Treacher: Obama's Critics May Be Dumb But At Least They Know How Babies Are Made

Andrew Sullivan asked why Obama's critics are so dumb on a Newsweek headline.

I skipped this, because he's irrelevant, but I need something to post.

From a live-tweet Sullivan did:

Comment From Mike D: Palin called you a “conspiracy kook” and blasted Newsweek for allowing you a cover. Do you ever worry that your more controversial views will overshadow your other writing?

Andrew: No. Palin’s tweet made me come in my pants.

...

[Some other question]

I write what I think is true. I don’t give a damn about “reputation.” If I’m wrong I correct or re-think. Once a writer worries about these things, he’s like an actor watching the audience. In my opinion, far too many journalists worry about their reputation.

Treacher has his own joke on that. I like his joke and would just add a small variation on it.

"I gotta be me" has become the mantra for any asshole on reality tv acting like an asshole. The moment someone says "I gotta be me" you know you're listening to an asshole.

It's just egotism given the veneer of a justification: Honesty demands I be an asshole.

One last great thing about Treacher's post is that he reminded me of Sullivan's sexually-bent dream about Palin. Do you remember this? This is real. Treacher isn't making this up. Sullivan really dreamed this, and then posted it, without apparently worrying one bit about how it might look:

“I had a dream last night that I was lost in Sarah Palin’s garden. It was springtime, and there were bluebells everywhere. I suddenly realized where I was and tried to get out to the street. But there was just more garden …”

Some kind of oddball reverse sexual panic where a gay guy has a sudden weird feeling he might be straight. Ah, well.

I gotta be me, yo.

And what's up with the dude's Helter Skelter beard? "Bluebells" Sullivan needs to trim his mouth-bush.

Incidentally, Sullivan heartily endorsed Ron Paul for the Republican nomination, but of course he's in love with Obama.
