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.
