Local personality Bruce Bateman is about to become very famous in the Mainland. In a recent entry, Dailykos writer Dengre recounts some comments from one of Mr. Bateman's latest Saipan Tribune columns. The title is "Meet the face of drunken evil..."
I'm not going to reprint what Bruce wrote or what Dengre wrote about Bruce, but I will say that as a result of Dengre's post, there is an online movement to lobby Keith Olbermann to make Bruce one of his "Worst Persons in the World."
They are asking people to write to Olbermann with "Bruce Bateman Nominee for Worst Person" in the subject line. They ask you to email your nomination to firstname.lastname@example.org.
I'm not going to defend or attack Bruce's words. In fact, I doubt if he cares that people across the US are trying to get him named as "The Worst Person in the World."
I just want to congatulate him for making it to the Big Time! Go Bruce!
The Bald Wonder wrote a post about Bruce hitting the Big Time. I have to agree with what Jeff says. Although he has an "off" sense of humor, Bruce is a pretty good guy. In fact, I think a lot of the stuff he writes he writes with the express intent of pissing off people like Dengre.
