Kathryn Jean Lopez (NRO Editor) does not know what Irony is.

via firedoglake via The General himself.

With respect to General JC Christian (patriot [heterosexual patriot])'s review of "Women Who Make the World Worse," she writes

Of course, we didn’t really need the admission; the lead customer review on Amazon for a few days now — besides citing “her frequent attacks against the television show, ‘Sex in the City,’” (good luck finding them in the book — they aren’t in there) — says:

As much as I enjoyed this book, I can't give it more than a single star because it has a fatal flaw. It promotes the most destructive myth of all, the existence of lesbianism. Mrs. O'Beirne discusses it throughout the book as if it is something that is real. She doesn't seem to be able to understand that women can't have sex with each other.

There’s not a single mention of lesbians in the book. That reviewer’s got his own vast-right-wing-conspiracy book fantasy going on.


I can only assume that K-Lo thinks it is funny to pretend that she is taking the general seriously. Sad to say, it is not. Unless she really really didn't notice that the General shouldn't be taken literally. Oh and since when has Lopez been in the habit of cutting off "little soldiers"

(Yglesias reminds us of the importance of the use mention distinction).
