Michael Scanlon was "teen freakzoid"

A Wonkette operative's memory is jogged regarding her former high school classmate, public-relations consultant and former aide to House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, Michael Scanlon:


I checked the photo, and his graduation date, and it dawned on me that this was the very same fucking asshole who once, while wandering round drunk after leaving a party that had been busted up by the cops, threatened me by waiving a large tree limb in my face and saying "If you ever put a curse on my sister again, I'm going to kill you." Not only was he an asshole and a bully, he was also delusional. I'm not sure where he got the idea that I had put a curse on his sister but he apparently found teenagers dressed all in black to be mysterious and scary, even when they were 5'2" tall 14 year old girls.
As any goth girl will tell you, revenge is a dish best served cold.
