Should Hagiography Wait Until The Subject Has, Regrettably, Passed?

Maybe Tina Brown was literarily spoofed by someone wanting her to appear the demented love child of Andrew Sullivan and Rachel Maddow:

The idea of losing Hillary has seemed especially unbearable at this political moment. It’s as if she has become, literally, the ship of state. She stands for maturity, tenacity, and self-discipline at a time when everyone else in Washington seems to be, in more senses than one, going off a cliff—a parade of bickering, blustering, small-balled hacks bollixing up the nation’s business. She’s a caring executive too, and that takes its own emotional toll. What a disgrace that John Bolton and his goaty Republican ilk accused Her Magnificence of inventing a concussion to get out of testifying at the Benghazi hearings. Bolton is not fit to wipe her floor with his mustache.

This blog must double down on its unwavering stance regarding the physical condition of this storied civil servant:

And, indeed, Hillary has exited the hospital building. Let’s hope she chills out in Hawaii with the Preshizzle and doesn’t get too stressed about matters.

    Someone is taking the “hag” part of hagiography too literally…

    You should link Stacy’s Talking Tina post from yesterday for those who need background on this publishing giant, or giant douche.

    I hope she was stoned or drunk when she wrote that. Otherwise she’s got no excuse. Even still, it would suck to wake up the next morning, puke a bit, brush your teeth, and then say “Jeez, you won’t believe the weird dream I had…” right before glancing at this dreck over your name.

    But that would be much better than having to admit “Okay, look, I was really really stupid, okay? It’s a condition I have.”
