The raging, unhinged bit of me has always been a fan of Matt Taibbi, despite his tendency to come off like someone trying too hard to be a neo-Hunter S. Thompson, ever since his writings in Russia for eXile and then the New York Press.
Godwin’s Law violations aside, one must admire the rhetorical audacity/complete insanity (depending on your political point of view) it takes to describe Sarah Palin’s RNC speech as “Gidget addressing the Reichstag” in his latest Rolling Stone piece.
Methinks HST would have liked that one.
Additional note: if you have lost Campbell Brown, the wife of a big-time Republican, regarding your campaign’s handling of Palin, you’ve got issues. Free Sarah Palin!
