These are Stephen Sherrill's other pieces for GQ:

 

  • My 9 Most Amazing, Most Decisive Decisions Stephen Sherrill imagines what a book proposal by the greatest forty-third president in history—George W. Bush—might look like - this features a cartoon of George Bush which looks like a chimp, which if this was about Mohammed would result in a death fatwa.
  • Welcome to Congress! A complete guide to the "Take America Back" class of 2010 - looks like the prequel to '20 craziest'
  • Can Anyone Beat Barack Obama? The race for the GOP nomination promises to be a street fight. So to make things a little less gory, here's some advice for Mr. President's would-be challenger - pretty much in this one Sherrill lies prostrate.
  • The Nutty Professor We all know that Newt Gingrich is a gifted teacher of history. But here is GQ's exclusive look at the curriculum for the correspondence class The Newtitor plans to teach from the Oval Office once he makes his inevitable return to power (it's predicted by history!) - oh yes I'm sure this was fair & balanced...

 

 

I don't mind people with a partisan point of view, and unlike some I think partisanship and partisan argument from both ends is necessary and even good sometimes, what I find fascinating is how Tim so completely falls in line with this guy and fails to self-reflect on his own partisanship, which is determinedly on the left.

 

Have you self-reflected on your own rightwing partisanship?

 

 

I have, glad to talk about it, but I can tell you that if I posted an article from a Breitbart writer I'd be pretty up front about it rather than pretend it reflects some centrist, purely objective viewpoint. I must say I try awfully hard not to post such articles here though, not only for that reason but also because they would be immediately dismissed out of hand.

 

 

I am not Tim's biggest fan, but you arent being fair here. He posted an article from GQ (not really the equivalent of Breitbart, and the author is really a political humorist, something all Breitbart writers are unintentionally), and never claimed it was centrist, purely objective viewpoint. Anyone with half a brain who looked at it would see it was political humor, but you are here mischaracterizing the context of Tim presenting it. And then Tim clearly explained his own position on the subject of GOP KooK craziness, which is the exact opposite of self-reflection, it seems.

 

 

I think the articles posted could easily be posted in any liberal/progressive counterpart of Breitbart. The fact that they appear in a mainstream mag as GQ just shows how things are perceived.

 

There is a whole other thread on this magazine article, I could delve into it but I won't (glad to pick it up in that thread, which I don't think I commented in).

 

I think when Tim and the author cross the line from "those crazy politicians!" (let's face it, lots of fodder out there) to "it so true, 17/20th's of them really are gopper!" it gets partisan, which is ok, like I said, but admit it.

 

 

Is it partisan to point out the KooKs? And is it partisan if there are more KooKs in one political party than the other?

 

If you yourself are a KooK, can you hear if a KooK tree falls in the woods?

Did you miss the part where Tim agreed with the assessment and did not find the article showed biased?

 

 

Which shows Tim does self-reflect on his partisanship.

 

Tim should just identify as anti-KooK, like me and all other patriotic Americans.

I would say if there is one person who is more in denial than Tim on his political bias, it would be Todd "I am an independent" Andrews.  Saints is more than capable of looking at things objectively, and readily admits his personal bias. 

 

 

KooK says what?
