So what if I did?

I mean, if you're not offended by Hillary's accent, what's your point?

Actually, I have affected a (poor) Irish brogue. Married into an Irish family and it just got friendly smiles.

You're the one ducking the point that the Right Wing attack (peddled by Ann Althouse, lest we forget) was, once again, a lie.

Well, Ann made Crooks and Liars for a weird and telling outburst. First, Ann attempts to pull an O'Reilly and disprove her critics by simply caling them names like "nasty," and "vicious." Then, she gets all nasty on a young woman, berating her, assigning motives to her, exhibiting the very behavior she falsely attributes to others!

It's like watching a slow motion car wreck.

50:40 She accuses TAPPED of being nasty (before that, for five minutes, we nasty nasty liberals). 51 minutes is really the bizarreness and it goes on... ... losses-it/ ... 0&in=50:35

I post this with some hesitation but knowing Ann will be pushing her O'Reilly act on us locally at some point. So the let record stand.

What I couldn't figure out is why Ann thinks she was wronged by the passing mention of "the Jessica Valenti breast controversy."

Ann & Co. was in the wrong on that--so how/why does she get to feign outrage?

My take is this was a conscious effort by Ann to turn things on their head, to feign outrage and play the victim, when (she &) her pals who went after Jessica Valenti were in the wrong.

Take a close look at Ann's face as she savors the desired effect. She's smiling and pleased with her work--not angry or surprised or offended. Her purpose was to attack; this was not a spontaneous reaction.

Ann's Blogginhead counterpart was acting in good faith and clearly had not said anything offensive.
