Daniel Schorr: wanker.
Jane, great HuffPo piece. It resonated. Proof? You got flamed by folks who would flame anyone who was not slavish enough to be in line to be Karl Rove’s next Leather Slave.
Keep up the Great Work! When’s the next post over there?
When the indictments come down I wantta be on Judy Duty! M
Yeah. Judy, principles. Just don’t go together, do they?
Great post JaneI was going to say something more but I get so angry thinking about the neocon propaganda queen it’s better if I don’t.
I’ve had nothing but the highest regard for Mr. Schoor’s work over the decades (after all, he made it onto Nixon’s enemies list– no higher honor in those days!) so I am truly saddened by his current stance.
Great first salvo, Jane. (Although I must say, I do enjoy some of Daniel Schorr’s commentaries — maybe I just like old curmugeons. lol) Can’t wait to read the next installment. If Judy actually had internet access, she’d be seriously pissed. Good on ya!
Great post Jane. You can tell from the comments to the article on HuffPo that you are hitting close to home.
What if Rove is innocent? Isn’t this about how we were led into a war of aggression based upon carefully orchestrated media propaganda? Might the source of the leak have been Bolton?
Agh, more movies. I’m going away to the good politics places.
If Rove goes to prison, the GOP is essentially politically rudderless — which means that their very delicate game of balancing constituencies might lead to some interesting ‘Bush wars.’
Something about even Rove going to prison would remind me of the scene where Paul Sorvino and Ray Liotta are living like kings inside of that correctional institute (thanks to the razor blade/garlic trick… and the drugs).
JPH – The sonofabitch’ll be in prison where he belongs, that’s what.
You’re putting an awful lot of energy (and your considerable talent) into hyping the Plame affair, but I’m afraid that I just can’t muster much excitement over the whole thing.
Ultimately, even if Rove goes to prison… so what?
Wes Anderson, Owen Wilson… See, this floodgate opens, and the next thing, it’ll be who did the makeup on whatsis with the frickin’-whatsis-thing.
I’ve written for the Times Book Review, btw, and will never admit it because…
Great column on Schorr. Apparently he suffers from the delusion that she is a reporter rather than a political operative.
Full disclosure: I actually kind of enjoyed Zoolander. The shame, the shame…
Sorry, Gavin, I saw it in the bio pop-up from the Huffington Post link (I didn’t independently research it). Although the exclusion of Double Dragon is bewildering and infuriating.
As for the underlying post, it is very good, but I understand where Mr. Schorr (who first started off as a cub reporter during the Crimean War) is coming from: professional ass-covering. That’s why my nascent pride as a pseudo-attorney kicks in whenever I hear a lawyer joke, or when Lynne Stewart was imprisoned.
SING OUT LOUISE!!!You’re off to a roaring good start, Jane.
Gavin — thanks for the cover.
N – Your check is in the mail.
Dan — We still have hope for Owen.
Hey– Jane produced a GOOD Ben Stiller movie. What are the odds of that? If you want to nitpick and blame her for advancing BS’s career, that’s your deal, but for god’s sake, THE WOMAN IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR OWEN WILSON.
Leave your bags of burning dogshit on Wes Anderson’s doorstep, not hers.
Great stuff; I agree entirely.
You’re not supposed to mention that she does movies, Norb. We’ve all been really good at covering for that.
You produced “Permanent Midnight”? I liked the movie a lot, but don’t you feel that a 2,000 word apology concerning the number of excremental Ben Stiller/Owen Wilson grade-Q comedies since then is warranted? In the alternative, send me $3.50.
See, that’s what I’m talking ’bout. Get some high-quality blogging going over at the H.P.
