@cityslikr lights @SueAnnLevy up like a pinball machine

(With an apology to pinball machines everywhere.)

That @cityslikr fella can be wonderfully succinct sometimes. I retweeted this earlier, but it deserves a whole blog post.

Word. If you're ever curious about why so many of our fellow citizens seem ruled by fear, resentment, and ignorance, the Venomous LoserTM  and her hateful little screeds are a big part of the reason. Sun Media's toxic effect just wouldn't be as toxic without her.

Some years ago, a singer / songwriter / satirist by the name of Tom Lehrer was said to have summed up his musical career thus:

If, after hearing my songs, just one human being is inspired to say something nasty to a friend, or perhaps to strike a loved one, it will all have been worth the while.

He was talking tongue in cheek, of course.

  1. There was a time when I would have described Levy as a professional character assassin but I've since decided even that doesn't do her justice. Her MO is to be outrageous enough in her attacks on her ideological enemies that it pretty much demands a response. Then she can claim to be the victim of persecution and, about half way through every column, transition to the subject she most likes to write about: Sue-Ann Levy.
