We are fortunate to live in an era in which the pompous so readily identify themselves for mockery by the rest of us. The single most common form of such self-revelation is an attack on Sarah Palin's alleged stupidity. The latest blowhard to reveal his shallowness is Bill Keller, still holding onto a job as columnist at the New York Times after leading the paper into serious decline as editor for the past 8 years and being replaced last month. The son of privilege (his father was CEO of oil giant Chevron), Keller looks down his nose at Sarah in a Sunday New York Times column delightfully debunked by my friend Rick Richman, who points out that the supposedly erudite Keller entirely missed a literary allusion of Sarah's.
Our friends at iOwnTheWorld.com have put together a compilation of leftists in media and politics making idiots of themselves. It makes for amusing viewing, but be cautioned that foul-mouthed Bill Maher is shown at his most vulgar, using a sexual slur against Sarah.
