HOW TO WRITE A SUSAN SONTAG OBITUARY
By Michelle Malkin · December 29, 2004 11:25 AM
Washington Times editor Stacy McCain sends along his newspaper's Susan Sontag obit, which begins:
Novelist, radical Susan Sontag, 71, dies in New York
Liberal bias? What liberal bias?
And Josh Trevino has an excellent, uh, tribute at Red State.
The only time the words "Includes hot babe pics!" and "Article about Susan Sontag" can go together. Unless we're talking Susan's home decorating habits.
Michelle is a cutey.
I wonder how many of Reggie White's obits mention his comments about gays. I just heard someone on the radio claim that Reggie's gay comments should be included. Since he was from the NYT, I wonder if he feels the same way about Susan.
Thanks. I listened to a piece on NPR about her and you would think that we had lost the greatest intellectual of the last 100 years.
Now I see that she was just another America-hating, racist Socialist.
Ping-a-licious Michelle alert
I have to say that I haven't paid much attention to Susan Sontag's "ideas," so I didn't know until reading this that she was a socialist dimlib. So this is enlightening; thanks for the post.
Also thanks for the pics of a lovely conservative lady. Michelle Malkin's ideas are worthy of sincere praise.
The irony is that she died of cancer. I guess the "white race" got her in the end :)
Reggie added more to my life than Sontag. And his comments were his honest beliefs. I respected Reggie for his honesty and I wish his family well in their lives and comfort in their grief.
Just what I was thinking.
No doubt that unbiased MSM will include Sontag's "white people are a cancer" quote in their obituaries...NOT!
<< Michelle is a cutey. >>
Ms Malkin is a brain.
And a Teller of The Truth.
Only the hate-America crowd feels any loss. I won't say anymore, as I'd just get into trouble with the AMs.
1) Eat a big plate of spicy beans
2) Start tape recorder.
3) Transcribe the results....
Well that too.
Obituaries usually mention who the deceased is survived by. With Susan Sontag, no one is mentioned. I guess she was a lesbian.
They eat their young.
Michelle Malkin ~ Bump!
She was, and methinks that her galpal, widow is Wendy Wasstertsein. Corrections, please.
He son informed the press of her death.
Quoting the linked Washington Times review ...
At age 17, she married social psychologist Philip Rieff, then 28, just 10 days after meeting him at the University of Chicago. The couple had a son, David, born in 1952, but divorced in the 1960s. In later years, she described her lesbian relationship with photographer Annie Leibowitz as "an open secret."
