A Smack Here, a Slap There, and Pretty Soon
We’re Talking About Real Snark

In case you haven’t been paying close attention, I just wanted to mention that Roger Ailes, the blogger not the slobber, has been smacking all the right people upside the head but good. It’s been fun to watch, and yes, informative, too.

Among Ailes’s latest and very worthy targets:

National Review’s Kathryn Jean Lopez Lopez, a/k/a “K Lo,” which I was recently reminded is the purportedly fun and clever nickname of a right-wing doodler and not a personal lubricant available at drugstores everywhere;

George F. Will, the adulterous and divorced moral arbiter of a culture gone mad;

Robert Novak, he of the ongoing Robert Novak-White House Security Leak scandal (Why do people insist on using the far less accurate term “Valerie Plame Affair”? Let’s place the blame and notoriety where the blame and notoriety belong.);

Tim Russert, the Bush administration’s favorite and disturbingly excitable big-media slattern; and

Neil Bush, whose fetish seems to have been financially underwritten by just about everybody except Richard Mellon Scaife, though I’ll have to get back to you on that.

Nice work, Roger.
