"I am a childbirth labor coach, a published author in the childbirth field, and a lactation consultant; my husband is a physician who has, until this election, always voted Republican . . ."OK, "Audrey," I just figured out that you remarried, and your last name has changed since you published that circumcision book in 1985.
Indeed, your husband is a physician who voted for Bush twice, and who expressed support for Ron Paul in December 2007. I know that your husband is from a neighboring state, and that you moved to your rural home (with a pond) in September 2006.
Of course, you can imagine my surprise to learn that, since the early 1990s, you've become quite a popular author -- indeed, quite an entrepreneur -- under yet another pseudonym.
Given my own libertarian tendencies, I'm quite sympathetic toward your husband, the physician. But you, ma'am, have been a very, very naughty woman.
And I think we both know what the doctor would prescribe for that, don't we?
Stick to your other business, ma'am. Discipline is the secret to success.
By the way, about six hours ago, I was prepared to stomp you like a cockroach, but when I saw that the Good Doctor was a Ron Paul man, my wrath cooled somewhat.
Really, though, you need to be more careful, both in your choice of enemies and in your use of online aliases. It really wasn't that difficult.
UPDATE 2 a.m.: In the comments, Angie in AK asks:
"Are you going to cut this loon some slack because her husband is a Ron Paul man?"Yeah. Yeah, I am. Look, earlier Tuesday afternoon, I was reading something Dr. Zero wrote at the Green Room, where he said something favorable about the Bush administration, and it got under my skin:
[O]ne can easily argue that George W. Bush was a very bad president and that one of the worst aspects of his presidency was that Bush confused people about the meaning of "conservatism" in a way that damaged the Republican Party and made possible Obama's election. . . .A lot of people got away from their "A-game," politically, during the Bush era. This misguided "Audrey" seems to have been among those who focused on Palin as a sort of scapegoat for their frustrations. There is no reason, however, that "Audrey's" husband and children should be made to suffer -- and trust me, if I published everything I've got, it would be tres embarrassment -- for her irrationality.
It must be recognized the extent to which the Bush administration was a failure, or we risk further damage from future repetitions.
I'm guessing that the past 36 hours haven't been pleasant for her. However, unlike Jesse Griffin, "Audrey" has made no threats or boasts and, indeed, she hasn't posted anything else at all on her blog.
If she's willing to cease her absurd attacks on the Palin family -- and I wrote an e-mail to her husband to this effect -- I'm willing to stop here. My research is filed away, if further provocation should require me to reconsider whether mercy has been misinterpreted as weakness.
There is no need to be sadistic. Having taken her to the woodshed, I hope this will suffice.
