Somewhere tonight, a conservative blog intern is thanking FSM that Connie Schultz is a better human being than I.

Southern Beale at First Draft:

Connie Schultz is a Pulitzer Prize-winning syndicated columnist at the Cleveland Plain Dealer. On her Facebook page she posted the following:

Email from conservative blogger, dated July 9, 2012:

Dear Ms. Shultz,

We are doing an expose on journalists in the elite media who socialize with elected officials they are assigned to cover. We have found numerous photos of you with Sen. Sherrod Brown. In one of them, you appear to be hugging him.

Care to comment?


Response, dated July 10, 2012:

Dear Mr. [Name Deleted]:

I am surprised you did not find a photo of me kissing U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown so hard he passes out from lack of oxygen. He’s really cute.

He’s also my husband.

You know that, right?

Connie Schultz

Schultz goes on to say in the comments on the Facebook post that she basically deleted the writer’s name and withheld the name of his publication because he’s an intern and she wants him to learn the right lessons from this without having his career prematurely ruined. Given the unprofessional tone of the correspondence, if it’d been me, I might not have been so forgiving.



  1. Too funny. Glade to hear how Schultz handled it; no harm, no foul.

    • As I say, she’s apparently a better human being than I.
