Milbank Proposes a Palin Boycott

Snarky, over the top, and hip beyond belief, Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank has written a column in which he pledges not to mention Sarah Palin for a solid month, and calls upon his fellow leftist conspirators columnists to join in the boycott. 

Clearly an admission of PDS (Palin Derangement Syndrome), Milbank proposes to heal himself by going cold-turkey.  He (rightfully) believes that she has become of outsized importance on the national scene, but he completely misdiagnoses why.  It isn't because he and others write about her too much--it is because they write about her with venom and vindictiveness.  Rather than covering her in a balanced, non-judgmental way as a major political figure of the right, she is subjected to calumnies and criticisms that flow from a well-spring of elite disdain. 

Try simply covering what she says, Mr. Milbank, rather than attempting to mash what she says into a personal narrative of dysfunction.

Yeah right, and he's gonna stop hanging around the Union Station toilets as well. Believe it when I see it.

Does he have a wide stance, hammer?

Wouldn't know Fred.

Congrats on the Packers. Looked as good as a drunk Badger coed sticking her tongue down your throat and rubbing your crotch.

The Washington Post runs the significant risk of following the New York Times into the ash bin of history, with their Krugmanesque, although decidedly more effeminate, Milbank. Good riddance to both.
