Fan Mail

After cross-posting this piece at Shakesville the other day, I got the following e-mail:

To: MustangBobby @ barkbarkwoofwoof.com
Subject: Bleeding Hear

You fucking bleeding heart liberal’s make me sick. God damn queer’s trying to overtake this country. Your friends blog is stupid and a haven for queer’s and dumb feminazis. You should read more Rush Limbaugh.

I replied:

I refuse to engage in a battle of wits with an unarmed opponent.

Yeah, I know; it’s an old line attributed to Winston Churchill, but it’s better than berating the poor dumb soul for his lack of paying attention in Grade 5 when the basics of English grammar and composition are taught.

By the way, that’s the first piece of troll-mail that I’ve gotten for my work over at Shakesville, so hey, it’s nice to be noticed.
