Has it really come to this? Don Luskin threatening to sue Atrios for…well, what, exactly? Definition of character? Excessive snarkiness? Operating a blog without the express written consent of Major League Baseball? Hell if I know. Didn’t anyone learn from the O’Reilly-sues-Franken fiasco? I’m with Orcinus – if this is anything but unadulterated bluster, discovery ought to be a hoot. (Speaking of hoots, as always The Poor Man has the best response. Standard beverage warning applies. Oh, and I’m with Jesse.)
Let me be up front here: Luskin is a snivelling crybaby who deserves to be mocked mercilessly. Go ahead, big boy, sue me for that. Maybe you can have your mommy serve me the papers.
It will be interesting to see how the mainstream media plays this – and make no mistake, this will be in the mainstream media. I wonder if Luskin’s attorney will be as laughable and ungracious as O’Reilly’s were. Hard to imagine, but then so was this.
