Did you know Daily Caller founder Tucker Carlson has a 44-year-old brother and his name is Buckley Swanson Peck Carlson? It’s true. We were reminded of this fact after Rosie Gray at BuzzFeed published an email Buckley sent to a Bill de Blasio spokeswoman today. The message manages to be both sexist (Buckley refers to the spokeswoman as “LabiaFace”) and incompetent (he accidentally CC’d the very spokeswoman he was referring to). Here it is:
From: Buckley Carlson
Sent: Wednesday, March 25, 2015 3:18 PM
To: Tucker Carlson; Spitalnick, Amy (OMB)
Subject: Re: Correction Needed
Great response. Whiny little self-righteous bitch. "Appalling?"
And with such an ironic name, too…Spitalnick? Ironic because you just know she has extreme dick-fright; no chance has this girl ever had a pearl necklace. Spoogeneck? I don't think so. More like LabiaFace.
The email came after the spokeswoman, Amy Spitalnick, requested a correction in a Daily Caller story about her boss’s comments about the federal transportation budget. The item suggested de Blasio and President Obama, both Democrats, were in disagreement about what constituted adequate funding. Spitalnick disputed this in several emails between her, the story’s author and editor, and eventually Tucker Carlson. Buckley’s “dick-fright” comments were in response to Carlson’s last email to Spitalnick, in which he stated that her “tone” was “whiny and annoying.”
A recent version of Buckley’s résumé, which used to be available on his (now-deleted) personal website, described him as “a crisis communications media consultant, writer and political strategist.” The same document, seen below, indicates he owns “an elderly Maine Coon cat, a Golden Retriever, and a Finnish Spitz.”
Buckley Swanson Peck Carlson. Nice guy.
