Sing out, sister.

My my, but when that Katha Pollitt gets wound up, she is a treasure, isn’t she?

What’s the matter with conservatives? Why can’t they relax and be happy? They have the White House, both houses of Congress, the majority of governorships and more money than God. They rule talk-radio and the TV political chat shows, and they get plenty of space in the papers; for all the talk about the liberal media, nine out of the fourteen most widely syndicated columnists are conservatives. Even the National Endowment for the Arts, that direct-mail bonanza of yore, is headed by a Republican now. Never mind whether conservatives deserve to run the country and dominate the discourse; the fact is, for the moment, they do.

It gets better from there. Enjoy every word.

    The perfect followup to Cringeworthy. Clearly, Miss Shinola is using the Gingrich playbook. (But then Fort Wayne’s ten years behind the times on everything else, so it follows.)

    Wonder if the J-G’s gonna have any more shit from Shinola today?

    Respect for “the other side” is becoming far too rare.

    Well, anon, I’m sure glad the Dems have been taking the high road all these years.

    Sorry Alex. I’m sick and damn tired of the Dems taking the high road.
