Who is the Twit of the Month this month? Well, I have been looking at the people whom I have criticised over the years, and it occurred to me that there is one notable person in Irish circles who has never been Twit of the Month, though he has been criticised greatly and often here for the support he has given to the fraud and liar Daniel Cassidy, author of the ludicrous book, How The Irish Invented Slang.
This person is Peter Quinn, a writer from New York who never missed a chance to praise his friend Cassidy in public. Quinn and people like Quinn are to blame for ignorant people thinking that Cassidy was right and that there was a grain of truth inside all of the lies.
However, the person who lies down with dogs gets up with fleas. And people like Quinn, who give resounding praise to fakes and liars because they happen to be friends of theirs, are worthless people.
That’s why I’m happy to name Peter Quinn as the Twit of the Month in August 2018. It is well deserved.
