President Scalzi blames GOP gains on stupid old white people, mum on pay raise for SFWA executive director

Science fiction author John Scalzi, president of the Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers of America (SFWA), has posted a humorous but science fictional piece about Election 2010. Here’s a snippet:
Dear Democrats: You managed to lose the House in historic proportions to a party whose strategy was to harness the inchoate anger of old white people so stupid that they don’t sense the inherent contradiction of screaming about a smaller government whilst cashing their federal checks. You are morons. Please find someone who can play this game and put them in charge of your electoral strategy, because what you’re doing now isn’t working. Also, henceforth, every time you whine about Fox News and shadowy financiers of the Tea Party, we get to beat you with a hammer. This is the political landscape now. Deal with it.
Sadly, President Scalzi doesn’t reveal whether HIS agenda includes an increase in SFWA taxes membership fees so that the organization can pay its executive director a higher hourly wage. The last time I checked the paperwork, the executive director of SFWA was paid less than $28,000 per year.

  1. Scalzi's part of the click that ran Elizabeth Moon out of Wiscon. If you write something that doesn't fit into their dream of a worldwide socialist utopia, they label you a bigot or racist. Morons. Go Marco!
