And now...

A post where I agree completely with Andrew Sullivan:

A Small Note About Richard Cohen

Jul 17 2013 @ 11:01am
He first got his column in 1976. At the WaPo, lifetime tenure trumps even unvarnished racism and even less varnished mediocrity. Can you imagine him being able to make it in the blogosphere on his own merits? Me neither.

Although now that I think about it, with a few "heys" and "indeeds" Cohen would be the equal of Ernest T. Bass, Esq.

Oh, hell, Sullivan is just claiming to be higher up in the food chain than Cohen, because he thinks he's been able to "make it in the blogosphere on his own merits."

Very self-congratulatory, and very much in character for Sullivan.

Truth is, neither of them are much to write home about.
