job decidedly not blown, amigo...Far it be for The BRAD BLOG to leave any unfortunate stain on our reputation.

(Be sure to click the link above, btw, for a sampling of some of FB's greatest historical hits!)

A Look Back at the 'War on Terror' Five Years Later...
By Brad Friedman on 9/10/2006 11:47am PT  

As I roll down the freeway towards home, I'm reminded of our friend, the legendary and mysterious Freeway Blogger, who didn't wait five years to remember 9/11. Here's a look back at a few of his finest moments remembering...while Bush and Friends had long forgotten...

PLUS: Freeway Blogging in YOUR Hometown!
By Brad Friedman on 3/1/2006 9:28pm PT  

Our good friend, the mysterious and legendary Freeway Blogger posted the above yesterday, one prophetic day before Bush's latest nonsense about "hunting down bin Laden." Bush was just kidding, of course. FB wasn't.

On that note, FB is now organizing nationwide. Won't you join him?

The Legendary and Mysterious Roadside Samizdat Busts Out a New Song and Dance!
By Brad Friedman on 2/2/2006 10:57pm PT  

Says the Freeway Blogger in a note to The BRAD BLOG about his new flash video/song: "It's full effect as a propaganda device will become apparent an hour or two after first viewing. You'll see."

And, as usual, he was right!

2K Why?...
By Brad Friedman on 10/25/2005 12:02pm PT  

Click the photo for more info, but as an aside, as we pass this horrible milestone, we were honored recently to witness the work of the brilliant and prolific Freeway Blogger firsthand along the 101 Freeway as we made our way back to Los Angeles from Portland, OR. We caught several of the above signs as well as "The War is a Lie".

Be an American Hero in your home town and join the good FB in his campaign to inform millions of citizens on the highways and byways of America! And have fun doing it!

For Andy...
And for The Truth...
By Brad Friedman on 7/28/2005 12:07pm PT  

In re: the above, memorializing our lost friend Andy, the great Freeway Blogger reports in to us this morning that, this one has been up "four days now on I-5 in the heart of San Diego downtown, so a couple hundred thousand commuters have seen it."

As well, the Freeway Blogger's "Summer of Truth" continues...

If you haven't already joined him, please free to keep spreading the word! And the truth! His site shows you how easy it it. Your country --- and your grandchildren --- thank you.

From a note we just received from our friend, the Freeway Blogger...

"the enclosed, by the way, is what happens when you take down my signs and replace them with a lame "Support our troops" sign done w/ paper and printer..."

He went on to add...

"never fuck with the freewayblogger..."

We won't.

Freeway (or Mr. Blogger, if you're nasty) was our guest in the final hour of last weekend's BRAD SHOW. If you missed the interview, it was a hoot! Go to the BRAD SHOW Archives and scroll on down to HOUR 4 of the 6/11/05 show to give it a listen!

    Shame on us.
    By Brad Friedman on 11/3/2004 1:51pm PT  

    For some reason I decided to get in a few hours of sleep this morning. So I'm just beginning to catch up on all that's transpired since I went to bed. Much analysis and opinion to come today no doubt.

    There will be plenty of time for the hand-wringing and discussions of the Right's Victory of Hate and Fear over Hope and Courage.

    For the moment though, as I begin to get caught up, read the ominous tea-leaves of what Bush's statement today foretold, and catch up with comments and email here, I think the words of The Freeway Blogger say it best:
