I thought it was about Mel, then we got to the money shot:

“Conservative America’s new signature movement, the Tea Party, has its own extremes, but it shuns culture-war battles. It even remained mum when a federal judge in Massachusetts struck down the anti-same-sex marriage Defense of Marriage Act this month. As the conservative commentator Kyle Smith recently wrote in The New York Post, the “demise of Reagan-era groups like the Christian Coalition and the Moral Majority is just as important” as the rise of the Tea Party. “The morality armies have failed to inspire their children to join the crusade,” he concluded, and not unhappily. The right, too, is subject to generational turnover.”

This guy has really been saving it up. Although I imagine if King Samir Shabazz called him a “dirty cracker hymie” and bitch-slapped him, he would apologize for drawing breath and slink away guiltily.

I heard this morning that Mel is reuniting with his ex wife and moving back to Australia - prayers for him have been answered very quickly.

I’d be his mate (Aussie buddy) if he needs one.

Mel (not the Gibson variety)

...pampered zillionaire icon (Gibson’s production company is actually named Icon)...

Gibson has explained that the company’s name was chosen because icon means “image” in Greek, and that the inspiration came from a book on Russian icons in his den. The logo's artwork appears to be a small crop of the Theotokos of Vladimir icon, an Eastern Orthodox icon of Mary, mother of Jesus.

So the writer is trying to smear the entire Conservative movement because of Mel’s tirade?
