Sometime the shrill whinging of America's most famous Gay Catholic Conservative Drama Queen is best served unadorned:
I’ve done what I could in this space to avoid the subject of Hillary Clinton. I don’t want to be the perennial turd in the punchbowl. I’d hoped we’d finally seen the last of that name in public life — it’s been a long quarter of a century — and that we could all move on. Alas, no. Her daughter (angels and ministers of grace defend us) seems to be positioning herself for a political career. And Clinton herself duly emerged last week for a fawning, rapturous reception at the Women in the World conference in New York City.The question of why anyone, anywhere is paying this pissy little fop to write anything is no longer terribly high on my list.
“But … but … but …” her deluded fans insist, “she won the popular vote!” But that’s precisely my point. Any candidate who can win the popular vote by nearly 3 million votes and still manage to lose the Electoral College by 304 to 227 is so profoundly incompetent, so miserably useless as a politician, she should be drummed out of the party under a welter of derision...
After all, in a media environment so utterly corrupt that a meathead like Joe Scarborough has his own three-hour show, Bill Kristol collects a paycheck from ABC and MSNBC as a respected foreign policy analyst, and a clownagerie (tm driftglass) that includes freaks like Jeffrey Lord-Have-Mercy, Hugh Hewitt, Charlie Sykes an Joe "Deadbeat" Walsh all have reserved seating at the nation's media table, it is not hard to believe that one of Mr. Sullivan's cronies at New York Magazine would make sure he had a cozy place at the wingnut welfare trough.
A place wide enough so that Mr. Sullivan could take out his fury at being passed over for the Greatest Wingnut Welfare Prize Of All --
The New York Times hired Wall Street Journal deputy editor Bret Stephens as its newest opinion columnist, claiming he “will bring a new perspective to bear on the news.” Stephens has a long history of promoting misinformation, including on climate science, foreign policy, and sexual assault.-- by publicly beating up on an old lady and her daughter.
As I said, after over a decade of documenting his drivel, Mr. Sullivan is no longer terribly high on my list.
But he's still on it.
Oh yes he is.
