Over on my post about Thumbnail image for comment-of-week.jpgRachel Maddow's appearance on Ellen and her comments about getting hate mail about her looks/gender, Projector AJ points out something Rachel says at the end.

She wants to get hate mail. Just not mail about her appearance. So AJ steps in:

Ok, folks, you heard it -- Rachel wants hate mail ... but please write something she hasn't heard before.

... But keep it lite ... and make sure it's obviously meant to be funny.

Rachel, I bet your desk drawer is messier than an abandoned shack on the outskirts of Detroit.

Alright, whatta ya got, Projectors? Keep it funny and not demeaning, folks.

We want to know your opinion on this issue! While arguing about an opinion or idea is encouraged, personal attacks will not be tolerated. Please be respectful of others.

The editorial team will delete a comment that is off-topic, abusive, exceptionally incoherent, includes a slur or is soliciting and/or advertising.

AJ is a regular commenter and reader. We call our Bilerico family "Projectors" since that was the name readers chose for themselves years ago.

We consider Rachel a beautiful, cherished member of our family. The AJ comment-who dat? As for wanting to get hate mail, I would think an inquiring mind would consider it as gathering intelligence about the unintelligent. We can all do without the personal attacks, but myeh, it happens. Peabrains at play.

Obviously both of you missed the point of this post and exercise. Rachel on Ellen said she wanted more hate mail so AJ who is one of the bloggers on here decided to have fun with it and make a playful "hate" mail that wasn't demeaning to Rachel and done in a fun way. That's what Bil was asking the rest of us to do since Rachel was encouraging more hate mail.

Here is mine.Rachel you hate the right so much you'll make 3 left turns to get to a place instead of making one right turn.

That's the idea, Tim W! ... Good one!

Right, I did miss the point. I meant to say it was not clear to me what was being asked, or if she was being hit on. Thanks.

Yeah ... Think of this as a "celebrity roast" except we are doing it on a blog instead of on a TV show.

Rachel, your mom from the nursing home called. She said her broken hip is healing well and she will be out of traction soon. And she swears she didn't trip over your torque wrench on purpose. Will you PLEASE go back on speaking terms with her once she resumes overhauling your Harley?

Oh, and she said when she starts walking again, she would like her Army shoes back.

Rachel, is it true you are calling for a boycott of Buffalo Wild Wings ... because they will not agree to serve only left wings?

Rachel, we love it how we can always trust you to keep your eyes on the news. All four of them.

Let me see if I have this maybe center: Projector AJ (not to be confused with "Projectile AJ") wants friendly hate mail to satisfy Rachal Maddow. But friendly hate mail is an oxymoron (not to be confused with the oxy-candidates in those every-three days debates in the you-know-what party). People who hate mail don't sound very friendly to me, but what do I know? I adore Rachal Maddow and wouldn't think of hating her mail, regardless of how friendly it might be. There doesn't seem anything left to say here.
