FBI-Mueller Oped Spurs Vitriol Volcano

I am almost ready to abandon all hope of writing articles that are universally loved in Washington. My oped in The Hill, “Golden Boy Robert Mueller’s Forgotten Surveillance Crime Waves,” has spurred more outrage than any piece in a long time.   1500+ commenters on The Hill, Twitter, and Facebook harumphed that I was a despicable traitor, treason weasel, Alt-right,  vile & corrupt, crazy,  partisan hack, insane, hooligan, blowhard,   friggin hatchet job hack,  Alt-moron, bearded grifter, Trump cultist, Putin puppet, Russian bot,  bloviator, lackey,  lickspittle, as well as guilty of both Hitler-style propaganda and Stalin-style BS.  Biggest surprise – someone accused me of being a librarian – but I suspect they misspelled “libertarian.”  On the bright side, my name recognition with Hill readers appears to be rising.  Actually, some of the readers are talking of organizing a boycott of the paper for using my work.

    You damn librarians are all Putin puppets trying to tear down the very
    foundation of the police state that keeps us safe from the evil-doers.

      That’s a good thumbnail summary of the indictment.

    Mary Clemente got it right. So there’s a nugget in there. And I’m not sure I’d disagree with Sandy Shriver…..

      Appreciate the feedback. I wish the comments could be searched by word but since they are jpegs, apparently no solution on that one.

        Mary: “Written by James Bovard. Great.” Yes.

        Sandy: “JAMES BOVARD is a Hooligan.” Didn’t know you were such a soccer fanatic 😀

    You know you must be doing something right when both sides are shooting at you.

      Thanks for clarifying. I don’t think Mary Clemente smiled at my byline.
