Sing It, Gail!

You pushed away the severe storm
You made us believe, Comrade Nancy
We cannot live without you
Our country cannot exist without you!

Our future and hope depend on you
People’s fate depends on you, Comrade Nancy!
We cannot live without you
Our country cannot exist without you!

Even if the world changes hundreds of times
People believe in you, Comrade Nancy
We cannot live without you
Our country cannot exist without you!

Oh… Our Comrade Nancy
Our country cannot exist without you!

Dear Leader.

Dear God.

This is an American journalist? Or rather a columnist for a major American newspaper? This is “All the news that’s fit to print?”

Two words: Get Help.

    Jeez, that column should have come with a warning to don my hip-waders before reading it.

    Gail Collins has reverted to the overheated passions of her schoolgirl days. Her perverse crush on Nasty Nancy is stunningly inappropriate for the opinion pages of the NY Times. Down girl!

    Collins resurrects an old rhetorical exercise, in Elizabethan times students were expected to hone their rhetorical skills by writing erudite encomiums to worthless objects.

    It’s called adoxography, or written praise of trivial or base objects.

    I disagree–this is perfectly appropriate for the NYT, given what I know about the NYT. Super-perfect, in my opinion.

    And, come ON, Phineas–NYT readers expect, if not DEMAND, such drivel.

    Gaius, your poem was a most excellent condensation of he column.
