It’s rare for a LQTM type like myself to laugh out loud, but N.Y. Post film critic Kyle Smith‘s 7.8 account of his dealings with Virginia-based publicists Keith Appell and Peter Robbio (whose firm, Creative Response Concepts, is conservative-friendly) provided an exception. Robbio-Appell didn’t allow Smith to attend a press screening of The Undefeated, the pro-Sarah Palin doc, because they’d invited his colleague, Lou Lumenick, and not Smith. Important distinction!

“What’s hilarious about all this is that Lou, who probably had a George McGovern bumper sticker on his lunchbox in college, is far less likely than I, a sensible conservative, am to see the wisdom in a Palin-praising documentary,” Smith wrote.
