Milo Goes Down
It’s truly heart-warming – and surely entirely coincidental – that “dangerous faggot” Milo Y. decided to open up about the abuse he suffered in his youth, only a day after derailing his gravy train by running over his own dick.
One confusing aspect of the whole debacle, however, is why the right is angry at the left over this thing. The left, after all, made Milo the star he is. (Or was?) Milo’s raison d’etre was pissing off liberals so the right could pay lip service to free speech principles.
Without the left, Milo would never have been invited to give the opening speech at CPAC. Without the left, Simon & Schuster would never have smelled money in the water and greenlit publishing Mr Peroxide’s musings on why women shouldn’t be allowed to study science and how to best misappropriate funds.
Concurrently, it wasn’t the left that told Milo to step down from CPAC. Likewise, Simon & Schuster’s decision to drop his book like a festering turd (but I repeat myself) was as cynical as deciding to publish in the first place, and based purely on the principles of free marketeering and profits.
The simple truth is that the left never had a chance of shutting Milo up. Honestly, he should be thanking the left on a daily basis – as I’m sure he will once the poor snowflake starts playing the repentant sinner in order to flog some new book.
So Michael Flynn is out. Trump hasn’t been president for even a month, his numbers are already in the toilet and now he’s had to fire his national security advisor for being in the bag for a foreign state. (Well, technically he “resigned” to spend more time with his family. In Russia.)
The reliantly repulsive Newt Gingrich just wrote an article espousing The Don as “very, very smart,” but surrounded by morons, but as The Don and his “brilliant, the very best” advisors responded to a North Korean missile launch by illuminating the classified document using their cell phone lights as the other diners watched (and took photos), I was struck by a thought: What if they’re actually a bit thick?
I never thought we’d miss the statesmanship of Sarah Palin, nor was I ever interested in watching The Apprentice, but I guess I have to pay attention to it now, since whoever wins this season will affect us all.
