Who’s Afraid Of The Big, Bad Michelle Wolf?

If you haven’t heard, members of the White House Correspondents’ Association were outraged by comedian Michelle Wolf’s dinner speech. Supposedly, this was the evil, awful part (about Sarah Huckabee Sanders):

“She burns facts, and then she uses the ash to create a perfect smoky eye [makeup look].”

Hunh? The press corps interpreted that as attacking Huckabee* Sanders’ looks, which should be off-limits, when, in fact, it was attacking her veracity and honesty (which is completely fair game).

Two points:

  1. For a group of people who style themselves as cynical, worldly, hard-bitten, tough, and so on, they really do get bent out of shape rather easily.
  2. Does anyone believe for a moment that if Wolf hadn’t made the makeup remark, conservative operatives and their useful press corps idiots wouldn’t have found something else to be outraged by? Of course they would have. It’s what they do.

Also, it’s good to see Kathy Griffin back in the game.
