Dr Rachael Dunlop, or Dr. Rachie, is one of the hosts of the Skeptic Zone podcast. I had the pleasure of meeting her once back in September at a meeting of The Jolly Thirteen, where she interviewed me for the podcast (episode #51).
Now last month, I wrote about these Shorty Awards, a silly new award voted on by Twitter users because Dr. Rachie was nominated for their health education category and was competing with not one but two total quacks, Joseph Mercola and Mike Adams. Adams was quickly disqualified because his cult members cheated in large numbers by ballet stuffing so he could win this irrelevant award. Then either he or Mercola (they’re pretty indistinguishable) threw a public temper tantrum by calling Dr. Rachie fat. Oo, I haven’t heard an insult that good since nursery school.
Anyway now it’s over and in what’s becoming a growing theme these days, the skeptic ended up on top.
