Breslin’s swan song

Breslin’s swan song

The arrogant, bigoted, anti-Catholic Jimmy Breslin writes his last column for New York Newsday and shows what a complete and utter buffoon and hack he has become. I don’t use those words lightly, but if you have ever read anything he’s written about the Church, you’ll know why.

One day last May, I assigned the election to John Kerry. I said it early, and often. As I looked more, I saw that it shouldn’t even be close. I said that in this space more than once. Now I am so sure that I am not even going to bother to watch the results tonight. I am going to bed early, for I must rise in the darkness and pursue immediately an exciting, overdue project. Besides, if I was up, so many people, upon seeing every word I said of this election coming true on television in front of them, would be kissing my hands and embarrassing me with outlandish praise.

Nice swan song, Jimmy. Prove to the world how brilliant you are.

  • Joining the emeritus ranks of the esteemed novelist, Norman Mailer, and the Karl Marx of Chicago, Studs Terkel, is he?  When these guys pass on to the great late night bar in the sky, the US liquor industry will suffer an economic depression.  And their books will gather cobwebs in cheap, used bookstores.
