The Paragraph of the Year Award
Camille does not fail to deliver - again
This morning, Drudge links up to Camille Paglia’s latest column. Contained within is one of the most hilarious – and accurate – sequence of sentences to be penned this election season:
The mountain of rubbish poured out about Palin over the past month would rival Everest. What a disgrace for our jabbering army of liberal journalists and commentators, too many of whom behaved like snippy jackasses. The bourgeois conventionalism and rank snobbery of these alleged humanitarians stank up the place. As for Palin’s brutally edited interviews with Charlie Gibson and that viper, Katie Couric, don’t we all know that the best bits ended up on the cutting-room floor? Something has gone seriously wrong with Democratic ideology, which seems to have become a candied set of holier-than-thou bromides attached like tutti-frutti to a quivering green Jell-O mold of adolescent sentimentality.
BWAHAHAHA! “Holier-than-thou bromides attached like tutti-frutti to a quivering green Jell-O mold of adolescent sentimentality” Man, is there a more accurate depiction of Democryte thinking anywhere?
The remainder of the column is primarily letters from fans and Paglia’s responses – the 2nd page is the meat of the column. I’d say you can skim over the 1st, 3rd and 4th pages – 2 is the key.
