Last night, I took Matt Taibbi of Rolling Stone to task for delighting in the death of Andrew Breitbart.
Well, this morning Clark Stooksbury of The American Conservative (which these days is neither particularly American nor conservative in its outlook) rushed to the defense of Taibbi. Stooksbury complains, “He quotes the nasty part of Taibbi’s obit but leaves out all of the nice parts and whines about how mean liberals are to conservatives.”
Let me remind you how Taibbi paid “tribute” to Breitbart:
Good! F#*k him. I couldn’t be happier that he’s dead.
Once Taibbi unleashed that out of the bag what the hell else was there for him to say? What “nice parts” could he have possibly added?
Imagine if someone delivering a eulogy said, “This rotten bastard deserved to die. The only reason I am here to see that his coffin is lowered.” Unless that person was John Cleese paying homage to Graham Chapman, the eulogizer couldn’t very well go on to say the dearly departed was kind to children and small furry animals, now could he? Needless to say, Taibbi is no John Cleese.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
