Stacy McCain Demands Retraction Over ‘White Supremacist’ Charge, Predicts Doom for Smartass
Former Washington Times editor Robert Stacy McCain has requested a retraction this morning from the Charleston Gazette regarding a recent editorial in which the popular blogger is characterized as a “white supremacist.” And in the best tradition of the emotionally stunted internet tough guys who make up a large part of the conservative blogosphere, he has since implied that, rather than sue, he would be more inclined to actually go over to the offices of the Gazette in order to settle the matter himself in some manner that, while left unspecified, would reportedly be in line with the modus operandi of certain duel-happy frontier statesmen and their mothers. Meanwhile, he has predicted that your not-so-humble correspondent will “get his in turn,” which is probably true.
As I have just informed Mr. McCain, one of my recent articles notes that his transparent concern over minority teen pregnancy contrasts quite tellingly with his expressed lack of concern over teen pregnancy in general. Coupled with his stint at the Washington Times, which itself has been a hotbed of blatant racism for years, McCain would probably have difficulty winning any libel suit even if he were inclined to initiate such a thing. And thus his current strategy of talking a great deal of nonsense, which has proven successful so far, is probably the best way to go.
Updates will be added here as the situation develops, as situations are wont to do.
ZOMG LOL UPDATE 1:04 p.m. EST
McCain has discovered that I serve as director of communications for Enlighten the Vote. He is now denouncing our fine little PAC and making strange references to Biblical violence. I don’t know what to make of this so I’m just going to go play outside for a while.
