The mean old blogosphere normally mocks political pundits for acting as if they were the eye-rolling, back-stabbing, empty-headed, spoiled little shits from the classic teen film Heathers. Well, thanks to Kevin Drum, I'm proud to report that Newsweek's Howard Fineman has apparently decided to take this wonderful trend of political-journalism-as-high-school-gossip to new and exciting depths.
I'd have to say that Fineman's latest column is the single shallowest bit of political commentary I've ever read. I wouldn't be surprised if he had text messaged the column from a matinee showing of Code Name: The Cleaner and had his editors remove all the "sux" and "pwned!" comments before putting it to print.
Nice work, Howie! But I think yer mom is here to pick you up, dood.
