Real Readers Write

Another interesting and articulate comment from a reader (the layout and light editing are mine):

In today's (06/18) diatribe on "Uncle Hillty," Flapjack Phil finally exposed the reason for his fixation on Hilton Kelly. There were several apparent reasons for Klein's dislike of the man ranging from pure racism, to wingnut ideology, or infatuation, perhaps even resentment that Kelly is more adept at developing a non-profit organization.

Klein wrote:

"The bottom line - Hilton Kelly seemingly does what he wants - and the media is gaga over him. It is better TV to put a man on TV that wears a hat, yells at politicos nonsense and / or seemingly can spew out crazy comments and be taken seriously."

 With the exception of one small segment of this sentence you could substitute Klein's name and not notice the difference, but that one small segment tells the tale of why Klein persists in his dogged pursuit and attack on Kelly. That segment is "and the media is gaga over him."

Consider this sentence:

The bottom line - Philip Klein seemingly does what he wants. It is better TV to put a man on TV that wears a hat, yells at politicos nonsense and / or seemingly can spew out crazy comments and be taken seriously.

Philip is consumed with jealousy over the attention the media gives Kelly. Petty jealousy is so unattractive.

An excellent observation.
