So this guy I’ve never heard of wrote something for the SF paper about how he’s leaving the left to be a better liberal, or something. I had a bit of trouble figuring out what he meant, but I think he meant he wanted to have a headline about a headline about a guy who’s a writer who’s not with the left any more. He’s not Christopher Hitchens so I don’t think it’ll get him a lot of money. But anyway, here’s the “money quote” from his interview at http://www.thompsonatlarge.com/
Likewise, I’ll be glad to cheer when the Children’s Defense Fun gets around to advocating dedicated parenting as kids’ first and foremost need. Until then, I’ll keep saying to Dr. Laura: You go, girlfriend.
Leaving aside for a moment the question of why paying for kids’ vaccinations is forgetting about dedicated parenting, I have a tip for Mr. Thompson. You are an aging white man in a suit. You do not get to say “You go, girlfriend” to anyone at all, ever, much less to a freaked-out nonpsychologist religious fanatic entertainer who makes a living humiliating the suffering of others.
So I’m not going to try to figure out the convoluted reasoning of why you made your big life decision; I’m just going to write you off. You might be better off just getting a red sports car, a weave toupée, and a few blowjobs from your secretary if you want to feel a bit more free.
