Future Welfare Queen

Cole Slaw Blog takes for a given that the way much of this country's right-wing commentariat demonizes anyone who doesn't hew to its worldview.

But the stunning venom in this recent piece on Marla Ruzicka is still surprising. To the point where I really don't know what else to say.

One can only assume that the author (I forget her name and am not about to go look it up) has tired of her role in the right-wing commentariat equivalent of the Gulf Coast League and has decided to make a splash by pissing on the grave of someone more thoughtful and courageous than she.

If true, this is someone without respect for the power of the printed word or the value of public discourse. Which would make her pretty much indistinguishable from most other right-wing pundits. Nice try, then.

I suppose she could get on the government's pundit dole. But then again, would that be taking personal responsibility?

I'm so torn! I don't want to bust on the post (excellent bile), but I do want to point out that FrontPageMag columnist Debbie Schlussel went to the same college as Madonna, Ann B. Davis, and dreamy Tom Brady...

Well, it would have been better if she'd attended Ohio State, as she'd be functionally illiterate and thus unable to spew her batshit-craziness all o'er the land. Or in this case, to a dedicated readership of dozens.

Well, if we're going to wish functional illiteracy on any UofM grads, we're not going to waste it on her. That one's reserved for Ann Coulter.
