SOUNDBITES — “Now that the dust has settled and the homicidal emails have slowed to a trickle, I realize that I owe you a debt of gratitude. By dropping the First Elf in the poop, you have unwittingly provided me with a searing insight into the pathetic and disastrous state of our comment-obsessed culture. Thanks to you, I see now that there are two kinds of people in the world: In the first group, we have those who “do,” and in the second group, we have those who sit at their computers on their ever-widening asses blogging, platforming and commenting on the not-always-perfect efforts of the first group. Tinselgate has renewed my commitment to keep my tight ass fairly and squarely plonked in that first group.” —Barney’s creative director Simon Doonan, who decorated the White House for Christmas only to have Andrew Breitbart’s website Big Government post photos of tree ornaments featuring Obama on Mt. Rushmore, New York drag performer Hedda Lettuce, and a Warhol-y Mao, in an incident heretofore known as Tinselgate (via)
