Awesome Reader Mail!
18 April 2011
Sometimes when life gets a little dull I write a column about either abortion or Sarah Palin, topics that are guaranteed to enliven my mailbox and therefore my day. This week I wrote about both. My April 14 column on Planned Parenthood elicited the predictable barrage of emails and comments calling me a baby killer and suggesting I was too evil to reproduce (could be true!)
The response to my Sunday, April 17 column on Sarah Palin, however, blew all the other comments out of the water. While plenty of people appreciated what I had to say, even more people know for a fact that I'm a petty moron who's simply jealous of Palin's hotness. Maybe so . . . I'll do some hard thinking about it.
Below are some of my favorite emails.
(At least this person thinks I'm "rather funny.")
What a pathetic, inept, and uninformed person you are. Too bad all the yoga in the world won't make you look like anything but a snively little idiot bitch. Your atricles are brainless, and rather funny. when I read them I think of how miserable as a person you must be. Probably a fat ugly little girl who needs to prey on others to feel better. It's glaringly obvious little Meghan . . . The only special needs case I see here is you. Sarah Palin has your panties wound in a knot, and you know what? After reading your article, put side-by-side, you look like a squashed bug next to her. A fat, ugly squashed bug.
(I think I recognize this person from second grade)
Palin is better looking than you, more intelligent than you, and more successful than you. And catty you is just enraged about it. Palin earned everthing she has attained on her own. But you can't have a woman president because that would completely eliminate your victim status. Then dumb people like you wouldn't get a job. L.O.S.E.R. But then again that's your name isn't it Megan Dumb.
(Oh my god there's a wallflower prom? When?)
You could serve yourself much better by spending your time working on procuring a date for the wallflower prom. Besides, Meghan, you can't touch Sarah . . You just wish you were half the woman she is. And that will never change. Now go find someone like George Skelton to take you to that dance... Perhaps all of the psilocybin and LSD will provide him enough of a distraction to actually consider you a worthy dance partner... Naw. There aren't enough psychoactive drugs on the planet to make you look any better.
And, my personal favorite, from the comment board:
Meghan is 40 years old and still not married. Tick tock tick tock . . . Anyone who knows Meghan knows of what I speak. She's an angry middle aged woman and an intolerant hack.
My husband said he saw a comment that suggested he must be an "effete, metrosexual 'shove-over'" but I couldn't find it. So, which is it? Am I a spinster or am I married to Ryan Seacrest? In any case, I'm 41! Please, people, check your facts!
Anyway, I love hearing from readers! Seriously. So keep them coming.
