Rule 4 Action; Some Subtle, Some not so Subtle

Robert Stacy McCain is often busied attacking or counter-attacking those who attempt to belittle him or other Conservatives. Here he takes on David Frum. The sparring is right in the center of the ring.

But sometimes, McCain knows that he is biting off more than he can chew. So even though he tried to be subtle, my discerning eye caught this one right off. The target of the attack did as well. Here Stacy takes a pot shot at The TrogloPundit:
Well, you see how this disturbing pattern of pathology ineluctably progresses to the point where grown men actually care about the film adaptations of space fantasy novels.

Am I the only one who sees this whole cluster of behaviors, centered around the telltale abnormal interest in fictionalized distant worlds and/or ancient times, as constituting something that might be called Total Geek Syndrome?
Not only is this an attack on Lance, but also his twin brother.

Perhaps McCain hoped that he could jab this low blow unnoticed. After all, Todd and Lance total almost 13 feet tall while pushing nearly 500 pounds of twisted steel and sex appeal.

Lance noticed. And the TrogloPundit sent a not so subtle return message in answer to Stacy right in the post title.
Maybe I should volunteer to write R.S. McCain’s obituary.
Careful, Stacy, you have a family and loads of readers to think about.

McCain's blog motto is 'Hits is hits.' But I don't think this is what he is talking about.

I don't know if this counts or not, but I'm already working on a script for the Star Wars remake.

I really like that 'TrogloJedi' stuff. Now if you could just insert some version of that 'Think with your dipstick, Jimmy' guy...

Lance, is 'Jedi' the plural form of 'Jedus' or 'Jedum?'

No, no, Jedi is like moose. It's both singular and plural. You're thinking of "doofi," which is the plural form of "doofus."
