DISPATCHED FROM THE CROSSROADS, AT THE intersection OF whore & who?

Whore With No Name

Today's rant is about @nn C0ult*r -- you know who I mean. I'm disguising her name, so she can't get any more publicity from the search engines. In my mind, she is not a right-wing thinker. She is simply a whore.

Her attack of the 9/11 widows has nothing to do with what she believes. Her only question to herself is "how outrageous do I have to be to get on all the talk shows?"

Ever since I read "The Great Gatsby" in high school, I've wanted to use the word "meretricious" in a sentence. About Jay Gatsby:

His parents were shiftless and unsuccessful farm people - his imagination had never really accepted them as his parents at all. The truth was that Jay Gatsby of West Egg, Long Island, sprang from his Platonic conception of himself. He was a son of God...and he must be about His Father's business, the service of a vast, vulgar, and meretricious beauty. So he invented...Jay Gatsby...and to this conception he was faithful to the end.

Definitions:

1a. Attracting attention in a vulgar manner: meretricious ornamentation. b. Plausible but false or insincere; specious: a meretricious argument. 2. Of or relating to prostitutes or prostitution: meretricious relationships.

She fits the definition in every respect. She's a big-boned gal with bleached hair and skimpy dresses, trying to make up for the awkwardness she no doubt suffered in adolesence. She wanted to be both beautiful and brainy, and has invented a simulacrum, smearing on eye shadow and spewing out pronouncements that are nothing but non sequiturs.

People are trying to figure out how she serves the Republican party. Is she boldly speaking their truth? Is she distracting the talk shows from the real issues? Is she the right-wing Michael Moore? Or is she just an embarrassment?

I think she's just a whore. Out for nothing but her own bank account.
