The Empire Strikes Back
I don't know if it's my brain shorting out, or just the sheer volume of material that I pump out on a daily basis, but I had completely forgotten about this post from August 2 of this year, in which I heaped scorn on a godawful Flash ad in support of a Hillary Clinton 2008 presidential run. Like much of my stuff, I crossposted it to Andrew Ian Dodge's Dodgeblogium.
The outraged creator found it a couple of days ago and fired off this missive to Andrew. I hate it when other people get credit for things I've written:
Bruce Yarock here...your criticism of our Hillary cartoon might be interesting if you weren't some anonymous bloghack out in god knows where. The cartoon, and several others, were aired on six major news shows (unlike your fruitcake publication). The cartoon was covered in 185 newspapers around the world. How's that compare to the six or seven "no life" rejects who read your idiotic tripe. By the way, we do not deal with land "in the middle of the Everglades" as your lame attempt at Catskill humor implies. Who the hell ARE you anyway? And what have you done aside from your lame attemts at ridicule? Andrewian dodge? I see that you are an " American expat lving in London". Good. Stay there. You've got the typically Brittish schoolbugger name, so you probably fit in famously over there. Have a nice day.
Andrew forwarded it to me with the suggestion that I might care to engage Mr. Yarock in dialogue. I think not. His withering rebuttal has got me scared and running for cover.
P.S. The ad still stinks.
