Take A Shot At Fisking Nick!

You've seen all of the Northern Alliance gang do it -- me, Mitch, King, the guys at Powerline -- and hell, the Fraters Libertas gang seems to live for it. Now you can join in the fun, too! Mitch Berg has started the first Fisk Nick Coleman contest at Shot In The Dark, giving his readers an opportunity to take their own shots at the man Minnesotans love to hate hate to read.

How do you enter? It's easy:

1. Read Nick Coleman's latest column* (I haven't read it yet, but I'll wager it has something to do with the plight of the working stiff, the evil greed of Republicans, or how Nick Knows Stuff You Don't)

2. Pick one sentence or paragraph you feel desperately needs fisking

3. Leave your best fisking of that passage in a comment on Mitch's post.

That's it, but get your entries in as soon as possible -- Mitch will be closing the contest on Friday night. Don't miss out on putting your own pin into one of the biggest overblown balloons in the Twin Cities media scene. Good luck!

* - Northern Alliance is not responsible for any brain damage that might occur as a result of extended exposure to Nick Coleman. Symptoms include incoherent sputtering, humming the "Union Label" lullaby that Al Gore's mother sang to him as a baby, or incomprehensible nostalgia for union violence. If any of these symptoms appear, please go immediately to your closest Northern Alliance blog for an immediate antidote.
