I’ve been spending the afternoon in a fun Twitter fight with the one and only John Podhoretz, author of the brilliant book pictured above and who tried to pick on me. Luckily, I enjoy punching back. I love being called an academic elite by a man whose entire career has depended on daddy. Being able to tell him this brought me great joy.
Unlike you, you hack who makes Adam Bellow seem like a deserving scion of a powerful father, I come from a Oregon logging town and my dad was a Reagan voting plywood mill worker. Now go back to your cocktail parties and elitist bullshit. When you meet real Americans, talk to me.

I also liked where he claimed to try and read my book but hated it. Well, I don’t know if I can handle criticism from a man who not only wrote George W. Bush propaganda but who claimed Cinderella Man is one of the greatest films ever made! I don’t know how I am going to recover from this searing rebuke!
Twitter may not be productive, but it does provide free entertainment sometimes!
Update: John seems sad.
FIFTH RATE TWITTER ACADEMICs: You are a fraud and a hack and your daddy got you your job and you stink. Now read my article.
