07/24/2005: A Well Aimed and Deserved Kick...
From the acid-pen of James Wolcott: a Bernard Goldberg kick in the pants:
“….As many of you are no doubt aware, Al outranks me. He's #37 on Bernard Goldberg's list of the 100 people screwing up America--a book that should be more properly titled, Hey, You Liberals, Get Off My Lawn!--while I place at #64. Yet I'm not envious. If anything, I'm embarrassed that my ranking is as high as it is. I've only been screwing up America for a few paltry years while Oliver Stone and others who placed below me in this feebleminded gimmick of a fake book have spent decades of blood, sweat, and tears trying to undermine everything Goldberg holds dear in the studios of Fox News, where he seems to have set up a cot in the green room so that he can be always on call.
And if I may venture a modest editorial opinion of Goldberg and his pseudo-book, his inclusion of former CBS colleague Dan Rather on the list--at #12, no less--shows what a backstabbing little careerist fuckrat he is.
But fear not, I shall not use such language on Air America. I shall speak with the dulcet tones of Sir John Gielgud reading a selection from Gerard Manley Hopkins…”
