Fine, Go Ahead And Crucify Bill O’Reilly. Not That He’s Comparing Himself To Jesus. He’s Just Saying!

Bill O’Reilly sat down with WaPo Witchay Woman Sally Quinn to discuss Bill O’Reilly as the avatar of Christian meekness and humility. Among other insights, he explained that he’s just a regular guy who believes in God and Jesus very conventionally, and he gives back to God by going to church once a week and listening to boring priests who don’t know what they’re talking about. Asked for theological details, like whether he believes Jesus was sent by God, O’Reilly cut Quinn off and said “I believe the whole narrative. I’m going to accept it, because there’s no reason not to.” But he’s really cheesed off at “the secular-progressive movement,” which he says simply cannot accept any people of faith and take them seriously. They’re so condescending and they’re so arrogant that, even though you might be a brilliant person, if you believe, you’re an idiot. So that just knocks out the whole Jesuit organization. It knocks out Thomas Aquinas, Augustine. Everybody is knocked out because they believe. It’s so true — frankly, we’ve lost track of the number of times we’ve mocked Thomas Aquinas here on Yr. Wonkette. And don’t even get us started on Teilhard de Chardin — oh, the buttsechs jokes we have made about that guy!! Read more on Fine, Go Ahead And Crucify Bill O’Reilly.

Howard Kurtz Appoints Himself Chief Constabulary Of The Islamic Religious Police

Prepare to clutch your pearls, wonketeers. We have on our hands a tawdry display of vile sexuality that absolutely DEMANDS to be shown to the world. It seems that a politician errr, a journalist the private-citizen daughter-in-law of a retired journalist has put up some super-racy photos on the Facebooks! Gasp! and bring me a cool mint julep for my sensibilities have been affronted. And Howard Kurtz is ON THE CASE! Don’t remember who Howard Kurtz is? He used to be the host of CNN’s Reliable Sources, a teevee show dedicated to talking about the media, whereby media elites would talk to other media elites on the teevee about media folks on teevee and in journamilism. Apparently the show name Circle Jerk was already taken. After like a million years, he decided to jump ship for Fox News because apparently he was unable to express his full magnitude of dickishness at CNN. Fresh off getting his ass so fired from Daily Beast, Kurtz is fitting into his new role at Fox News nicely. Rather than report on actual news (you know, debt ceiling, Syria, immigration reform, Miley Cyrus), Kurtz bizarrely decided to attack Pari Bradlee, the daughter-in-law of respected Washington Post journalist Ben Bradlee: Her new [Facebook] profile picture, in a Swiss-cheese bra that leaves little to the imagination and long black leather sleeves and briefs, is so revealing that it drew a torrent of breathless comments. In another just-posted photo she is nude, shot from the back, twisting one arm behind her. Egads! We shall have to sexplore this unseemly graphic XXXXX-rated facebook stuff!  Read more on Howard Kurtz Appoints Himself Chief Constabulary Of The Islamic Religious Police…

Washington Post’s Sally Quinn Does Magick, Knows God Loves Mitt Romney

Vapid publisher’s spouse and party-planning expert Sally Quinn has heaved up another of her insightful “On Faith” columns. This is a person who has in the past used her column to explore the spiritual dilemmas involved in choosing a Dancing With the Stars victor; explaining that 50 Shades of Grey actually reflects a “religious phenomenon” (holy fuck!); oh, and by the way, no big deal, told a panel this week that she is a witch (we can hardly wait to see what the Maine GOP thinks of that!). So we were not expecting Deep Thought; but this time she’s gone especially shallow: When Mitt Romney mentioned the “Creator” in the debate Wednesday, he owned it. “We’re all children of the same God,” he said. That’s about 85 percent of the country he was talking to. That should have been President Obama’s constituency but he let Romney have it as he let Romney have the debate. We were not aware that it was actually possible to call dibs on The Almighty, but Mitt apparently did indeed own that round, and Obama compounded his error by missing the chance to call “shotgun.” Read more on Washington Post’s Sally Quinn Does Magick, Knows God Loves Mitt Romney…

Sally Quinn Squeezes Religion Into Op-Ed About Bristol Palin’s Dancing

My secret fantasy is to be on “Dancing” but of course I would never dare. I can see Len saying in a caustic British accent, “That was absolutely the worst Paso Doble I have ever seen in my 11 seasons on this show!” And Bruno, standing up, tearing at his hair, “What are you thinking?! Where is the passion? The sexuality? The character? That was PATHETIC!” And Carrie Ann, regretfully: “Sally, you’re a good journalist. Why do you want to put yourself through this?” Read more on Sally Quinn Squeezes Religion Into Op-Ed About Bristol Palin’s Dancing…

UHH… END OF AN ERA? LET’S GO WITH “END OF AN ERA”: Good heavens, the rumors of usurpation have been confirmed! A man “Broccoli” is eliminating the Washington Post‘s most important writing this side of Dana Priest: “The Washington Post has decided to no longer run Sally Quinn’s ‘The Party’ column in the print edition of the paper, following an uproar after she used it to weigh in on a family spat last Friday.” She will now have to write for the damnable Internet, that dangerous mating ground for woolly-bullies!

Sally Quinn, Speaking For America, As Usual

If you read ONLY ONE important (for national security) Washington Post column today, let it be this divine half-drunk prattling from Queen and Spokeswoman of the Washington Premier Socialite Village Lawn Party Country Club, Sally Quinn. Good Heavens! Amazing how offended the comfortably rich and connected 150-year landed gentry of this temporal, diamond-shaped government office park get when three NINNIES briefly puncture their esteemed bubble.

Sally Quinn Cordially Invites You to the Opening of Her Safe Room

We know know what Sally Quinn does in those hours when she’s not being the fabulous semi-employed spouse of Ben Bradlee: She’s about two Reynold’s Wrap-tubes short of being a member in the tin foil hat brigade, an ultra-prepared, paranoid (“Federal emergency authorities ‘not only lie, they don’t tell the truth.'”) urban survivalist who always carries a “N95 particle mask” and a jar of peanut butter. (Kinky.) On Monday, apparently between Chalabi-stalking appointments, she gave a talk to the Citizen’s Association of Georgetown, and she made it clear the lengths to which she’ll go to ensure her household is adequately prepared: “[S]he’d tried putting an N95 on Sparky, her now-deceased Shih Tzu, but it didn’t work.” We’re sure she’ll get right on a solution. Meanwhile, one quibble: Quinn has designated her laundry room as emergency shelter because it’s “easy to seal off.” However, “her food supply is heavy on the beans, ‘because they’re nutritious.'” No doubt, but sealing off a room full of people eating mostly beans? Maybe that’s what the masks are for. Read more on Sally Quinn Cordially Invites You to the Opening of Her Safe Room…
 

District Drunk Law Has Quinn Seeing Trouble

Yesterday, we discovered that the District’s drunk driving law allows arrests for driving even after just one drink. And we know this law’s disastrous unintended consequence: It has prompted a wistfully superior essay from Washington’s most famous former hostess, Sally Quinn. We suspect she left a fill-in-the-blank form for them on her desk when she left the Post. Hark, let us revisit her golden years: Read more on District Drunk Law Has Quinn Seeing Trouble…
