The Times, They Are A Sucking

From the Bankrupt Times' Top of the Ticket web log, which is run by Laura Bush's former press secretary, Andrew Malcolm:
Although many have dismissed Palin for not being smart or sharp, watch how she smoothly echoes the never-ending right-wing theme that the president is a stranger in a strange land, alien to the principles that this nation was built on.

“A lot of this has to do with his background, him having not been a part of the private sector and running a business or having to rely on making profit. That seems to be foreign to our President. His background and those he’s appointing don’t understand what America was built upon. His ideas are the antithesis of those things that created the prosperity in America,” Palin said.
Note that this was typed by one Tony Pierce, not Malcolm. Nonetheless, how "smoothly echoes the never-ending right-wing theme" translates into proof of smartness or sharpness is beyond us. Unless you think mynah birds & parrots are the ultimate in evolutionintelligent design.

To continue the bird (brain) metaphor, the Times is molting as quickly as it can. Layoffs announced today: (Well-respected) NBA beat writer Mark Heisler is gone, as is columnist Tim Rutten.

Hither & yon.

Extra fucking added laughs (2110): Clown Tony Pierce, who thinks Palin is so damn smart & sharp got his ass laid off today too.

What "private sector job" has Palin ever held?
