One of the finer things in life, besides football, a hot grill, and ice cold brew, is listening to liberals feud with each other.
A couple of days ago, The Huffington Post, a large blog hosted by Arianna Huffington, former conservative who has somehow turned into aÃ‚Â left-wing Gabor sister from hell, posted a blog supposedly written by actor/liberal activist (pardon the redundancy) George Clooney.
George has since said he neither wrote the posting nor gave permission for Huffington to use it. A big row has sinceÃ‚Â developed.
Here, in a nut’s shell, isÃ‚Â Ariana’s explanation: “Eet vasn’t our fault, dahlink Cheorgie”.
Also writing on the Post, Jane Hamsher defends Arianna, saying she was there when she spoke with Clooney about the possibility of him blogging (this was after they managed to convince George that “blogging” has nothing to do with deforestation).
I’m sureÃ‚Â Huffington would have gone more in-depth withÃ‚Â her explanation, but she’s busy firing up the private jet so she can burn 50,000 gallons of fuel to fly to an emergency conference on ozone depletion.
Really though, if these women were speaking to George Clooney, what are the odds that they were actually listening to anything he was saying? The same that the odds are of us listening to anything he’s saying, but for different reasons.
This whole thing is a microcosym of Democrat failings politically. The people at The Huffington Post are, with some exceptions, liberals. So is Clooney. As Hamsher wrote, they should “have each others back”, but instead end up firing verbal barbs at each other. Republicans usually don’t need to “divide and conquer” when the other side is already doing the dividing.
Sit back and enjoy the fun. Geez, with all the trouble in mainstream media, from the New York Times Jayson Blair messÃ‚Â to Dan Rather’s fake document fiasco, the blogosphere was the last bastion of real news integrity, and even helped expose these frauds.
Now that has vanished, thanks, of course, to a couple of liberals.
