Elizabeth Wurtzel takes a drubbing from both the mainstream press and virtually every blogger for her disgusting interview. The much deserved drubbings may be found at these links with my favorite quote, in alphabetical order:
A Dog’s Life: My feelings are adequately summed up by the title of her second book.
Andrew Sullivan: It doesn’t get any Wurtzel.
Daily Pundit: I think you should join some group that involves wet-sheet restraints and allosaurus-sized doses of your favorite drug.
Daimnation: Wurtzel wrote her second book, Bitch, while snorting crushed Ritalin pills. That explains a lot.
Ken Layne: Sure, Ms. Jackass. Too bad there’s not much need for spoiled, whining little girls when we’re at War. Oh, it’s so post-post-modern and all. Thousands of people being killed … yawn, what does that have to do about me? I had a prescription! Don’t I matter?
Midwest Conservative Journal: Jus an introduction to Chris’s regularly appearing feature, And Now… Idiots with the coment: Perhaps the most mind-boggling Idiot that has ever been featured in this category.
New York Post: Despite numerous frantic phone calls to her Greenwich Street apartment, not far from the World Trade Center, the emotionally stunted scribe couldn’t be bothered to get out of bed until the second plane crashed, reports the Toronto Globe and Mail. When she finally did drag herself to a window and saw the towers collapse, Wurtzel says, “I had not the slightest emotional reaction. I thought, ‘This is a really strange art project.’ ” Then her windows blew in and airplane chunks landed on her roof.
The Opinion Journal: No comments really, just inclusion in their Stupidity Watch.
Ted Barlow: Ted is actually asking for help so we can berate Wurtzel more. If you can locate this cartoon, let us know.
There was a great cartoon in Suck a few years ago which had Wurtzel begging her mom to sleep with her so that she’d have something to write about. I wish I could find it.
If I have missed anyone, let me know and I will update. I hope she googles herself.
