Yes, Kate ... why don't you go into battle to protect your reputation? Seriously, is anyone in the Batshit Crazy Wingnut-o-sphere still deranged enough to want to tussle with Dr. Dawg? Last time I looked, that never ends well.
BONUS CRUNCHY WINGNUTTY GOODNESS: Oh, man ... this has MASSIVE potential entertainment value. I would like to put Canada's Progress-o-sphere on full comedy alert to start collecting their favourite Kateisms over the years. You know, where she publicly asked drug addicts to kill themselves, that sort of thing.
Screenshots would probably be a good idea.
NOW HERE'S WHAT'S WEIRD: Frankly, it's not at all clear what has Kate in such a panty-bunching snit. Dawg simply suggested that Kate was quietly cackling with glee over the murder of dozens of journalists, and anyone who's followed Kate with any regularity over the years would not find that attitude of hers surprising in the least.
Kate McMillan is the undisputed queen of Canadian bloggysphere eliminationist rhetoric (well, OK, Kathy Shaidle would give her a run), and taking pleasure in the misfortune, injury and death of people with whom she disagrees ideologically is, quite simply, Kate's entire shtick. It's what she does; it's just Kate playing to her drooling, mouth-breathing base. So for her to take offense to someone suggesting this now strikes me as just plain odd.
Kate McMillan's built her entire online career on wishing ill or death on entire demographics. For her to get all snippy when someone calls her on it seems wildly inappropriate.
BONUS TRACK: For someone who finds dead journalists mildly entertaining, Kate seems to have no problem taking an MSM gig when she can get one. I wonder what her fellow National Posties think of her opinion of them.
