"It's all good."
Kathryn Jean Lopez says if you are a "normal American," that is, from a conservative state, it's okay to make incest jokes. Little Miss Panty Sniffer, professional moral scold, thinks it's okay to make incest jokes if you're Dick Cheney. An e-mailer tells her that calling him and his neighbors pedophiles and incest victims doesn't go over too well. Lopez is a non-entity in the blogworld, but she's a tireless pusher of Republican talking points. She floods the Corner with red meat for the other, more clever, writers to chew over. She's a gossip-column reading, church-going person of limited intelligence and endless busyness. No nook or cranny is too small for her to search for a sinner, and no leader is ever wrong. In other words, she's their base, and if the propaganda works on Kathryn Jean, it'll probably work on everyone else.
