The little shit will probably pull it down so here it is:
I have formally demanded a retraction of, and apology for, this defamatory piece about me by National Review. I have retained counsel to pursue my legal rights.
The guy who wrote the offending article comparing the Penn State “investigation” of the football coach’s predilections for lads to the “investigation” of Michael Mann’s scientific practices….our old friend Mark Steyn. I commented at What’s Up With That:
“You don’t tug on Superman’s cape.”
Joy, joy, happy happy! I’ve always thought Mann was a tone-deaf idiot but never in my wildest dreams did I think he’d be dumb enough to sue, or even threaten to sue, a guy as bright as Steyn.
And, on balance, I rather suspect that Mann has absolutely no clue just how clever Mark actually is. We Canadians have had a ring side seat to Mark destroying the whole edifice of “speech regulation” in Canada. He didn’t just win, he and a few other people are directly responsible for the repeal of Canada’s anti-free speech laws.
But the best part is that Mark is wickedly funny. As we have learned, the “climate concerned community” has no sense of humour at all. Long before this goes to Court (as if) Mark will have a jolly excuse to make fun of Mikey.
It will not be pretty. But, Dear Lord, it will be fun.
Sue Mikey, sue!
I have beer, I have popcorn…Let the Games begin.
