Taibbi on Palin

Posted by on Tue, Nov 24, 2009 at 9:27 PM

Matt Taibbi is always good for a nice cathartic tirade, and this is a good one, but I really just wanted to post this paragraph:

... just as the antiwar crowd spent years being painted by the national press as weepy, unpatriotic pussies whose enthusiastic support is toxic to any serious presidential aspirant, so too will all of you afternoon-radio ignoramuses who seem bent on spending the next three years kicking and screaming your way up the eternal asshole of white resentment now find yourself and your political champions painted as knee-jerk loonies whose rabid irrationality is undeserving of the political center. And yes, that’s me saying that, but I’ve always been saying that, not just about Palin but about George Bush and all your other moron-heroes.

Up the Eternal Asshole of White Resentment should be the name of Glenn Beck's next book.

Up The Eternal Asshole of White Racists is my new favorite phrase. Would make a great band name.

@2: Clearly you haven't been reading The Stranger very long. The cover of the first issue after W's reelection would tell you otherwise.

And I agree with Anthony wholeheartedly on this one. I believe Beck has already revealed himself to be a racist (see admission of same wording on Fox & Friends), so why not? We all know it'd sell anyway.

Given SLOGs habit of realigning itself with whatever political voice is ascendant (i.e. wins elections), it's good to see you doing your homework for the next 3 years learning about the party about to take power.

And in both instances Dan Savage is Picasso...
