Cuccinelli Spokesman: Epps Lacks 'Professionallism' (Sic)

More

Regarding my post yesterday, "How Ken Cuccinelli Distorts the Meaning of 'Liberty'," I just received this email from Virginia Attorney General Cuccinelli's spokesman, Brian Gottstein:

Your clear misrepresentation of the AG's position in your article about the Snyder case versus SB1120 after our thorough explanation (and one that you could have researched and confirmed for yourself) of how Snyder would be offensive to the First Amendment, while the Senate bill was not (clear time, place, and manner restrictions), stretches all bounds of truth and legal scholarship.

Normally, I would take someone thanking me for my professionallism [sic] as a compliment.  However, coming from someone who apparently does not know what professionalism means, I cannot accept it as one.
