With Enemies Like These...

Posted by on Mon, Jan 16, 2012 at 11:44 AM

From the electronic mailbag:

In my opinion savage spreads garbage. he is fowl mouth and a disgrace to journalism.

That's the entire message.

It's a dirty job but somebody has to do it.

Since when is Dan a journalist?

Is Dan Savage a journalist? I've only heard him refer to himself as a sex-advice columnist. I don't track his every word nor listen to his every utterance, so maybe someone can correct me, but I can't remember him calling himself a journalist.

All in all, i's actually a rather polite message, with that "In my opinion" disclaimer.

Dan does not have a beak. I have seen pictures and video and he has a normal human mouth... unless there has been a massive conspiracy to photoshop away the truth...

Someone on Rick Santorum's staff* needs to grammar-check his email before he sends it.

*Insert staff joke as necessary

@16

It happens, often when there are posts about Dan Savage and Nefarious Homosexual Aspirations Towards Equality.

@16 Just noticed that. I guess this post won't go to the "most commented" list.

@17

I'd never noticed it before. Kind of funny. But I guess I wish they'd do it more often, especially with posts dealing with crime that have a racial dimension.

Yes, it's true. Dan has a beak.

I don't think Dan has ever denied having a mouth that is, on occasion, full of cock.

If you are what you eat, then Dan certainly eats enough cock to qualify as a fowl mouth.

And banning unregistered commenters is a pussy move. Let Dan take his hits. He certainly gives enough.

@29 you cared enough to register. It's free, fast, and asks for relatively broad information to register. Asking for registered commentators doesn't prohibit anyone, it only increases the "value" of an account. That and this post wasn't penned by Dan.
