Neil Gaiman Is Worth 45,000 Matt Deans

Posted by Phoenix Woman on May 4, 2011

Witness as, in the course of his attacks on the popularly-mandated Minnesota Legacy Amendment, a man not worthy of being Neil Gaiman’s bootscraper struts like a little peacock, attempting to lob ridiculously ripe stinkbombs at one of the finest living novelists in the English language:

House Majority Leader Matt Dean said he reminded Urdahl of the “importance of making sure he has [Republican] caucus support” for Legacy funding for arts and cultural heritage projects, an area of spending that Dean acknowledged had rankled some Republicans. “MPR, it’s safe to say, has been a concern in the past,” said Dean.

Dean also singled out a $45,000 payment of Legacy money that was made last year to science fiction writer Neil Gaiman for a four-hour speaking appearance. Dean said that Gaiman, “who I hate,” was a “pencil-necked little weasel who stole $45,000 from the state of Minnesota.”

What is your major malfunction, Matt Dean? I mean, really? Are cheap shots wrapped in non sequiturs your strong suit, or what?

Are you jealous that Gaiman’s fantasy writings are much better than your party’s fantasy writings — such as that pathetic excuse for a budget bill your party had Accenture write? And for this they put you in charge of the House? And as for your partners in crime at the StarTribune, who are trying to stick up the state’s taxpayers for $791 million for a new Vikings stadium (that works out to 17,577.77 four-hour appearances by Neil Gaiman, or 17,250.77 more appearances than the Vikings will make in that stadium during its likely thirty-year lifespan), they should be ashamed of themselves for their hypocrisy as well as their facilitating your idiocy.

What’s next, attacking Terry Pratchett?
