The rise and fall of the insufferable twit Tucker Carlson

The reference to Tucker Carlson as a “twit” in the headline above is as well-advised as it is snarky.

A Google search of his name and the T-word produces tens of thousands of results. It’s as if he invented twittiness. He’s like the eternal frat boy — born to the manor and smug as hell.

Alex Pareene of Salon is out with a longish and scathing profile of Carlson, detailing his decline from prominent and respectable magazine writer to right-wing hack at a mostly sleazy Web site he co-founded, the Daily Caller.

For two reasons, I’m not going to offer any excerpts from Pareene’s piece: 1) There’s too much profanity in the best parts; and 2) Snippets don’t do the effort justice.

    Tucker attended a boarding school which pretty much sums up his twitness.
