From a reader:
Reading that Olbermann viewer’s comments, I was reminded for some reason of the following quote from “Billy Madison”:
Mr. Madison, what you’ve just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.
And yours, too, Jonah, if that email is representative of what you have to wade through.
Me: Dude, that e-mail is tame compared to a lot of what I get. The only reason I could post it is that the language was PG. I’m not complaining — well, I guess I am complaining, just not overly — but you guys don’t know how much nasty stuff folks like Kathryn and I get every day. This guy is a anemic toddler with a Nerf bat compared to some of the junk that gets dumped on my virtual doorstep everyday.
