Ooo, Frank, What’s She Going to Do? “Nibble your bum?”

This morning, Frank Rich relates the Tale of the Vorpal Hillary. She’s vicious and evil, I tells ya’! She was mean and nasty enough to rent the Hallmark Channel for an hour. The HALLMARK CHANNEL!

As Frank richly spins this yarn, not only was the dangerous creature in question a “racist”, “boring” spendthrift, she was also the pretender to Johnny Carson’s throne with Carole Simpson playing the roll of Ed McMahon (Yess!), carrying her microphone like a lantern.

Rich is only the latest pundit this week who is “soiling his armor” as he goes up against this most lethal of foes. But because they foolishly lobbed their Holy Hand Grenades back in the 90’s, this is what they are reduced to:

“Let us taunt it. It may become so cross it will make a mistake.”

May the lord smite them to tiny bits.

  1. Oh god I enjoyed that.

  2. Isn’t snark fun?!

  3. Frank Rich, silly sot!!!


  4. ah, reminds me of the old days. you’ve still got the moves, kid.

  5. campskunk: The good news is that there is so much material to work with. The bad news is that there is so much material to work with I never get anything else done.
    Taking a break at three to clean the fricking bathrooms and kitchen.

  6. good one riverdaughter-LOL

  7. thanks for a good laugh. i enjoyed it.

  8. LOL! Thanks for the comic relief.

  9. The best part of the Frank Rich column are the comments. He is getting hammered, even by some Obama supporters. It’s hilarious.

  10. BerneO: I keep waiting for Peggy and Frank and Maureen to come to the point and tell us exactly WHAT makes Hillary so loathesome. They got nuthin’.
    They just don’t like her and they don’t like her because all of their friends don’t like her and they started the “I Hate Hillary Club” back in 1992 and damn it, they will not be ignored. Actually, it makes Peggy Noonan’s column even more hillarious. It is she and her buddies who are like Glenn Close in the bathtub. We can’t seem to drown the irrational rage out of them. What exactly did Hillary do to them except make their future employment doubtful?
    I’m glad he’s getting hammered although I noticed that the editor’s choices were favorable to Rich.

  11. The cool thing about Rich (from a self-discrediting perspective) is that he’s such a coward. I didn’t see him going after Clinton when she was up, and especially before the NY primary when Rich would have to deal with actual voters around him. Now it’s a full-fledged Obamagasm and Rich just found his inner schmuck, just in time (so he thinks).

  12. I think it’s frustration. His friends threw everything they had at her before Super Tuesday and all they got was a tie.

  13. Apparently Frank has a touch of the sniggering fratboy tarbrush?
