Kathy, I have to say I’m disappointed with your blog post about the Coren show. Instead of linking to my site, as I linked to yours before the show and will do again today, you linked to an old comment thread in which you questioned my legal abilities. I think that’s uncalled for.
To which I replied:
Dear Mr. Cherniak,
Goodness me, you really are an overly sensitive little fellow.
You’re going to have to grow a thicker skin if you expect to make it in politics, as you obviously do.
(You wear your ambition like a suit that’s two sizes too big…)
I have no idea what you mean by phrases like “uncalled for.” Will you be challenging me to a duel next? (Not a good idea: I scored 100% on my handgun course.) 🙂
There are no rules in blogging and if there were I would break them anyway.
I’ve been doing this since you were just out of puberty, dear boy. Do not presume to lecture me on the niceties of the medium.
And I have every reason to doubt your acuity, since, as the links you object to demonstrate, you:
– think our rights come from Trudeau, and not God (what would Jefferson say?)
– Christians believe they are obliged to kill all Jews to hasten the Second Coming, a variation on the Blood Libel
– you fell for a silly email smearing the Conservatives for using clip art, yet put yourself forward as a new media expert.
These are just a few of the obtuse and foolish things you have written on your blog. You can’t write such things and then expect no one to remember or comment.
Instead, be overjoyed that your new client’s name will be all over the web yet again today, thanks (again) to me.
(Do you have any idea how many readers PajamasMedia has, or how many of them will now be eager to contribute to Mr. Rotberg’s defense fund, aka _pay your fee_? Of course not: you don’t even know who Maureen Dowd is.)
Come to think of it: have YOU blogged about Mr. Rotberg yet?
Shouldn’t _that_ be more important than emailing me about not linking to you?
Not very selfless or savvy of you, Jason. Tsk.
Makes me question your smarts once again, I’m afraid.
Over 3000 more people have heard of you, thanks to my blog post yesterday, link or no link.
But instead, you choose to wimper about a measly hyperlink. That’s a liberal for you. So petty. So blinkered. No vision.
Anyway: thanks for putting yourself forward as a somewhat tasty morsel to “eat for breakfast” this morning, my dear. Although I must say, you could use a little more starch…
You may now return to your regularly scheduled careerist party-hackery.
Signed, a ‘unprincipled’ fighter for free speech, yours etc.
You know, I’ve promised myself I’d start smoking again if I ever got cancer. What I wouldn’t give for a nice little Stage Two tumour right about now…
