Big Derbyshire Boob-haha On NRO

Derbyshire has always walked that fine line between "a guy just willing to say what we're all thinking" and "homophobic, racist asshole."

Sorry, it's true. And he often leans more to the latter side than the former.

He attracted some criticism for this Chris Klein-worthy riff:

Jennifer's bristols. Did I buy, or browse, a copy of the November 17 GQ, in order to get a look at Jennifer Aniston's bristols?** No, I didn't. While I have no doubt that Ms. Aniston is a paragon of charm, wit, and intelligence, she is also 36 years old. Even with the strenuous body-hardening exercise routines now compulsory for movie stars, at age 36 the forces of nature have won out over the view-worthiness of the unsupported female bust.

It is, in fact, a sad truth about human life that beyond our salad days, very few of us are interesting to look at in the buff. Added to that sadness is the very unfair truth that a woman's salad days are shorter than a man's — really, in this precise context, only from about 15 to 20. The Nautilus and the treadmill can add a half decade or so, but by 36 the bloom is definitely off the rose. Very few of us, however, can face up to this fact honestly, and I am sure this diary item will generate more angry e-mails of protest than everything else I have written this month.

Gee, Derb, ya think? You've just expressed a preference for 15 year olds and have written off every woman older than 20 as sexually undesirable.

He also pedantically offers:

** Bristols. Cockney rhyming slang. There is a well-known soccer team in England named Bristol City.

Dude, that's the one bit of cockney rhyming slang that even I know.

Anyway, the Corner is still dealing with the fallout. Start at the bottom and work your way up if you're interested.
