Quickie: Naughty or Nice?

It's interesting to encounter a little moral quandary and to ask oneself, "Just how much of an asshole am I?"

Well, it turns out that I'm enough of an asshole to report brag that I just received a Christmas* card with a special personalized message from Jeff Gannon! Unfortunately for you, I'm not enough of an asshole to scan it and post it here. There! Ethics!

One thing, though, Jeff: secular card? Bad form! What would Bill O'Reilly say?

*UPDATE: In the comments, Mr. Gannon corrects me, pointing out that it wasn't, after all, a Christmas card, and provides the full text of the card. And with that, the whole thing makes less sense than ever! Yay!

God, how embarrassed I am to walk into Jeff's sad little trap.

Cranio said...

divageek said...

Dang. I want to see it. Pretty please, with sugar on top?

dguzman said...

Oh PSP, you sparkly vixen, post it! We're breathless with anticipation!

Princess Sparkle Pony said...

Cranio, you are on beyond awesome!

As for the rest of y'all: as much as I'd love to, it just wouldn't be right.

DC said...

Ummm... He sent me a Kwanza card, guess he didn't want to offend you being an ingrained washington insider!

Did Gannon's card smell like Astroglide and poppers?

Matty Boy said...

Gannon is trying a "charm" offensive with the blogosphere. I got a post from "Jeff Gannon" on my humble blog a few weeks back when I posted a picture of him next to a picture of Scott McLellan. I called him a fake journalist and he whipped out his bona fides, so to speak.

It may not have been the real Jeff Gannon, but how sad would a person be if they spent their time pretending to be Jeff Gannon on the Internet?

Answer: very sad indeed.

I'm glad for Matty's explanation. For a moment I was afraid that the Princess was a Guckert client!

Jeff Gannon said...

Peter:

I didn't send you a Christmas card, it was just a card. It was a personal gesture, but since you have decided to make it public, why don't you post the contents?

If you don't, I would be happy to.

Cheers,

Jeff Gannon

Mr. Gannon,

Are you open to questions from the public at some forum of your choosing? Say, someplace local..are you near the Minneapolis airport?

Thanks,

LD

WhatEVER, Guckert.

What I wrote you:

Peter:

Last night at church, I was sharing my Thanksgiving testimony about how God has restored me with the publication of my book (as I know you are aware from the decorations at Amazon.com), membership in the National Press Club and other affirmations. In Job 42:12 it is written: "So the Lord bless the latter end of Job more than his beginning," So it has been for me.

I also point to Genesis 50:20: "But as for you, ye thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good," It is with that in mind that I write you to forgive you. I am also saying a prayer for your health and happiness.

May God bless you.

Jeff Gannon

...and there you have it.

Pony Pals, Is that special, or what?

machopeachew said...

What a creepy message. Goes to show that you should always demand that your whores keep quiet. They're so much less sexy when they speak/write.

Princess Sparkle Pony said...

Macho: both creepy and braggy. Although why he continues to brag about his self-published book is beyond me.

I wish I had an imaginary all powerful friend and I wish I could repeatedly quote a fantastical sacred text written in a style just vague enough to be able to use to justify everything I do and condemn people I don't like. Too bad I'm not 8 anymore. No fat man in a red suit is going to bring me presents either.

In Job 42:12 it is written: "So the Lord bless the latter end of Job more than his beginning"

so the Lord blessed Job's rear end? does this then explain Guckert's success as a sex worker?

Jon said...

In the spirit of loving kindness, might I suggest that Mr. Gannon is trying to "find himself"?

Having said that, I must add that "finding oneself" often involves making a public fool of oneself. Most healthy people, and many assholes, find watching someone "finding himself" distasteful.

It's still a worthy enterprise. Best of luck.

Finally, PSP, he addresses you by your non princess, "real" name. Do all gay people in DC know each other personally? That must be fun.

Princess Sparkle Pony said...

Jon, that's one of the funniest things: he obviously found my full name and address by doing a "who is" lookup on peteykins.com, the very same technique which was used by Aravosis (ugh, I hate using the A-word) to identify him as the owner of all those escort sites!

I agree with you that the whole thing smacks of "finding himself." But why me? I'm assuming that he's not going to send letters of forgiveness to all the people that made fun of him, because that would take years.

dguzman said...

Sometimes fact really IS stranger than fiction. Wow.

We like reading your blog PSP but this is the first time to comment. Gannon forgives you? All the people this fake reporter hurt with his writings and Bush backing. He needs to ask their forgiveness first! Quoting your bible Jeff. You getting on with Leviticus these days? Abominate anybody's ass recently? Wiser use of prayer would be for better book sales.

Kelster93 said...

According to Jeffy, "God has restored me with the publication of my book."

Mmmm'kay. Does this mean that God is now in the publishing business? Maybe He stepped in when Judith Regan got too busy smiting Rupert Murdoch with a plague of lawyers...

Salvation through movable type!

I'm going to start a movement called Gutenbergism and rename all the sacraments to fonts. Taking suggestions for which one gets renamed "Wingdings."

drew in sf said...

Well done, Jeff. Nothing says having a humble sense of proportion than comparing oneself to Job.

Matty Boy said...

Drew, Jeff is well versed in the book of Job.

Rim. Hand. Blow.

What have you.

drew in sf said...

Matty - happy to pitch you a low slow one, so you could slam it out of the park!

Good lord, is is there anything left that's NOT some sort of homoerotic double entendre?? :-)

Good lord, is is there anything left that's NOT some sort of homoerotic double entendre??

Was there ever? I seem to remember the whole point of my Early English Lit seminars in college that the whole language is nothing but a double entendre.

FranIAm said...

Sheesh - I am like only one blog degree of separation from Jeff.

Which provokes a big "eeew" out of me.

You and several of my blogfriends (one of whom I have actually met) have had comments from this asswipe.

And I do mean asswipe.

Testimony..... bwaahahahahahahahah!
