Atlas Shrugged: The Mocking

Mr. Relevant

Shorter Ross Douthat: Jesus Christ on a pogo stick, what does a manly intellectual have to do to get noticed around here? God is a conservative, do you hear me? He gives life, that's conservative! And America is conservative! Just look, people are being forced to spend less money--that's conservative! And see that woman over there? She's pregnant and that means she's conservative too! And that rock--it never changes! Conservative! You too, young people! You'll be conservative too some day! Come back here! I'm not done speaking, whippersnappers!

Douthat can usually be counted on for a little sexual perversity & unintentional humor.

Not today. This one would put a Broder fan to sleep.

Real sleep! Not "put to sleep" as in euthanasia. No rush, guys. Stick around until next year, when there's no estate tax.

Yes, it's a snoozer. Douthat's not exactly setting the world on fire at the Times. He's been Left Behind when he thought he'd been Raptured.
