Tips on How to be a Partisan Historical Hack

Wilson at the Elfin Ethicist has a great post up on How to write tendentious history. It lists 14 tips for successfully using bias and spin when looking at history. Several commenters have added some additional good tips as well.

This list is well worth reading. I think I just might submit it to the next History Carnival. The Carnival of Satire may want this too...

Sorry, I beat you to the Carnival of Satire, but I don't remember if I submitted it to CoH or not.
