Steyn on Ellis and the Polar Express

You know, Debbie Reynolds should sue this fella. Mark takes issue with left-leaning Bob Ellis, a prominent Australian blogger and Obamawannabe. In his article for the ABC (the Australian public broadcast channel) he lambasts Hillary, saying her “frigidity” is the root cause of everything since Bill’s first inauguration. Stunning. Read the whole thing. That’s ok, ‘ll wait.

Ok, now you can pick your teeth up off the floor. Frequent readers here know I try to keep this little blog as PG as possible for a number of reasons. Thanks to media and entertainment mores, MTV and toy manufacturers and the “new” modern society of the world, at times it is a herculean task.

I agree with Mark when he says

Being a supporter of neither Senator Clinton nor Senator Obama, I couldn’t care less about accusations of “unfairness” and “negative campaigning”. But in the matter of whether criticism of Obama is racist and criticism of Hillary is sexist, I think there’s certainly more to the latter charge.

Sure, let’s pick on the female. It will get a few laughs, knowing snickers and wink-wink-nod-nods from the boys and nobody will label you a racist (this century’s most abused and over-used word) and make you quit whatever cush job you currently occupy. Mark continues

As conservative female bloggers know, it’s amazing how quickly “progressive” men reach for the your-problem-is-you-don’t-get-enough stuff. But, even so, it’s remarkable how comfortable leftie guys are deploying the frigid-and-won’t-put-out line against their own.

Bad Form! Bad Form! When a commenter came to her defense, calling Ellis the “Sexist Scum” name he deserved, this was Ellis’ “elevated” response:

I wouldn’t normally have raised this aspect of her private life but Hillary’s failure to ‘keep the dog on the porch’, as the famous Arkansas phrase puts it, had this not then caused, or partly caused Monica, the impeachment, Karl Rove’s ‘morality politics’, Gore’s loss, Bush’s win and, by global warming, the end of the world; like the length of Cleopatra’s nose it’s been, as it turns out, a big factor in everything that followed including a million deaths in Iraq and therefore probably worth noting by historians like me.

Oh PUHHHHLLLLEEEEEZZZZZ. It’s pretty obvious in which camp this bozo belongs. Such an adolescent fascination with the magazine trove under his bed is unhealthy.

Amazing. The mouth that launched a million deaths. Bill was denied, people died.

That Steyn. He has the gift. (You can buy his book at SteynOnline. America Alone will change the way you look at the world forever.)

But that Ellis? He should get his head out of high school and try to FOCUS on the task at hand. Which is NOT the object IN his hand. Sheesh.
