Pummelling the Franzen Dummy

Re: Last week's review of the Jonathan Franzen story.

Sometimes it feels like overkill, but the guy is such an easy target, I know if I ever run out of material for this blog, all I have to do is find if he's published anything lately. We have the combination of two factors: 1.) He's the establishment's Great Hope to become a great writer; 2.) He's the biggest stooge in American letters today.

Seriously. Some of the ULA's opponents are outright evil, yet somewhat bright (D.E.). Franzen is just clueless-- the person who did indeed just fall off the proverbial turnip truck.

And so, we at the ULA have set up a metaphorical punching bag with Jonathan Franzen's name on it, there to whack anytime he makes a public utterance, accepts taxpayer money he doesn't need, or publishes something.
