Wick Continues to Dominate Intertubes With Obama Endorsement

The thing is, those of us who work with Wick sometimes have a hard time taking him seriously. The other day, for instance, I was having a conversation with Wick and an unnamed gay co-worker about whether this semi-ironic paean to last season’s Cowboys-Bills game was appropriate for D Magazine. Wick said he just wasn’t interested. The gay co-worker said he thought the story was right for us and that he’d definitely read it. Whereupon Wick said, “Well, I’m gayer than you are.” I used to keep a list of Wick’s outrageous pronouncements. The project threatened to consume me, so I had to abandon it.

So we forget. Before he went insane, Wick published the National Review. And, therefore, when he comes out for Obama, it’s kind of a big deal. Andrew Sullivan thinks so.

    When I first read Wick’s editorial in the current issue (the first of five times thus far) I thought of my favorite movie when I was a kid: The Day The Earth Stood Still.

    Yes, we should all scrape and bow before the mighty Andrew Sullivan. Puh-lease.

    Rawlins: So, Wick=Gort? I can see that.

  4. Wes, did you mean to post that in the gay Lupe thread?

    Just stopped reading D, FrontBurner, and SideDish. Call me when you guys have Wick back on his meds…

    That NFL films style write up of the Buffalo game last year is great. Excellent job by Eric and Zac. Very funny stuff.

    This is clear-cut, Edmund Burke conservatism at its best.
