Immortalized -- someone's bought the domain name of the guy who posted that horrible post mocking Trig Palin and turned it into a redirect for the Down Syndrome Society donation page.

Now, Weasel Zippers calls the guy who did this a "hero." I'm not so sure. If it were a hero, an avenger, I'd guess that hero would want to nail Stuef with a bit of internet notoriety, recapitulating his awful post, before encouraging sympathy and support for those afflicted (and then redirecting to the donation page).

My suspicion is that Jack Stuef already owned his own named domain and is doing this himself as an attempt to placate advertisers.

See, he already added a half-baked, under-the-gun fake apology to his Trig post:

UPDATE: I regret this post and using the word “retarded” in a reference to Sarah Palin’s child. It’s not nice, and is not necessary, but I take responsibility for writing it. For those who came and are offended by this post: I’m sorry, of course. But I stand by my criticism of Sarah Palin using her child as a political prop.

–Jack Stuef

And yet advertisers continue to bail.

Thanks to Alice H.

By the way, I started to read other Wonkette posts, and the whole site is written like a gay gossip site. Every sentence ends in an exclamation point! And every statement is an unfunny campy sneer!

It's exhausting to read that kind of writing. It's not funny. It's just obnoxious.

It's all jumped-up hype! With exclamation points galore! Substituting for actual punchlines! For jokes! Or! Anything of interest, really!

If you can't be witty! Or interesting! Just throw an exclamation point at the end of your sentence! A punctuation-signaled poke in the ribs! So your readers know! That they were supposed to! Laugh!

Forced! Much?!

It is, as Jack Stuef might say, retarded.

That kind of forced are-we-having-fun-yet writing always reminds me of New Years Eve spent with people who don't want to be together. There's often an attempt by the hardier souls to try to convince everyone else they're having fun, when in fact they're all just depressed and would rather be elsewhere.

You know, twirl the noisemaker, randomly encourage people to do shots beyond their capacity, toss out an unconvincing (and also unconvinced) "Whoo-Hoo! Yeahhhhh!" Anything to distract from the dispiriting reality of the situation.

As a palate cleanser for the sleazy, seedy, ugly, useless, no-talent no-name no-account Jack Stuef, here's a guy tickling a baby penguin.

Thanks to gg.
