A MEME IS BORN
1. In The Village Voice, lefty Richard Goldstein compares General Wesley Clark to Ashley Wilkes. (Scroll down to the paragraph that begins, "You can bet your brewski....")
2. Reading the comparison, the folks at Lucianne Goldberg's Web site squeal with delight. (Scroll down to the first item in "Short Cuts.")
3. Then Limbaugh picks it up.
Coming soon: Every far-right op-ed columnist in America repeats the comparison, as does Maureen Dowd, and as do alleged non-Republicans Mickey Kaus, Mike Barnicle, Chris Matthews, Mark Shields....
Goldstein should demand a royalty.
