Quote of the Day

“There are … issues that quite simply do not have two sides.”

-Arianna Huffington on her belief that “the political world is made up of right opinions and wrong ones” in a piece by Ana Maria Cox.

This woman is the Paris Hilton of political commentary. Accidental wealth+exhibitionist [corrected from "voyeuristic"] tendencies=we have to see her more than any of us would like. Though, at least Paris isn’t giving us her opinion on global warming. Yet.

Exhibitionist tendencies rather than voyeuristic, no? It’s too bad, actually, that she’s not content to peep and observe … in silence.

I take it she supports the dems? The Reps don’t have any blowhards?

As one of the few conservatives who could not stand her when she was on our side, I honestly can’t complain. Better on the Left than on the Right. But where were all my comrades on the right when she was calling for Bill Clinton’s scalp in the 90s and cozying up to Newt to advance her then in the closet husband’s political ambitions. The right did the same thing on Arianna that they would do again and again in the W. years; fall behind the party no matter what.

Exhibitionist tendencies rather than voyeuristic, no?
Yes, corrected.
But isn’t the quote also completely descriptive of any extremist political commentary?
No. Most people recognize that there are two sides to an issue, and they may vehemently disagree with the other side, but still know it exists.

I was living in Santa Barbara when she and her gay husband tried to buy a senate seat. She’s not, and has never been, on anyone’s “side” – Arianna is on whatever side advances her quest for power.
Reminds me of Hillary with a real accent. I think it’s real, anyway.

Accidental? She earned it the old fashioned way, by playing fag hag like the two-bit whore she is. She’s moved on to Soros now.
