I know you're sick of hearing "Slate this" and "Slate that," but I have to tell you the best thing about writing something for them. It's that each piece gets instant reader response on its own page in their forum, The Fray. I'll let my fans speak for themselves:
What kind of sick shit is this?There were favorable ones, too, but why bore you?
This isn't even mildly entertaining. The hatred leftists seem to possess for Christians is apparently endless. And this coming from the party that wants all discrimination to end. You are pathetic two-faced idiots that are in the end, going to pair-up with the radical Islamists to kill us all. Go to hell.
***Not very funny Laymo. The Lord kisses up to no one. Every knee shall bow to HIM in heaven and in earth. And btw i do have a sense of humor. ***I didn't know Slate hired 13-yr.-olds!
You have violated the first rule of good writing: write about what you know. This is especially true for satire. For satire to work at all, you need to know something about what you're mocking.
You've got the politics right, but your total lack of understanding of Christianity renders your piece a satire on your own POOR JOURNALISM.
As a political progressive and a teacher, I am sickened by your middle school level attempt at humor. I suggest you go back to journalism school(assuming you've been there at all) or go smoke a joint with Jayson Blair.
***It made me want to vomit, and I am not a right wing Christian! ***
Oh, and this morning, I got the following e-mail from David Grace of Hackensack, NJ:

TRANSCRIPT OF SATAN'S REMARKS AT A DEMOCRATIC PARTY FUND-RAISER, BOSTON, MA, AUGUST 2005
Thank you. And thank you for that heart felt introduction Mr. Dean. (UPRORIOUS CHEERS) Really, I appreciate it. Howard, I really like the way you scream! (CONTINUED CHEERS) Thank you. No really, I'm going to have a hard time torturing all of you for eternity after a welcome like this. Now will all of you please sit down, and shut the f**k up! (LAUGHTER)
