Yeah, so, we’re back to our regularly scheduled blog posts now.
My Scoop writing days are finished for now. I was filling in for someone else who was on vacation, and she’s back. We have completely different writing styles. Regular readers of the Scoop probably didn’t know what to think. For example, I wrote about Michelle Duggar and how she treats her vagina like a clown car. The regular Scoop writer wrote about how Jessica Simpson is delaying her wedding until after she has her baby. She ended the item by saying something along the lines of, “We’re happy for Jessica. She seems really happy.”
During my short stint I did manage to piss off some folks. Yep, I still got it. Someone actually commented that I was “one of the most hateful, arrogant, sarcastic b****es who has ever written for a newspaper…. Judgmental and hateful.”
I’m sure that’s not true. I think Ann Coulter has written something for a newspaper before.
Also, some conservative website that claims to sniff out liberal bias in the media wrote about my coverage of the Duggars having their 20th child. They thought I did a first-rate job and commended me on my strong writing skills. Just kidding. The writer used the word “snark” three times to describe my writing style, while the commenters offered up these gems:
- “If Michelle Duggar had 20 abortions, that would be OK with Mansfield, I think.”
- “My guess is Sonia has had a few (abortions) and is dealing heavily in cognitive dissonance. Or sadly may not be able to have children and has some kind of envy syndrome.”
- “Which is worse: 45, married with 19 (soon 20) kids and a terrific family (and several successful family businesses); or 41, married with no kids and a dog named Homer (who has a very special place in her life) and a journalism degree enabling writing about TV, movies, and “my Sh** List”. It’s pretty easy to tell which one is from America’s heartland and which one is from San Fransicko.”
San Fransicko! Good one, random commenter. Did you steal that one from Larry the Cable Guy? I love that you went to my blog to do some research but seemed to miss the fact that I do have a kid, even though pretty much every post since April has been about pregnancy or the Spawn. I guess one of my abortions didn’t take. Now I suggest you stick to commenting about what you know best: the fact that “Two and a Half Men” isn’t funny anymore since Charlie Sheen was fired.
