I wasn't going to say anything about this inane piece in the Washington Post by Charlotte Allen about the teeny-bopper kinda love the ladies have to Barack Obama ("We Scream, We Swoon. How Dumb Can We Get?")--I mean, it was so stupid it passed out of my head about as fast as my daily horoscope--but then I see where John Pomfret, the Outlook editor who commissioned it, was quoted as saying the piece was tongue-in-cheek.
To which I can only reply: No, John, it wasn't tongue-in-cheek. It was head-up-ass.
I swear, weeks like this I find myself thinking newspapers can't die fast enough. It's not like people can't be sublimely stupid on the Internet, but at least they don't kill trees doing it.
