Irony Meter Breaks: Eric Boehlert Whine About Incivility to Office of President Cross-Posted on a Site Devoted to Incivility to President Bush
That’s right. Boehlert whines and moans about Andrew Malcolm calling President Obama mean names, like “Smoker-in-Chief.” Then he cross-publishes his post at a site called “The Smirking Chimp.” On the masthead is a picture of former President George W. Bush, with a “return to sender” stamp across his face.
It’s irony so rich, you won’t have room for seconds!
Thanks to Dodd.
UPDATE: Boehlert has taken to Twitter to deny the charge that he cross-posted his whine about civility:
If @patterico were any dumber, it would hurt. I didn’t “cross publish” my column at Smirking Chimp, idiot.
Boehlert’s post — which is posted at “Eric Boehlert’s blog” at The Smirking Chimp — decries Andrew Malcolm’s failure to maintain a “clean, dignified and civil tone.”
Is he doing some kind of subtle parody of himself? Help me out here.
