Why Do People Like Greg Gutfield?

I only mentioned Greg Gutfield in passing once before, because he said something sometime on Huffington Post, where he writes meandering posts ripping (who cares if they deserve it? It's Huffington Post. It's like telling Ian McKellan he's gay) everyone else who puts posts on the site. He revels in playing the asshole, chain-smoking, alcoholic, conservative who, through his smart-ass observations, shows he knows more than you. You know who else does that? Christopher Hitchens. Do you know the difference between Hitchens and Gutfield? Hitchens actually knows more than you. And me. And he's a contrarion, not an asshole. Well, he's kind of an asshole, too. Anway, Salon has a little piece about what kind of reality shows creative people would make, and they include Gutfield, and promise more Gutfield for the next segment. Who knew there was such demand for former editors of Stuff, Maxim, and Men's Health? By the way, that's the magazine equivalent of wearing a ball cap sideways, calling gay people "fags" and date-raping a co-worker. Anyway, check out Gutfield's section - it's not all that creative, nor is it very funny. It's kind of like "Everybody Loves Raymond" in that way. It's about zombies. Is he playfully tweaking the fascination our culture has with shitty zombie movies, or does he really think it would be cool? Who cares? He edited Maxim.
