Joe Klein has raised the bar dramatically for “stupidest columnist in the partisan media”
There's a new sheriff of stupid in town
Honestly, I thought the NYT Times had that sewn up. Somewhere between Paul Krugman (“if you’re not Keynesian, you’re a rich white hoarder of America’s money — AND seditious”), Bob Herbert (“if you’re not hunky-dory with the dramatic Democrat expansion of government, you’re a racist — AND seditious”), and Maureen Dowd (“if you’re a man, you’re a sexist — AND seditious”). Tom Friedman too, but honestly I can’t think of anything amusing to say about why he believes I’m seditious.
I thought SURELY one of that bunch of uneducate yahoos would be the stupidest columnist in America’s left-wing media. Perhaps before yesterday that was true.
But now Time Magazine’s Joe Klein raises the bar. According to him and his pal, New York magazine’s John Heilemann, Rush Limbaugh, Sarah Palin, and Glenn Beck are seditious. For apparently using the “regime” word to describe the Obama regime’s forceable takeover of the finance sector, the auto industry, and health care sector.
But Reverend Wright and Hillary Clinton are NOT seditous. “G-Damn America” is not seditious, nor is screaming into a microphone “we have a right to disagree with any administration”.
Oh, and Tea Party Americans are racist because Barack is black and his middle name is Hussein. [yes, I’m still trying to figure that one out] Heilleman actually said the only “triggering event” in the last 15 months was the election of Barack. I guess he slept thru cap-and-trade, porkulus, and the year-long debate over health-care takeover culminated in bought votes and parliamentary parlor tricks. He may not have noticed a rogue’s gallery of czars and cabinet officers that include pedophiles, thieves, racists, and communists.
Hey Joe and John. Pull my finger.
