Greg Gutfeld's slowburn epiphany
In his latest commentary, he suggests that bloggers like me are just like the "evil people" like "the al Qaeda dude." Yeah, he's clearly an idiot who should be ignored, but the short bio he gives at the end is just too funny.
GUTFELD: Yeah, I used to edit Maxim UK...So, let's get this straight. After 9-11, Greg Gutfeld's worldview was so altered that he gave up a job editing a boob-centric magazine for teenage boys in the United States to take a job editing a boob-centric magazine for teenage boys in the UK. Oh, how much he must have been rocked to the core.
FOX ANCHOR: You've gotten awfully political in the past few years.
GUTFELD: Well, after 9-11 it's hard not to. You know, I was at Stuff in New York when it happened and I was in London during the bombings. So, if your mindset doesn't change, then basically you're living in a hole.
In the end he pretty much made an ass out of himself in the process (see here and here) and lowered the magazine's circulation by 16%.
So, after screwing himself out of his editing job, it seems he's decided to join the ranks of hucksters who make a living by tossing red-meat-filled-screeds to the loyal conservazombies. Of course he'll start with Fox News, but he'll end up writing Gutted: Eviscerating the Left's 'Hate America' Mindset or some other bullshit. It'll sell like hotcakes.
Funny, but, despite all his recent spouting about the left, Gutfeld said just last year that Americans
don't have strong feelings about politicians...in general. We do detest however, emotional people who suddenly become "politically active." Michael Stipe. Green Day. Chris Martin. They require daily beatings.I welcome Gutfeld's obviously sudden choice to become politically active.
I also volunteer to beat him first.
