Chewbacca Bozell’s little brother, L., still hasn’t graduated from playground taunts. He demonstrated this in a letter written to CNN host Piers Morgan regarding CNN’s and the other librul media’s coverage of Rush Limbaugh’s 453rd gaffe. Basically, his letter can be boiled down to this: “Neener-neener you got no wiener”.
Most fundamentally, why the impulse to counter one outrageous stunt by rummaging through the archives in search of some supposedly offsetting outrageous stunt? Why not respond to an indecent act on its own terms, and then — if there’s another indecency later — react to that too, and on its own terms?
Instead, public life is reduced to a revenge drama. Each offense is condoned by reference to some previous offense by some undefined “them” who supposedly once did something even worse, or anyway nearly as bad, at some point in the past.
