"Ego and stupidity -- tougher than granite."
You know, I got shit to do. I have pages to draw. I have stories to write. I have grass to cut. I have a roll of Grands biscuits that expires in approximately 47 minutes. But just like how, with the red shoes, people couldn't stop clapping, Rob Granito continues to create a gaper's delay as he and his wife completely wreck their lives. Man, I should make a Wonder Woman tag and a Rob Granito tag just so I can keep track of how much I'm posting about these two things lately.
Colleen Doran recently wrote on her blog last week about Rob Granito in a post entitled, Everything that comes out of Rob Granito's mouth smells like ass and cheese doodles
. Doran isn't late to the party. That screen grab of Granito talking about how great it was to work with the late, great, and sorely missed Dwayne McDuffie? That was hers. She screencapped it, others found it, and it took off. Doran does a little criticizing of Granito, but its the comments by Sara Teague that bring out the knives. I'll wait here while you read it.
Oh, you're back! Great! Well, Alison Granito decided to write Doran and express her feelings about the post. Let's read it together, shall we?Mrs. Doran,
I have but one thing to ask you. And that is.. who do you think you are? Who do you think YOU are? As a fellow woman and mother, I am shocked at your additude, to prove you are some sort of "tough chick" personality. I was sent your column on Mr. Granito ("Everything that comes out of Rob Granito's mouth...") and am sickened and offended.
Mr. Granito has taken the blame for his honest mistakes, but your column goes beyond the call of duty with your offensive, insulting and degrading remarks. Comparing Mr. Rob Granito to a psychopath stalker. This is a man who has spent his life drawing in the pursuits of art and sharing it with his fans. Yes, he has made a mistake. Where is his second chance?Are you saying he doesnt get one? Is there an exception now because YOU feel ignored?
You feel ignored because the hottest cartoon and comic web sites didnt cover Colleen. They covered Mr. Granito, who provokes thought and discussion from the cartoon/comic strip industry. I am sorry you were ignored but this attack on Mr. Granito is sick, uncalled for, and as a woman, I am ashamed of you. Who do you think you are to launch a campaign to defraud and slander Mr. Rob Granito?
I hate to give you a piece of my mind like this because I know what it is like to be a working woman! But you crossed the line and I believe it was to prove some sort of coolness with the kids and tough girl act. But you are hurting a man who has real feelings. And real talent.
Please take down that offensive article and try opening your heart to forgiveness. I see a lot of resentment due to Mr. Granito's sudden fame. We cannot control what the media does, Coleen.
Wow. I quote LFG from EQ2Flames
in an epic discussion on the Rate-A-Retard board -- "He's like a retarded treasure chest."
