I’ll never understand why columnists enjoy being bitch-slapped by wingers so much.
Recently, I wrote a column commending President Obama for his long-range vision and for the patience to wait, beyond his own term if necessary, for the rewards to appear.
The column really irritated a reader in Maryland, who unloaded on Washington Post ombudsman Andy Alexander, who sent the complaint on to me.[…..]
Aside from the “fellow travelers” phrase in the last paragraph, which struck me as a cheap shot redolent of 1950s-style anti-communism, I really admired the letter and thought the writer was making valid and important points.
Why not just hire a hooker to dress up as Sarah Palin and beat you with a riding crop?
And it goes without saying that when hippies write angry letters, it just goes to show that how shrill, angry, and out-of-step the left is.
