A Better Thrashing

Mark Steyn also was appalled by the Boston Globe’s highly euphemistic description of the Edwards bloggers, but delivered a much better thrashing to the folks on Morrissey Boulevard than I:

“Allegedly insensitive”? You’re referring to two foul-mouthed gals who call Christians “Godbags” and do semen gags about the Virgin Mary and sneer at stillbirths, and all you can say about it is “came under attack for allegedly insensitive statements”? That’s not the story, that’s the sound of the genteel Victorian matron discreetly draping chintz over the provocative piano legs of the story…

True, but the Globe does that most every day, Mark.
