On the Opinion Page: May 8, 2008


In which The Gay Recluse scores selected opinions in The Times.

Gail Collins/The Torch en Route

The Short Version: Hillary wants to run. So what?  

In his words: “South Dakota wants its turn. It wants to have Chelsea visit its community colleges and refuse to answer questions about Monica Lewinsky. ”

Score: A- (Amusing)
Collins continues to strike the perfect balance between cynicism and admiration for all involved in the Democratic primary.    

Nicholas Kristof/The Too-Long Goodbye

The Short Version: Why won’t that bitch shut up and go away?

In his words: “The upshot is that Mr. Obama’s election prospects in November may depend on Mrs. Clinton.”

The Score: D (Defeatist)
Kristof needs to read Collins’ piece, which is 1000000000000 (one trillion) times funnier and more reasonable than his short-sighted and pedantic diatribe.
