Her name is K-Lo and she dances on the sand
On the heels of Friday's Wonkette linkage, a mysterious post appeared in the comments board for the "Jarhead" review. The author left behind a "K-Lo" moniker. Could it be the work of Kathryn Jean Lopez, the editor of the National Review's online edition? You be the judge. The post and my response can be found here.
I'll be honest, I'm not a reader of conservative political magazines. Just take a look around here if you doubt it. So until this morning I'd never heard of Lopez. Still, it's fun to assume that someone so far removed from Portland could find this blog, get upset over something written on it and get all snarky. My contacts in DC tell me it's either Lopez or a dead-on parody. From the post:
"Since you have no understanding of mental illness, drug addiction, or movies, I found you tiresome and trite. Thank God I live 3000 miles away from your stereotyping and cliched person."
Thanks, K-Lo. I can't imagine you'll be back to read any of this but, really, thanks for making my day. Everytime an obscure Portland blogger is insulted by a nationally-syndicated columnist/NRO editor, an angel smokes crystal meth.
But not crack. That would just be absurd, wouldn't it?
