Rich Lowry buffs his banana for Sarah Palin – and shares
As Kos said, there’s something wrong with these people; he’s referring to emotionally and sexually stunted conservatives like The National Review’s Rich Lowry. Rich basically described for America how he spanked the monkey while watching Sarah Palin wink at him through the TV set during the debate last night.
A very wise TV executive once told me that the key to TV is projecting through the screen. It’s one of the keys to the success of, say, a Bill O’Reilly, who comes through the screen and grabs you by the throat. Palin too projects through the screen like crazy. I’m sure I’m not the only male in America who, when Palin dropped her first wink, sat up a little straighter on the couch and said, “Hey, I think she just winked at me.” And her smile. By the end, when she clearly knew she was doing well, it was so sparkling it was almost mesmerizing. It sent little starbursts through the screen and ricocheting around the living rooms of America
Nasty, particularly since we’re talking about Bible Spice, the heroine of social conservatives. Those impure thoughts, Rich. Really, we’re down to sex appeal as a sole qualification to be a heartbeat away from the presidency for these folks? Gov. Palin hasn’t uttered a coherent policy statement that wasn’t written for her on an index card, and hasn’t demonstrated any competence that would inspire confidence to date – the polls bear that out. To think back to the days when conservatives obsessed endlessly over the Clenis. Methinks there’s a lot of projection and envy going on.
Someone please send Lowry a case of hand sanitizer.
That little Penthouse Letter has earned Lowry Keith Olbermann’s Worst Person in the World tonight.
