Don't Sugarcoat It Award for May 10.

Seriously, if I were to start vlogging it would be fun to sit around with four people contractually obligated to be less attractive than I am, and scream about what an awful person Paris Hilton is. How much does Nancy Grace make, anyway?

Well, not that any of us give a rat's behind about Paris, but Happy Jihad's House of Pancakes, with the perfect excuse--needing NOT to think about his dissertation--has written a lovely post about Ms. Hilton's plea for clemency. Actually, the letter to Governor Schwarzenegger is way funny in its own right, but Happy Jihad adds his own unique brand of flapjackin' goodness to the mix.

Apparently the letter begging for clemency, which the Jihad has the wisdom NOT to link, includes this indigestible nugget:

If the late Former President Gerald Ford could find it in his heart to pardon the late Former President Richard Nixon after his mistake(s), we undeniably support Paris Hilton being pardoned for her honest mistake as well, and we hope and expect The Governor will understand and grant this unusual but important request in good faith to Ms. Paris Whitney Hilton.

To which Happy Jihad replies:

Unusual, you betcha! And what is this Watergate shit? Do you know how unpopular Gerald Ford became after he pardoned Nixon? Real unpopular! And you are invoking that as part of your appeal to an elected official? Good luck, sugar tits.

I also appreciate his advice to Ms. Hilton regarding the fear and tears her impending jail time brings about:

You know what makes the scary times better? Booze!

Happy Jihad will be receiving via snail mail a "Vituperative, foul-mouthed, blogger of the Left" button from the Cafepress store. Washington Post columnist David Broder, who coined the phrase, and I, congratulate you.

And yeah, as usual with the DSCIA, leave your comments over at the winner's post. Thanks.
