Bloomberg - Simply Stupid?

Oh, I an so insulted by this bit of trashy journalism on Bloomberg Weakly Business Week. Entitled "Romance Fiction: Getting Dirty in Dutch Country" it was written by some stupid muscle-bound twit with a fatal case of cranial rectal inversion.

The only facts in the article were these:

"In 2009 romance novel sales continued to defy industry trends, increasing to $1.4 billion, up $100 million, or 7.7 percent, from the previous year, according to Simba Information's annual Business of Consumer Book Publishing report. Romance now accounts for 14 percent of all works of fiction sold. Some 75 million people read at least one romance novel in 2009, and it's the top-performing category on the best-seller lists compiled by The New York Times, USA Today, and industry trade Publishers Weekly."

The rest sneered openly about the genre that is making all this money. I won't repeat the mud slung by this fool, but I will quote "Smart Bitches"  who called 'em like they saw 'em. "Every other sentence is a steaming pile of misleading patronizing ill-informed supercilious twatbaggery."

I found this simply insulting P.o.S. by following a link from the outraged Bitches' site. My link is above if you want to leave a nasty note of your own.

In closing I will quote my favorite comment: "It's not everyone that can insult such a wide range of Americans in one article."

If the Bloomberg editors had any brains, they would fire the damn fool.

One simply must find another sentence into which one can insert this compound insult. Rare indeed is the writer with the talent to generate such a trenchant comment. My congratulations to the individual who coined the word.

Rev. Burywell - I admit, the Smart Bitches do have a way with words.

I'm a little concerned that what I posted in haste has been ported to - to be repented at my leisure.

However, considering the depths of the insult to the Amish community, women in general and the 75 million readers of romance in particular - I think I'll let that wonderful word stand unchallenged.

Yours in etiology,

Love it. Twatbaggery is such an appropriate word.

It belongs in some kind of hall of fame. Not sure what kind - but some kind!
