Okay, I have a theory. Glen Dean and his blog Nashville Truth are not real, and are, in fact, a splendid troll.

As far back as May, even, I once commented to a friend that I found this post rather ironic, given the “commentary based in fact, rather than emotion” subtitle. Maybe I was more right than I knew.

Take for example this post, its comment thread (on which I eventually took the bait), and also a discussion thread over at Nashville is Talking. All the signs are there. The inflammatory tone. The frequent misspellings. The constant redirection away from any semblance of debate back into ad-hominem insults directed at whoever is silly enough to engage him.

Looking back on it, I feel silly that I didn’t realize this earlier. Good show, Glen!
