Right Thinking From The Left Coast
The Government is merely a servant -- merely a temporary servant; it cannot be its prerogative to determine what is right and what is wrong, and decide who is a patriot and who isn't. Its function is to obey orders, not originate them. - Mark Twain

Two Newspapers

Check out the political hagiography of George Clooney in today’s LA Times.

He subscribes to two newspapers and can quote the top political columnists.

Wow, two whole newspapers!  And he reads columnists!  My God, this should qualify George Clooney as Emperor of the Universe!  I mean, anyone who actually reads two newspapers has to be some kind of fucking ├╝bergenius.

Here’s a little reality check for George Clooney.  I read about 6 newspapers a day, I subscribe to 5 different political magazines from all parts of the political spectrum, I read maybe 30 or 40 blogs regularly, I’ve written a blog continually for five years while simultaneously working 70 hours a week, and I still don’t hold myself in a fraction of the smug “My shit doesn’t stink” self-esteem that you do.

Update: This was, of course, parodied beautifully in Team America, when that intellectual midget Janeane Garofalo says:

As actors, it is our responsibility to read the newspapers, and then say what we read on television like it’s our own opinion.

Much like Janeane, George Clooney also subscribes to two newspapers and can quote top political columnists.
