Since she has some unreadable new book to promote, apparently Salon is happy to inform us at the usual interminable length. Kathleen gets many of the most egregious bits, although this being Paglia* pretty much every paragraph is so asinine it could sustain an essay making fun of it. One thing I’d like to add is the particularly hilarious context of her claims about the Stalinist nature of the PPACA:
My third reason for going Green is the creeping totalitarianism of Obamacare, which Jill Stein as a physician is rightly skeptical about. I began denouncing the Obamacare bill in my Salon column within two months after Obama’s inauguration.
Sadly, I’m sure Paglia really believes that Steins problems with the PPACA stem from it representing too much government intervention into health care. I mean, she joins Matt Stoller and the Republicans on the NYT op-ed page as the only people in the world deluded enough to think that President Mitt Romney would be a Rockefeller Republican.
*The most charitable explanation for Salon publishing this is that it’s an attempt to lure the Editors out of retirement. It had better work!
