The Washington Post doesn't really hire humorists to be funny. They seem to hire liberals that think they're funny, but really want to be liberals first. The Internet chat on Tuesday with "ComPost" blogger and humorist Alexandra Petri was a Santorum-bashing festival. If you want to see how liberals ooze their intellectual superiority at each other, this is a destination. One joked that Santorum should repeal female suffrage. Petri joked back: "at the rate he and his ideas are polling among the Petticoat Despots, a 19th-amendment repeal would be a pretty savvy move on Santorum's part."
They also joked that Santorum and should really move to banning masturbation next. Petri joked back: "I think Orwell's whole 1984 world had constant sexual frustration as one of its undergirding principles."
