Who among us would ever have guessed that Jeff Gannon – THE Jeff Gannon, on whose word we relied for lo, these many decades – might one day be brought down? Why, if you’d been told two years ago that Jeff Gannon (Gannon! Journalistic superbeing! Titan of the White House press corps! The main guy at Talon News!) would somehow lose his supreme authority, you’d have laughed until your lungs bled.

Well, nobody’s laughing now … now that we live in the post-Gannon era:

Jeff Gannon (or if you prefer, James Guckert) has been elevated by an unnamed Democratic strategist to cult like status. According to an article posted on Raw Story, we are all now living in something the fringe left calls the “post-Jeff Gannon era.”

NYT fringe leftist Frank Rich is also alert to the awesome historical forces now in play:

“The death of Thompson represents the passing from the Age of Gonzo to the Age of Gannon,” wrote Russell Cobb in a column in The Daily Texan at the University of Texas. As he argues, today’s White House press corps is less likely to be invaded by maverick talents like a drug-addled reporter from a renegade start-up magazine than by a paid propagandist like Jeff Gannon, a fake reporter for a fake news organization (Talon News) run by a bona fide Texas Republican operative.

The Age of Gannon. His mighty influence and tragic legacy humble us all.

UPDATE. Stop the Gannons!
