Incoming! Get Into The Troll Shelters!

I've been linked by one of the bigger leftwingnut blogs over my post about the Rasmussen poll on telephone intercepts. She's very angry that I didn't parse the question to her liking and declare it a fraudulent right-wing Rethuglican push-poll. Mickey Kaus' raging liberal brother Steven also linked me from the Huffington Post for the same complaint.

I wouldn't mention this, except to say, "We might experience some turbulence... and then explode," and also because I found this hysterically funny:

He needs [the space for including the full question asked by Rasmussen] for violating Atrios's copyright.

Emphasis kinda mine... she emphasizes the "Atrios copyright" part as part of a link to this post, in which I post Atrios' six thousand open threads and two-word posts.

Can one copyright the words "Open Thread"? Apparently one can, according to the law offices of Jane Hamscher, Esq.

After calling me a wingnut, Ms. Hamsher displays her reasonable, non-winguttish credentials:

I swear, between the slavish, Stalin-esque love for totalitarianism and their contempt for private property, free enterprise and market capitalism these people are all just fucking communists.

She also includes a picture of Uncle Joe, in case you missed the point.

Violating Atrios' copyright. It is. To Laugh.

Ms. Hamsher, Atrios has to frigging write some actual copy before he can copyright it.

PS, Ms. Hamsher: You use the word "fucking" in your post. That's AoSHQ copyrighted material, there. Well, not copyrighted per se, but I can get you on unfair-trade-practices rap for infringing on my "brand identity." Expect a shifty-looking bald-headed man bearing papers in a blue wrap-around in your near future.

Also, given your sad attempts to be funny, I think I'll attempt to emulate your own "comedic stylings" and give you a Jane Hamscher sort of nickname.

How about "Jane Hamster"?

Oooooh, that's gold, baby! That's funny-- Margaret Cho funny.

"Jane Hamster." Man, sometimes I don't know where I come up with these zingers. Zow! Pah-zing! Bam!

Endorsed On "Jane Hamster's" Own Site Update:

Heh. Ace and I have been arch-nemeses at three different fora, starting with Slate's Fray back in 1998. The meltdowns were indeed legendary, and he is without a doubt one of the most dyspeptic people I've ever encountered on the internets. He is the Joker to my Batman, I suppose.

He is also extremely funny, and quite intelligent. He's just made the decision to use his powers for evil.

Thanks! And by the way, I have no idea who you are. To be my arch-nemesis, don't I need to have some awareness you exist?

My Mistake: I do know who Heywood J. is, but I wouldn't consider him a nemesis, arch or otherwise. I wasn't Joker to his Batman. More like, I was Batman to his Space Monkey Gleep.
