We have been drawn, via our referrals, to some new thing called the Atlantic Wire, which tells you what every pundit and blogger is writing about at all times! It is the anti-porn. But “incoherence” is our goal here, so thank you weird new hyperspeed Atlantic thing! [Atlantic Wire]

  1. They have a sidebar about Carrie Prejean’s sex tape “The battle between the beauty queen and gay rights advocates hits bottom”
    So is it a spanking video then?

  2. Phew, for a second there was a shortage of reporters reporting about other reporters. Thanks, the Atlantic, for meta-covering this important navel.

  3. Wonkette isn’t anywhere in the top 50, so I don’t think this list has any legitimacy. The ticker thingy was going by, but that’s mostly annoying and I didn’t want to wait to see if Jim came up in incoherence again. This looks like it might be a good device to remind me when I’ve missed Frank Rich, however.

    I watched a 30 minute online conference with Linda Feldman of the CS Monitor, so I can skip the rest of this shit.

    Wonkette/CSM: Keeping my world balanced between the hyper incoherent and the hyper coherent.

  4. WAR BLOG!

    W-A-R B-L-O-G!!!!!

    We’ll drive those Mutherfudkin’ Swine into the se . . . .

    Oh, wait a minute.

    It’s “The Atlantic.”

    Never mind.

  5. Incoherent and abusive about incoherent abuse? So, a negative plus a negative equals a positive? That is, coherence? How dare you Jim Newell! Oh the humanity!

  6. The fucking “Atlantic Wire”?! Doesn’t Big Marconi realize we can see right through these sham advocacy groups for underwater cables?!

  7. To fight the Atlantic, you must be Pacific. Being specific is no substitute for being elastic. In every abuse there is a bus, and every bus backs up into a sub, with which the resourceful captain may chart new depths. Being pacific in his sub-bus of abuse, a continent of elastic discontinuity, whose bounty is unending and ever bending.

  8. I’m not familiar with this “Jim Newell” person, why is he deemed to be so influential with his trenchant invocations of buttsecks all the time?

  9. Dear AtlanticWhatever, If Jim Newell can’t be incoherent and abusive at Wonkette, what would be the appropriate venue? Surely you don’t expect him to hold it in? Inquisitively, Jukesgrrl

  10. They need to make up their mind. I don’t think you can be one of “the most influential opinion makers” and “incoherent” at the same time. Can you? I’m pretty sure Republicans put that one to rest years ago.

  11. “Incoherent.” – Michael Medved, Newsday

    “Abusive.” – Rex Reed, Variety

    “Incoherent and Abusive.” – The Ticker, The Atlantic

    “I think he may have been trying to be abusive, but his incoherence made it difficult to say.” – Oscar Wilde, Punch
