Thanks to James Wolcott and Vanity Fair, Gates of Vienna has enjoyed a little extra burst of traffic.
So, for our liberally inclined New York and Toronto visitors: Welcome! You have wandered into the lair of Satan Himself!
Please allow me to introduce myself; I’m a man of wealth and taste.
This is the realm of perdition, and we are all neocon tools of Bushitler, disciples of the Chimp Himself, ready to usher in the new Amerikkka and put all free-thinking souls into concentation camps!
Seriously, though, the Wolcott hotlink for our site escaped into yet another progressive blog, that of the Toronto Star and Antonia Zerbisias:
|Two of my favourite American progressive/liberal/lefty/sane writer/bloggers, The Nation‘s David Corn (scroll down) and Vanity Fair’s James Wolcott (here and here), are at war over the former’s joining the board of Pajamas Media. It’s a blogger agglomeration site that aspires to|
|coalesc(e) the internet’s brightest minds and most compelling content into a single source that will, in turn, complement and re-define journalism in the 21st century.|
|Wolcott’s problem is that Corn is the token non-fascist on this chorus line of White House talking points.|
She goes on to quote the eloquent post of Mr. Wolcott. My favorite part, though, is this:
|Bad enough those two blogs [one of these wicked sites is us: the vile Gates of Vienna] are all about fanning the flames of anti-Muslim hatred [yup]. But other participants in the PJ game include this shrew, who makes this shrew seem reasonable and intelligent.|
Since I’m not including the links, readers should note that that the first shrew is Michelle Malkin, and the second is Ann Coulter.
I’ll bet she thought that was an insult.
