in the course of mounting a defense of a gay foreign policy aide to mitt romney, mr wmson goes through the motions of some truly arch arch archreacitonary shit about sex, marriage, culture etc.

we need a term for that kind of mode of writing, not exactly throat-clearing, but "i am in a dispute with another conservative, and i'm taking was looks like the not-most-right-wing line, so i have to sound like a really angry asshole about something kind of related to what i'm talking about"

I'm sure there's a term for that type of rhetoric. It's p common.

Our paper describes six studies conducted in the United States and Germany involving 784 university students. Participants rated their sexual orientation on a 10-point scale, ranging from gay to straight. Then they took a computer-administered test designed to measure their implicit sexual orientation. In the test, the participants were shown images and words indicative of hetero- and homosexuality (pictures of same-sex and straight couples, words like “homosexual” and “gay”) and were asked to sort them into the appropriate category, gay or straight, as quickly as possible. The computer measured their reaction times.

What is he on? Is it a combination of 5 hour energy and beef jerky?

Probably how he wrote his books.

So, I was on Piers Morgan’s show on CNN tonight. It was a shameful spectacle. He pretended to be a serious interviewer and I spent far too long pretending he was one too. My apologies to everyone who tuned in. I will have a more comprehensive response tomorrow on the Tyranny of Cliches blog.

Hahah I wonder if he went in thinking "Well he can't be as mean as Jon Stewart..."

I like the .gifs but I'm not actually going to, you know, watch any of this.

Agreed, I can't even bring myself to watch this because I hate Morgan as least as much as I do Goldberg.

Respectfully, Tyrese Gibson (Nicole), Tuesday, 1 May 2012 17:33 (1 year ago) Permalink

Mr. Goldberg's thoughts are now up.

Ned Raggett, Tuesday, 1 May 2012 17:36 (1 year ago) Permalink

apparently he fawned and gushed over his next guest, some liberal actress. So much for going after both “sides” equally

(This was Rosario Dawson, BTW.)

Ned Raggett, Tuesday, 1 May 2012 17:37 (1 year ago) Permalink

I really don't like talking about gushing in such proximity to Morgan or Goldberg but I'm sure Morgan fawned over Rosario Dawson because she's hot -- I doubt he even knows about her political affiliation.

Conservative analysts and commentators admit their biases up front, and so journalists dismiss them as biased. “Objective” analysts and commentators lie about not having biases and their statements are taken at face value. I remember when I used to be on CNN how frustrating it was to have liberal contributors be asked “What did you think of the speech?” But when it came time to ask me or another conservative it was “So, Jonah, what’s the conservative take on this?

I hate to write it but this is true btw

All of which would be much better expressed by someone other than the goateed marshmellow.
