    Default Don't Take Love Lessons from Ayn Rand

    Oh god, this is funny but cringing:

    Conservative Nerd Blasts Conservative-Nerd Ex On C-SPAN

    Guy gets revenge on ex-girlfriend on CSPAN2 | The Daily Caller - Breaking News, Opinion, Research, and Entertainment

    When the audience gathered for a Book TV discussion of Jonah Goldberg’s new book, “Proud to be Right,” they got more than your average CSPAN fare.

    It turns out panelists Todd Seavey and Helen Rittelmeyer, both contributors to Goldberg’s collection of essays by the next generation of conservatives, had dated at some point before appearing on this panel together. Seavey clearly had some unresolved issues with the break-up and decided to take them out on Rittelmeyer during the event, which was being televised on CSPAN2. The result is the wonkiest, nerdiest Internet revenge ever. Here is Seavey’s bizarre soliloquy, punctuated by a surprised Rittelmeyer’s short responses. Seavey’s attack starts in earnest at about 1:45

    I once criticised Mrs. Spotty in public. I could have warned him this wouldn't end well.

    Spotty was abstinent for longer than your average Irish Priest.
    Spotty. A pimple on the arse of politics.

    Have read this interview with her, she does come across like fun (if probably tasting like an ashtray):

    normblog: The normblog profile 264: Helen Rittelmeyer

    God knows what she saw in Legolas the Randist Elf there.

    Here's a Google cache of Rand-y Elf's personal ad:

    If Ms Rittelmeyer responded to this, she only has herself to blame.
