Great Moments In Conservative Punditry Part 2
National Review columnist Mark Steyn can't resist making fun of people who voice concerns about the United States torture policies.
I have had a distressingly large number of reader e-mails on the lines of the following:
So they're against "the Use of Music as Torture?" Really? You mean they've decided to oppose "American Idol?"
Look, that’s not funny!
Okay, if you replace “American Idol” with “The Celine Dion Christmas Album”…
Steyn didn't feel that was insensitive enough. He took a shot at Andrew Sullivan's homosexuality.
Anyway, Andrew Sullivan walks up to this ethnomusicologist and says, “Do you know Bush is using sleep deprivation at Gitmo?” And the ethnomusicologist says, “No, but if you hum a few bars I’ll play it on my bone flute.”
This is what passing for punditry daily at The Corner.
Update: Read this post on why I stand by my assessment of Steyn's post.
