Mail Call #14: Churlishly Yours

I write about economics and immediately my age and maturity are called into question. Though, hey, given that my photo appears with all of my columns, I suppose I should take it as a compliment of my youthful glow that this guy thinks I'm in my mid-20s (I'm 35, btw):

I'm astonished by your attempt to discredit such tremendous economic news, but I immediately recognize it as a reflection of your hatred for "Walker" and President Trump. You should recuse yourself from writing about either until you're willing to accept that both are capable of doing some very good things. 

I think in a few years, maybe by the time you're 30, you'll be able give even your most hated political villains, credit where due and not write such churlish immature nonsense.
This is a theme that continues throughout much of the hatred of my columns - that all of my criticism of Walker and/or Trump stems from me being a sore loser, and just hating any and all politicians with an (R) after their name.

That may be a pleasant enough fantasy, and a way to easily write off anything I may have to say regardless of its actual merits, but it ain't true. Then again, I'm just a churl, so what do I know?
