David Tatum compares women to dogs? Tatum was talking about Kristen Konate's offering to buy a ticket to Africa (to the country of her, Konate's, choice) for Virginia Flagger Karen Cooper.
Konate, remember, is the woman who threw tantrums over the I-95 Battle Flag memorial (which, btw, is still there, and quite visible, and getting visibler all the time -- and no great calamity has befallen Richmond as a result). She also put her own address online and then accused a couple of Virginia Flaggers of doing it.
So at his new blog, "Bazzackwards" (lol!) Tatum takes her to task for her remarks about Karen.
David concludes the post with, "Now then had a Flagger said something like that Brooks would be all over it, but since it was one of his lackeys it's OK ! Simpson, ya need to put a muzzle on yer mutt !"
So in his current News and Notes rant (amazing what ths learned professor considers to be news iddinit?), Simpson attempts some keister-covering with, "Anyone who goes to the comment in question can see that I reacted to the comment, which I thought was, to use the words of Ms. Chastain, “inappropriate.”"
Look at this snot-slick glibness, chirren, and learn. He did indeed react to the comment, but he is NOW trying to palm off the notion that his "reaction"(his comment) included his "thought" that Konate's statement was "inappropriate."
So he "thought" it was inappropriate? So the heck WHAT? He expects his comment thread viewers to READ HIS FLIPPIN' MIND? If he THOUGHT it was "inappropriate," why didn't he POST that it was inappropriate?
In any case, for whatever reason, he didn't post that thought. Andy Hall posted it. What Simpson did was to attack Karen Cooper. Said he,
"Let's not let our anger get the best of us. What Karen Cooper says speaks for itself."

So Simpson "fights back" by saying David called a woman a dog. Well, no, he called her a mutt, which CAN mean dog. It can ALSO meant something ELSE:
Do you suppose a learned college professor doesn't KNOW this? I mean, you'd think someone who loves to denigrate other people's intelligence the way he does would be familiar with all the put-downs, wouldn't you?
Or is he continuing to assassinate his own intelligence for the sake of denigrating Tatum, an outspoken Southern heritage supporter?
David's right, but he doesn't go far enough. If a Flagger or supporter had said said the same thing, Simpson would be MORE than "all over it." The nails-on-a-blackboard screeching reverberating across the floggosphere from central Arizona would make your skin crawl...
And the stench of hypocrisy that accompanies it would burn your rhinal cavities raw....
In fact, it already does.
