Poddy & Bell

Steve Sailer saves me the trouble of pointing out the serial idiocy of John Podheretz in NRO's the Corner. I especially enjoyed his reformulation of one Poddy post: "Sorry, pal. If you're born a Podhoretz, you get to make a living offering your opinions, no matter how big of a jerk and fool you are. Period. That's how it works, and thank God for it, otherwise a great deal of the money made in the 21st century by Podhoretz relatives would not have come to pass."

Now if he could perform the Sailer magic on Warren Bell, whose deep thoughts are now gracing the corner. "No doubt whatsoever that the Squarepantsed One would be the best choice for my sons, George W. Bush, and the nation. He firmly believes in law and order (see the Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy episodes). He has stopped the evil Plankton many times from stealing the Krabby Patty recipe, so he would similarly stop Breyer and Ginsburg from stealing the Constitution. He is absorbent, so if sat next to Scalia and Thomas would quickly soak up the right ideas. And perhaps most importantly, as Plankton notes in the SBSP Movie, his chops are too righteous."
