Holy Obsessively Anti-Gay Dudes, Batman: When Shepards Continue to Attack (Now With Go You Crazy Markie Mark Updates!)
If you thought that Mark Shepard had in mind a single crazed attack on VDB over the issue of same-sex marriage, think again: apparently Mr. Shepard plans to retail his plucky little missive to as many outlets in the state as will have him. Yesterday, the Rutland Herald; today, the Bennington Banner. Well, at least we’ll have something to tell the grandkids, when they ask what we did during The Marriage Wars: “Well, Scotty, your grandpappy endured the sharp little teeth of a strange little man from down Bennington way, for many weeks . . . and by Jesus them teeth hurt, Scotty. Oh, them teeth hurt like the dickens!”
Shepard Hat-Trick Update, Monday 1:53 pm:
Sources tell us that Shepard’s shout-out will appear tomorrow in the Caledonian Record. Total hat-trick! Go Mark! You the (homophobic) man!
Later Go Marky Mark Update, Tuesday, 9:25:
Honestly we would have been offended if Shepard had somehow failed to get his anti-VDB screed posted at the True North radio blog. Compared to the Rutland Herald, True North is low-hanging fruit, frankly, when it comes to publishing conservative talking points. But not to worry, friends, Marky Mark rules again.
Today True North. Tomorrow the Mad Money Show with Jim Cramer.
Final Update? Don’t You Believe It, Tuesday, 9:33 am:
Hardest working man in wingnuttery: Shepard actually pastes his letter into the comment thread of a John McClaughry piece over at Vermont Tiger, which is just really taking it to a whole new level, if you see my point. You have to love this guy (but not in a gay way.)
