To Collins, those people are funny: We have never been able to understand the horrible Lady Collins.
We think we pretty much get Maureen Dowd. It’s fairly clear that Chris Matthews sold his soul at one point to Jack Welch.
(Watching Chris now that he’s been repurposed, we would guess that his current pose, which he still advances dishonestly, is more in line with his actual views. Although that's of course just a guess.)
Collins though we just don’t get. We've never really had a feel for her weird, uncaring detatchment. That said, her column today is just awful. It has been alleged that Bain Capital looted the lives of some very average people.
To Collins, this remains a highly amusing matter. This is the end of a truly disgusting column. It was written in Q-and-A style:
COLLINS (1/12/12): Why is Newt Gingrich still running for president? Aren’t voters fleeing from him as if he were a rabid palmetto bug?Those average people who got their lives looted are just an amusement to Collins. Darlings! You should watch the video! “It’s full of heart-tugging former factory workers who used to have happy homes and wonderful Christmases!”
To understand Newt Gingrich, you have to envision a mixture of “Kill Bill” and “Carrie,” after Sissy Spacek gets hit with the bucket of blood. His only mission in life is getting even with Mitt Romney and the rich minions who paid for all those anti-Newt ads in Iowa. He is exactly like Sweeney Todd mixed with Charles Bronson in “Death Wish.” And maybe a smidge of “Shogun Assassin.”
Now Gingrich has roped in a few rich minions of his own, and you should watch the video they’ve just put out. Romney looks worse than the evil banker in “It’s a Wonderful Life.” It’s full of heart-tugging former factory workers who used to have happy homes and wonderful Christmases until ... Mitt Romney Came to Town. By the time it’s over, you will want to gather up the peasants and march on one of Romney’s mansions with flaming torches.
There is nothing Gingrich won’t do to get Mitt. At the end of the video, there’s a clip of Romney speaking French! And now Newt’s Web site has a video that basically asks whether America will elect a president who once drove to Canada with the family dog strapped to the roof of the car. Which is, of course, an excellent question.
We have never been able to get a read on this very puzzling person. But she makes it rather plain today:
To Collins, this election is all about the (imagined) mistreatment of Mitt Romney’s poor abused dog. Those average people who got their lives looted?
Darlings! They offer delicious amusement! Just watch as they tug at your hearts!
An early assessment: A very important debate has broken out—a debate which goes right to the heart of this decades-long plutocrat era.
What does Collins say as she starts? Of course:
COLLINS: What will the big issues be in the South Carolina primary?This person is simply amazing.
When five of your six candidates could not be elected president if they were running against Millard Fillmore, I think you can presume there will not be much serious issue discussion.
As we speak, Gingrich and Perry are hammering away at Romney, going right to the soul of this terrible plutocrat era. But to Collins, there’s nothing to look at! There won’t be any issue discussion here! Darlings! Move right along!
Collins has long been a weirdly horrible person. How long does our pseudo-progressive world plan to tolerate this?
