Ted Rall, Interrupted?

I don't know if you've been following the whole stupid Ted Rall thing, but this is just too funny.

Apparently now he claims he's receiving death threats (damn, I knew I shouldn't have put my return address on that envelope...). One example:

Dear Santa:
Please let somebody kill Ted Rall while he's in Afghanistan.
That's the only thing I've ever asked for in my life for Christmas, except the Six Million Dollar Man with all the extra arms, and I promise I'll never ask for anything else.

I wish I had time to comment, but I think the subject's already been covered with more wit than I'll be able to summon until my deadline's over... or these meds kick in.

I read about that and death threats are ALMOST as tactless as his "cartoon", but all I could think of when I saw that article was:

"whhhaaaaa whaaaaa!"
sincerely,
Tasteless Ted Rall

Ted Railing Rall--just one more thoughtless, thankless, ungrateful, heartless putz media schmuck! (Imagine what I might say if I DIDN'T like him)

I consider this conclusive proof that God exists...talk about poetic justice. And the Treacher post was priceless. I laughed myself silly.

Methinks Sir Rall needs to sue himself for emotional distress that I suspect was existent way before he maligned and (attempted to) disgrace Pat Tillman.

Loved the new suit/to die for comment! LOL

Just never say anything like "if Ted Rall had a sense of humor & read Treachers post, he'd die laughing." Through his whiney hiney, psychedelic glasses that would read as a death threat, too.

Cassandra, is the title to this post a take off of "Girl Interrupted"?

Now what would give you that idea?

Posted by: Cassandra at May 6, 2004 9:01:04 PM

I guess I have a keen eye for the obvious, although my ex-wife would tell otherwise.

Puh-leez! Isn't this Rall individual well into his sixteenth minute of fame?

Quite possibly. That's why I didn't write about him before this. But I thought the death threat thing was amusing in its own right.
