According to Fishbowl LA, as blogger and media critic Cathy Seipp lies in a hospital ICU bed, approaching the end of her noble battle against cancer, a grotesque subhuman being named Eliot Stein has posted an inane, score-settling fake letter on a site he registered in her name.
I glanced at it, then clicked away, sick to my stomach. Obviously, this thin-skinned ideological coward lacked the cojones to take her on when she was conscious, and so now takes the opportunity to have a morbid “last word.”
It is completely nauseating.
I guess there’s some right vs. left angle to this, (There isn’t: See the first comment below.) but if so, Eliot Stein shames his side of the argument no less than Ann Coulter shames hers. The only difference I can see is Ann Coulter makes a lot of money selling books, while I can’t imagine Stein enjoys success in doing much of anything.
I assume Eliot Stein has friends and family. I feel sorry for them. They must be looking for the exits about now — unlisted phone numbers, new e-mail addresses and so on to keep this lamebrain at a safe distance. One thing is for sure. Nobody will take note when this little tiny man passes away. Cockroaches don’t get funerals.
