Mark Steyn is more than just a really bad writer. He’s the Pied Piper of the partially-educated conservative set, leading gullible wingnuts off a cliff and laughing all the way to an Australian bank. His main shtick these days is churning out hysterical columns branding the United States as “the brokest nation in history.” (The bond market might beg to differ.)
Steyn is a “cultural conservative” who hates Muslims (and wants the American government to kill lots of them), but at his core, he’s simply a professional jerk. Here, acting out his role as president of the He-Man Woman-Haters Club (International Media Division), Steyn weighs in on Sandra Fluke:
Oh, and the “young coed” turns out to be 30, which is what less evolved cultures refer to as early middle age. She’s a couple of years younger than Mozart was at the time he croaked, but, if the Dems are to be believed, the plucky little Grade 24 schoolgirl has already made an even greater contribution to humanity. She’s had the courage to stand up in public and demand that someone else (and this is where one is obliged to tiptoe cautiously, lest offense is given to gallant defenders of the good name of American maidenhood such as the many prestigious soon-to-be-former sponsors of this column who’ve booked Bill Maher for their corporate retreat with his amusing “Sarah Palin is a c***” routine . . . )
Where was I? Oh, yes. The brave middle-aged schoolgirl had the courage to stand up in public and demand that someone else pay for her sex life.
Mark Steyn: Channeling the id of the conservative male douchebag, one insult at a time.
