Truly an honor, especially coming from the Snarling Marmot. Words may fail Amy -- so she claims -- but when a politician shows his hindquarters, the Marmot is not mute.

The recent exploits of state Sen. Gary Nodler (R-Joplin), as covered in this space and in The Turner Report, were too much for La Marmot, who snarled:

What a prince of a guy, huh? He's also demanding an apology from the caretaker of the developmentally disabled group for calling him on his assholitry. As if that weren't enough, Nodler went so far as to take a lie detector test, at his own expense, to prove the veracity of his side of the story. Mind you he tried to get both the Missouri State Police and the Joplin Globe to pay for said test. Methinks the distinguished gentleman doth protest too much.

Damn. How do you not admire someone who created the word "assholitry"?

And so Gary Nodler wins the Snarling Marmot's Asshat of the Day award -- and he's in the running for Asshat of the Month honors. Sweet.
