I got hosed out of 2 Mediaite stories this morning by quicker colleagues, but cannot stand to suffer from writeus interruptus, so I’ll splooge my 2 cents worth here.
First, Joe Scarborough compared conservatives to the Jews in the Warsaw Ghetto on Morning Joe today, and my Chief-a-roony Rachel Sklar had a post up before I could say “What the fuck?” Let me just say that this is a ridiculous extension of the right’s losing “victim” strategy. You know, the one where any response to their batshit crazy “dissent” is akin to “1984,” or “Waterworld,” or whatever futuristic cautionary tale strikes the fancy? “It’s made from TEA BAGS! Soylent Green is TEA BAGS!!!”
Then, there’s the NY Post’s joke of a story about Eliot Spritzer mulling a run for Comptroller, or Senator, or Mongering Czar, or whatever. The piece was completely fact-free, and had all the attribution of a man-on-the-street gaggle at a Starbucks. So, what’s the deal?
Well, Spitzer gets a free trial balloon out of the deal, and Ashley Dupre gets to cry alone in the shower.
