The Corner

Ah, Fr. Greeley

From that column:

How many of the male readers of this column who are habitues of bars, locker rooms, commuter train bull sessions, pool rooms and men’s clubs have not heard the indigenous racial slurs of such environments applied to Obama?

I think I’ll raise my hand now, even though I am not a habitué of all of those types of establishments. I haven’t even gotten nasty emails about Obama’s race, and I get some creepy emails. (For the guy who sent me the long email about “Lieberjew” yesterday: Yes, that means you.)
