Reynolds bedongs himself

Glenn Reynolds is beclowning around trying to defend himself against the justified mockery his insipid column on assassinating civilians engendered around Blogtopia, now that it leaked into the mainstream media with an op-ed by Paul Campos. It's no surprise Reynolds was reduced to inarticulate and incomprehensible analogies to justify the unjustifiable premise of his post.

In fact, Reynolds was dancing around faster than the hapless fool dodging the gunslinger's bullets in an old time Western when one of his more intelligent supporters came up with this new word -- beclowned -- that he immediately co-opted to the delight of his fan base. Now Reynolds and his remaining loyalists are playing with their new insult with a zeal usually reserved for pubescent boys who discovered masturbation feels good.

Well, anyone can play at stupid insult coinage so I give you bedonged, which means starving the brain cells by concentrating one's energy on the appendage usually reserved for pissing contests, to the point where tangential and irrelevant talking points and an unnatural fixation on silly words substitutes for actual intellectual debate and leads those who are afflicted by the condition to believe they have scored some sort of victory.

Call me consumed with my own cleverness, but I think it's a lot better word than beclowned and rather fits the situation perfectly.
