takes on, and takes out, CNN's Piers Morgan. Wolcott, one of the wittiest and most incisive writers around--and no conservative--begins by asking:
Many questions torment America in its dark night of the soul, questions more urgently pressing, and yet it must be asked: How did we get stuck with Piers Morgan? Who is he, why is he here, is he returnable?
Tee hee. Wolcott goes on to label Morgan as "canned ham," an obsequious "knob polisher" for his "get" guests. All the while, Morgan smiles and cheerleads his guests. As if we don't see enough of that already.
Yet lest anyone think that Morgan is actually a nice guy or anything, or not deserving of this level of vitriol from Wolcott, consider this Tweet, noted by the Vanity Fair-man, that Morgan sent out about Madonna:
“Lady Gaga is half her age, twice as good-looking, twice as talented, and twice as hot.”
Now what kind of thing is that to say--about anyone? Morgan's constant smile, we can now see, is more of an arrogant and self-satisfied smirk. The casual cruelty of an arrogant jerk.
