Or, Should Columnists Condemn Puppet Porn?
Some denizens of the leftish Oz blogosphere heart conservative columnist Andrew Bolt – in a big way. He’s MsFits’ “one true love”. Darlene Taylor has a post entitled “A Quickie with Bolt”.
Jess at Ausculture addresses Andrew thusly –
You could cut the sexual tension between you and the Left with a knife, dude. Seriously.
But Jess is onto something. Bolt’s Christmas Eve column must be the silliest yet. Perhaps it’s satire. But it is of interest to note that Bolt agrees with The Devine Miss M that Lefties (or as Bolt puts it, the Groovy Left) will “cringe” at Team America: World Police. Actually, I haven’t seen it but most Groovy Lefties I’ve spoken to had a hoot.
Miranda must have forgotten her strictures about the evils of sex. She’s even prepared to condone “puppet sex” now in the interests of making Groovy Lefties cringe. Come on, Miss M. It’s puppet porn. Say it. You’re contributing to the deformation of a generation, and to the impending downfall of Western Civilisation.
ELSEWHERE: Immanuel Rant has a somewhat more serious look at the Devine Miss M’s latest gambit in the culture wars. Philip Gomes at Citystate suspects Miss M may have joined the South Park Republicans. Senator Andrew Bartlett is also sceptical about Miranda’s sudden infatuation with puppets over at AndrewBartlettOnLine.
JUST IN: Geoff suggests in comments that Miranda may have been swayed by the odd left-wing op/ed filmic puritanism of Clive Hamilton.
