If you are going to try to be bitter, biting, and funny in an op-ed, while taunting your opponent, this is how you do it. Go read Dennis Miller take on Norman Mailer.
With six marriages under his belt, one would assume Mr. Mailer has a stranglehold on warfare. One would be wrong.
and this gem:
Ironically, Mr. Mailer seems to see everything in the world in terms of black and white, except of course, good and evil.
And as Mr. Mailer’s prostate gradually supplants his ego as the largest gland in his body, he’s going to have to realize, as is the case with all young lions who inevitably morph into Bert Lahr, that his alleged profundities are now being perceived as the early predictors of dementia.
Good clean fun.
I love Dennis. The older he gets, the more conservative he gets. The more conservative he gets, the sexier he is. One day, John, he may even rival you!
Dennis ought to consider the verbal-flaying-and-rolling-in-salt bit as a hobby. I know I would enjoy it a great deal.
