I once did a panel discussion with Wonkette and Powerline's chief winger John Hinderaker. Backstage, Wonkette promptly got in an argument with Hindraker over -- get this -- evolution.
Needless to say, Wonkette was on the side of truth and science. Hinderaker was on the side of, er, wearing blinders. Given that Hinderaker is an attorney, I was too stunned to say much.
Anyway, those class acts have been busy lately calling Jimmy Carter a traiter and other such wingnut behavior. But nothing gives insight into who they are, and what kind of people they are, than this.
Short version -- 1) Hinderaker feigns puzzlement about the Gannon hoopla. 2) MN blogger sends civil email explaining to them why the story is a story (follow link to read that email). 3) Hinderaker responds:
You dumb shit, he didn't get access using a fake name, he used his real name. You lefties' concern for White House security is really touching, but you know what, you stupid asshole, I think the Secret Service has it covered. Go crawl back into your hole, you stupid left-wing shithead. And don't bother us anymore. You have to have an IQ over 50 to correspond with us. You don't qualify, you stupid shit.
Like I said, classy.
