On Philip R. Klein and Patrick McDermott

See the following on Philip R. Klein and Patrick McDermott:

But as I want to take this editorial in a way that you the reader can understand.
Mission failure.

Let's discuss the true facts concerning recent developments in the investigation of Patrick McDermott by Philip R. Klein, Private Invegitator. We'll revisit many times in the future as the private detective builds a new career on the disappearance of a Hollywood camera tech, whose biggest claim to fame is his romantic involvement with Olivia Newton-John. 

In this most recent development, Philip. R. Klein has produced a purported fax from a "friend" of McDermott, and Klein now claims he's almost completed his investigation.

From RadarOnline.com, dated August 10, 2009.  The emphasis is mine:
According to Klein, the U.S. Coast Guard has uncovered dramatic new evidence revealing how McDermott planned his disappearance for at least six months and withdrew life savings from two bank accounts before vanishing.
Klein also tells RadarOnline.com that the Coast Guard also discovered that McDermott now works as a deckhand in the small Mexican fishing town of Sayulita.

The investigator concluded, “This case is now 94 per cent solved. The remaining six per cent is to actually see McDermott sitting in front of my face.”
To summarize, the silly sleuth told the publication that the U.S. Coast Guard has uncovered dramatic new evidence  and discovered McDermott living in Sayulta, Mexico. The article is more about Philip R. Klein than Patrick McDermott.

Readers thoroughly familiar with Philip will spot his fuzzy math immediately; what's the difference between 94 percent or 95 percent?  I suspect most people would state a truth as "...about 95 percent solved." Likewise, I suspect most liars would make up an exact figure for attempted credibility: "This case is now 94 percent solved."

But don't take my word for it.  From the Long Beach Press-Telegram, dated August 10, 2009; the emphasis is again mine:
So recent reports that he's alive and well and living in Mexico sounded pretty amazing ... except local Coast Guard investigators consider the "letters" to be nothing more than hoaxes themselves.
In statements Monday, Coast Guard investigators based out of Terminal Island, near where McDermott was last seen, said the Coast Guard closed separate investigations in 2006 and 2008 and found no "evidence of criminal action, suicide, accident or hoax in the disappearance of McDermott. Both investigations suggest that McDermott was indeed lost at sea," the Coast Guard said in an email.
So who's lying: the U.S. Coast Guard or Philip R. Klein?

For the answer, let's examine the purported fax sent to Klein Investigations:
As I pointed out in a previous article, this fax contains many of Philip R. Klein's signature grammatical train wrecks. Most readers of the Southeast Texas Political Review will immediately recognize his style.  This is especially true for those who read his Reader Mail page, where Philip answers questions he's written himself. 

Among his signatures:
  • Trite phrasing and awkward sentence construction: "If you continue this madness that you have created...."
  • Confused prepositions: "...the spotlight to which he lived..."
  • Missing punctuation and run-on phrases: "...have created by your accusation Pat will hold you..."
  • Redundancies: "You may assume that Pat is alive and is very well..
  • Confusion over word forms: "...as a man whom has..."
There are still others that I won't mention today.

To be continued!

Gus, look at the fax header. The numbers have been intentionally inserted as 000-000-0000. Fax machines are designed to leave a specific signature. That is not a fax.

Gus, I think it is important to note that the Coast Guard considers this letter to be a hoax.

"But I want to take this time to show all of you out there what liberals do. That is - to attack those who they perceive attack them."

Phil, you actually wrote this in the context of an article attacking the enterprise after they "attacked" you? You really don't have a sense of irony, do you?

Poor 'Lil Fil. He's the only living "sole" that believes his self-written letters look credible. Of course, he's unable to recognize the depth of his personality disorders so it follows he wouldn't recognize that his self-written letters look like he wrote the letter himself.

Klein has no sense - period.

As evidence, consider his broken marriages, bankrupt businesses and a hunt for the Loch Ness monster to bolster his fragile ego.
