"If You Say, 'Global Warming is the Biggest Threat,' You Will Get Laid."
Greg Gutfeld, the host of Fox's Red Eye—the Fox show that's featured Reasonoids Kerry Howley and Nick Gillespie among its acid array of pundits—is profiled in the New York Observer.
While Mr. Gutfeld tries to keep the show from idling too long on partisan territory ("They get that 23 hours a day"), his own politics are fairly at home on Fox. He dismisses liberalism as "romantic notions that are false, based on the idea of making yourself look good to other people. That's why most men—Bill Clinton is a good example—are liberal, because they need to get laid. If you look at most left-wing guys, they've made a deal with the devil. They don't really believe that shit—they're going against their own innate nature, because liberalism is anti-man. If you believe that peace and love work, you're not a man, because this world works on war. The only people who respect you are people who are scared of you—and that's why Reagan was a great President. And the idea that you can negotiate with people who want you dead is a complete lie. That's why the left is the most self-absorbed, vanity-driven enterprise. These are people who would rather feel good about themselves at a cocktail party that actually protect people's lives. If you're at a party and you say, 'The war on terror is the most important thing in the world'—you won't get a nod. But if you say, 'Global warming is the biggest threat,' you will get laid."
It's a long, sordid tale of getting ahead in journalism and worth a read.
