The Cucking Stool received a new supply of handsome Spotty™ medallions from Tild just in time to award a Spotty™ to Eric Jorgenson of Minneapolis for this letter in today's Star Tribune:
Joined by philosophy
So many reasons for Mitch Pearlstein to be pleased with himself (Commentary, March 9)! He disapproves of Ann Coulter! He's adopted a biracial daughter! He knows the meanings of hard words like "alliterative" and "larboard"! On a subsequent descent from Olympus perhaps Pearlstein will explain how he decides where to draw his lines of disapproval.
He's "not too thrilled" with Coulter, but she's gotten rich selling her shtick to dolts who mark their ballots as he marks his. He boasts of never having invited Coulter to address his think tank, but he's invited others who fawn on her.
Lacking the powers of discrimination possessed by these demigods, I find it convenient to revile them all uniformly.
Yes, that Mitch is a sanctimonious, pompous, hypocritical old fart, isn't he! Thanks for reminding us in such a concise and entertaining way, Eric. And let us not forget that Mitch's principal complaint was that Coulter was making it more difficult for well-meaning conservatives! If the difficulty comes from being unmasked, Mitch, Spot supposes you are right.
Remember, boys and girls, a Spotty™ is awarded to the author of a letter to the editor, an op-ed piece, or a blog post or comment that Spot wishes that he has written.
