As Twitchy reported yesterday, CNN’s ratings-challenged Piers Morgan took to Twitter to fawn over Bob Costas’ sermon on the evils of guns. “The 2nd amendment was devised with muskets in mind, not high-powered handguns & assault rifles,” the gun control fetishist tweeted.
In a beautiful smackdown heard ’round the Twitterverse, author and commentator Carol Roth went after Morgan for his holier-than-thou preaching. When he snootily asked what part of the Constitution addresses self-defense, Roth zinged, “right next to the word ‘muskets.’”
Piers’ response came 18 hours later. No, really: 18 hours!
Hey, give the man a break. Witty retorts are awfully hard, though Morgan could learn a thing or two from Roth.
Although Morgan took the better part of a day to respond to Roth, it wasn’t because he wasn’t on Twitter. He tweeted this a couple of hours before getting back to Roth.
Aww, poor Piers. He’s a martyr for the cause!
