Malkinmania 2010

One thing I didn’t mention in the full write-up at NYU Local–but which, I think, is still worth noting–is just how dreadfully boring this entire thing was. I don’t mean “boring” in the sense that I often criticize journalists for using when talking about speeches or debates in which a politician is insufficiently shocking or combative; what I mean is intellectually emaciated.

NYU Republicans President Michael Collins, who introduced Malkin, called her “very intellectual,” but what made her speech and the ensuing Q&A so dull was that she had no real ideas to offer. Instead, all she really did was air her long list of grievances.

Not that one should expect anything more, of course, given that long lists of grievances are basically the heart and soul of modern conservative political thought.
