Best. Troll. Repellent. EVAR.

Ken at Popehat responds to groundless legal threats by “Marc Stephens,” who apparently is posing as a lawyer. Just for the record, making legal threats against someone who has spent five years as a federal prosecutor and another dozen as a federal criminal defense attorney is an even stupider gambit than threatening a libel suit against someone who has been committing investigative journalism for a quarter-century. Which is saying something:

Marc, kindly take this post — the link to which I will email to you — as a formal, legally binding, 100% certified style invitation to snort my taint.

Commenter “bill quoted” speaks for all of us, I think, when he repurposes this snippet from “Bull Durham”:

Stephens: I want to bring the heater. Announce my presence with authority.

everyone: To announce your what?

Stephens: My presence with authority.

everyone: To announce your presence with authority?! This guy’s a first ball fastball hitter, he’s looking for the heat.

Stephens: So what? He ain’t seen my heat.

everyone: All right, Meat. Give him your heat.

[Stephens throws it and Ken hits a home run.]

everyone: Well, Ken really hit the [expletive] out of that one, didn’t he?

  1. Hmmm… I smell Bull Durham. And I thought I’d mined troll hammer gold with Richard Hofstadter from 60 years ago.

  2. You can platoon them, or start Hofstadter and use “Bull Durham” in the late innings.

  3. Maybe. But my DH is Bob Altemeyer for cleanup.
