What the Hell Is Michael Kinsley Talking About Watch: Day 2
wonkette: i'm sorry, but indulge me.
operative: i think you need some wacky theme music to kick in when you ask that
operative: benny hill, or something
wonkette: HE FORGOT TO GET TO THE OPINION PART OF THE OPINION PAGE
wonkette: it's like you keep reading it, figuring he'll get to some sort of point, and then...
operative: is he hopping mad? or he's the happy one?
operative: perhaps some editor cut out the graf before the last line that explained everything
operative: because if it made sense, then it wouldn't be a Kinsley column, would it?
wonkette: next week he will write an op-ed on Kim Jong-il that sums up the history of the Korean war, and then says "shit, figurin' out stuff is hard!"
operative: if only he had been alive 220 years ago, the Federalist papers would have kicked ass!
wonkette: if he'd been alive 220 years ago, the federalist papers would've been a sarcastic summary of the magna carta
operative: I think that was Tom Paine's bit at the Continental Congress Talent Show
wonkette: all i know is "speaking of crazy talk" is just about the most appropriate way possible for kinsley to start a paragraph
