As you may have noticed, some underlings of the nation’s preeminent racist concentration camp apologist attempted to send her flying monkeys against me for daring to call a highly partisan judge who believes that the Constitution enacted Ms. Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged a “neoconfederate hack.” Alas, even the most permanently aggrieved winger must have trouble generating outrage over use of the word “hack,” and the typical Twitchy reader presumably considers “neoconfederate” a compliment (or an insult only because of the “neo.”) So the whole the whole attempt to get another head on a stick was a big fizzle.
This isn’t to say, however, that some comedy gold did not result! Meet a young Canadian reactionary, bidding fair to be the poor man’s Adam Yoshida, or perhaps the homeless man’s Ezra Levant, who tried to catch Ms. Malkin’s eye with some deep research:
@TwitchyTeam Look at @LemieuxLGM’s profile. “Perfesser” or professor? #SpellingMistake? #TheStateofAcademia pic.twitter.com/hG6pBQWT
An entertaining if somewhat broad parody of the typical Twitchy reader, thinks I. But further consultation of the gentleman’s twitter feed reveals the hilarious truth: he believes that me calling myself “perfesser” in my one line twitter profile indicates that I am unaware of the proper spelling of “professor.” (They’re coming for you next, Edroso!) And WHAT DOES THIS SAY ABOUT THE STATE OF MODERN ACADEMIA, I ask you? Unless this guy’s mother also helped create the Lewinsky scandal I don’t think he can quite cut it at the National Review, but he probably has an internship waiting for him at Col. Mustard’s place.
In conclusion, I believe that “perfesser” lacks gravitas. I now demand to be referred to as “Herr Doktor* Lemieux.”
*Note to any Michelle Malkin fans: I do not think this is the proper English spelling of “doctor.” I regret the confusion. Also, I do not think William Jacobson is a character from Clue.
