In response to The New York Times ‘News Analysis:’ Review of Tsarnaev’s Tweets Reveals a ‘Holden Caufield-Like Adolescent Alienation’:
How in hell is anyone supposed to make a living as a satirist when the New York Times keeps upping the ante?
Case in point:
Guy sends 268 people to the hospital, and the NYTimes want to rewrite him as the new Holden Caulfield. #BomberInTheRye

When I tweeted that last night, it was in response to the Times’ bizarre stream of “poor little misfit alienated immigrant teen” profile puff-pieces. It was (as satire is suppose to be) an intentional exaggeration meant to make a point. As God is my witness, I swear I had no idea they would ACTUALLY LIKEN HIM TO HOLDEN CAULFIELD.
Good Lord, I need a drink.
