The Onion, 9-year-old girls, and very naughty words

February 26th, 2013 by Vader

Lileks pretty much nails the show of hypocrisy.   

This is what I love the most: all of a sudden, there’s a boundary! A useful and important one, at that. You spend your whole life erasing boundaries in the name of Satire, pride yourself on your untrammeled tongue, and shazam it turns out that your work and the work of so many others has coarsened the culture in a way that was just so brave and absolutely delightful riiiight up until the moment when you were appalled.

I  am reminded of an editorial I once read, by Norman Lear, decrying the spiritual vacuum he saw in America. You know: Norman Lear, the guy who spent a career tearing down traditional values with shows like All in the Family.

He blamed the spiritual vacuum on conservatives.
