The Catholic League Responds To My Obama Bobblehead Writeup
Earlier today, I posted Catholic League irritant Bill Donohue's video in which he blew steam about the resurrection of Andres Serrano's Piss Christ work, which is being shown in a NYC gallery.
I talked about how, in the video, Donohue unveiled his own master opus, a bobblehead of President Obama steeped in cocky doody--though Donohue wussed out, only managing to place the doll in brown Play-Doh.
Well, a rep from the League quickly struck back at me with this blistering email:

Just wanted you to know the correct term is 'magnum opus,' not 'master opus.'
Thanks. Jeff Field Director of Communications Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights"
That was actually a pretty cute reply.
It didn't state any objection to my having called Donohue a blowhard, not to mention my noting that he regularly shoots crap out of his mouth, it only alluded to a relatively minor linguistic gaffe.
But I felt equally capricious and wrote back:
"No, the correct term for your profound leader is no doubt Magnum ice cream bars."
