NewsBusters Heathering Watch
Topic: NewsBusters

Kathleen Parker is so not invited to P.J. Gladnick's pool party.

We've previously identified Gladnick at one of the Heathers at NewsBusters who denounce anyone to commits the offense of straying too far from conservative dogma, and conservative columnist Parker as a frequent heathering victim.

Gladnick performs the heathering deed in a Sept. 9 post assailing Parker for criticizing the right-wing disruptors of congressional town halls:

Kathleen Parker has an interesting little shtick.

Few noticed her when she was writing from a conservative point of view...until she started attacking conservatives about a year ago. Then she went whole hog and has made a lucrative new career of attacking conservatives...while still going through the motions of pretending to be conservative. 

Gladnick's main reason for kicking Parker out of his treehouse? She used the word "teabagger" to describe the protesters, which Gladnick declared to be "insulting both the townhall and tea protesters."

Gladnick concludes: "If there were truth in advertising for newspaper columns, this one would contain this disclaimer: "Kathleen Parker is not a conservative, she just plays one in the media." Meanwhile, we'll have to assume that Gladnick's answer to the immortal question "Did you have a brain tumor for breakfast?" is to the positive.
