Kathleen Reaches Out to The Base

Kathleen Parker, right-wing asshole and soon, in view of her Aryan appearance, to be an obersturmbannf├╝hrer at Crap Not News, unwittingly admits to something almost universally true about self-styled conservatives -- they're not fully people per se, they're contrarians, adolescent againsters. This is to say, they don't really have principles, ideas, adult character or individuality of their own, they define themselves tribally and especially as enemies of of various persons, places and things. Their highest purpose in life is to vex their enemies, real or imagined. Someone seems to have reprogrammed Parker, who once said true things about Grifter Barbie, things like, "If BS were currency, Palin could bail out Wall Street herself." In today's column she walks back from that accurate assessment faster than a Brownshirt who has crossed Limbaugh, saying, at the top of her mashnote to Sarah Palin:

For what it's worth, I get a kick out of Sarah. May I call her Sarah?

She and I apparently share a certain genetic predisposition to annoy all the right people. These would be the folks who take themselves and their ideologies a tad too seriously. Thus when I was promoting my book, "Save the Males," I wore an aggressively feminine suit -- pink with a bow in back -- just to irritate hard-line feminists, who, without bothering to read the book, would hate it on sight.

I happen to hate bows, but it was worth it.

I'm totally sure all those humorless feminazis were completely steamed about the hated bows Kathy wore just to spite them, and this more or less negated the egregious studpidity of Parker's book. But more importantly: Kathleen, like all Republicans, can't see irony and is totally selfblind, therefore she can't know that the of all people in the universe, it is her own ilk who take their ideology a highly lethal tad too seriously, that is why they have our troops engaged in folie a deux with the more ignorantly murderous Moslems.

Palin remains a grifter, liar, bigot and bully, but according to Parker, not someone to be "feared or loathed." If not for the Sarah Palins of the world, what purpose do fear and loathing serve?
