And I like it [for the especially clueless – I am not a fan of Amanda’s style of prose – I AM glad she decided to step up to the plate and tell her version of events, even if I don’t agree with the majority of her arguments]
I could argue with Amanda until I foam at the mouth – over a number of points – but I will also argue, also until I foam at the mouth, that the way she was treated was despicable.
The phrase “dirty politics” doesn’t do the current state of affairs justice. It should be “filthy politics,” “choking-on-my-own-vomit politics,” at the very least. And, as I said earlier, I don’t know if I could handle that sort of thing.
I’d rather be raked over the coals for a work of fiction I wrote.
And I’ll be careful what I wish for, yes.
