Comment of the Day: Fire Chad Garrison


Today's comment from irate reader/lover of ferrets Karen Lee Copen, who can't believe that our Ass Clown of the Week title went to someone other than uber-blogger Chad Garrison.

As Copen writes in response to a post declaring Steve Spagnuolo the winner of this week's honor,

Chad Garrison should have won for his report on the ferret incident, and misuse of copyrighted photographs in order to illustrate his ridiculous article. I can't believe the Riverfront Times can still employs someone who absolutely lies about the news without having all of the facts. I also can't believe the picture of the ferret with the mask and chainsaw is still up as it belongs to the Pepsi corporation. You need to fire Chad Garrison.

What do you think, dear readers? Should pissing off ferret lovers be a firing offense? Or should we give Chad a raise for calling like he sees it -- and letting the rodent droppings fall where they may?
