In a March 23 column, Alex Koppelman, arts and entertainment editor for Dragonfire, Drexel University's interactive online journal, catalogued further inflammatory comments made on the Republican community weblog RedState by "Augustine," which is the pseudonym reportedly used by Ben Domenech, the Republican activist hired to launch the Red America weblog on washingtonpost.com. These include the following:

  • Conservative blogger Andrew Sullivan, who is gay, "huffily quits the Republican Party every three months, and the Roman Catholic Church every six" and "perhaps ... needs a woman to give him some stability."
  • Teresa Heinz Kerry, wife of 2004 Democratic presidential candidate Sen. John F. Kerry, "ends up looking like an oddly shaped egotistical ketchup-colored muppet" and is "a modern day Miss Havisham, shawl and all."
  • Liberal filmmaker Michael Moore is "Fatty Fat Fat Fat," a "blimp that crashed into the Fleet Center [in Boston and] caused nearly $16 million in damage."
  • The Republican senators who joined an agreement averting a Senate showdown over the use of filibusters on judicial nominations are "spineless wussyboys." "[T]he hypocritical Lindsey Graham, a less virile John Edwards" has "already shown a propensity to sell out his party for camera time and a bottle of hair gel," and "staff puppet Lincoln Chafee['s] ... cranium would explode if he had one actual substantive thought."
  • Televangelist Pat Robertson is a "Whacked Out Loon" and "a senile, crazy old fool."
