Washington Post sportswriter Michael Tunison got canned this week after outing himself as a contributor to football blog Kissing Suzy Kolber. The journo revealed his identity on Monday in this blog post, which alludes to his "dick joke slingery" and features this delightful picture (above, right) of himself "totally fucking hammered" at the Super Bowl. Aghast Post higher-ups keen on protecting the reputation of a profession well known for its sobriety swiftly informed Tunison that drinking in bars "brought discredit to the paper" and fired him. The deep humiliation of being escorted out of the building by security, Tunison reports, was further amplified by the fact that Post political laugh machine Dana Milbank was there to see it all. You will be happy to know, however, that Tunison is buoying his spirits with thoughts about the upside of life off the Post payroll: "Sure, health insurance is nice, but it's no constant masturbation breaks." Uh, sic there. Also on the part where Dana Milbank is referred to as a "laugh machine."--Ed.
