P. J. O'Rourke Embarrasses Himself
P.J. O'Rourke is "back" writing things online and, well, it's not going so well.
His new column at the Daily Beast is out and what you see above is the "payoff" or bottom part of his effort to get people to read things he has written. The whole thing is straight out of something rejected by the Borowitz Report. Vladimir Putin is gay and that's why he hates gays? Hilarious shit, man. Hilarious shit. Andy Borowitz must be fuming and thinking of a zinger about Bill Clinton right now. Wait--stop me if you've heard this one before. Bill Clinton spent 2013 trying to figure out how to get himself off of RedTube, gave up, and had a three hanky meltdown. Ha! Oh, these things write themselves.
Who the hell talks about RedTube? Is that even a thing? And you gotta love a guy who goes out with a John Kerry joke. Talk about mainlining the zeitgeist through the eyeball.
Anybody can be a humorist these days. Anyone.
