I’ve had a fun day! Over at my Bernstein Crisis Management Blog, I posted an open letter to Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal, the increasingly infamous teller of tall tales about his alleged Vietnam service. The shy title of my blog post?
Dear Richard Blumenthal: You’re a Liar
Practicing what I preach, I then Tweeted about it and also let some media who have interviewed me in the past know about it. In the context of “common causes make for strange companions,” one of those media outlets was the Laura Ingraham show, and they re-ran my blog post on their blog and are mentioning it in their ezine.
So far Mr. Blumenthal hasn’t called to indicate he accepted the challenge with which I closed the blog piece. What a surprise.
