  1. Would have been funny. I can just imaine him saying to some lefty (male) journo “Now, listen here sweetie, it’s like this….”

    And watch their paroxysms of difficulty in dealing with him.

  2. Christopher Hitchens reincarnated (kinda, sorta). When he’s got himself under control he’s exceptionally effective.

  3. The Inimitable Steve

    I love Milo, but he’s our magnificent homosexual. The Yanks can get their own.

    Though I won’t object if they want Owen Jones.

    Rob – Owny always puts me in mind of John Hurt’s portrayal of Richard Rich in A Man For All Seasons.

  5. I’m a great fan of Milo but his crusade needs him not to be tied down with the minutae of gubermint.

    Get a pro for that (as Trumpy seems to have done) and Milo can carry on his dangerous faggot head-exploding mission.

  6. Exporting Owen?

    Would be a great Christmas present. But really, the States?

    I think certain areas of the Middle East would be far better destinations. He could try getting some of them to cross to his side of the road and see how that works out.

    And if that is too risqué, then we will always have Venezuela.

  7. Yes, Venezuela. We need Owen appointed as spokesman for food shortages. He would have to tour the country, meeting citizens at supermarkets and explain why socialism has left the shelves empty. He might even make it to the end of the first week if he is good.

  8. ‘The RNC’s chief strategist will have his work cut out for him spinning for the unpredictable Trump’

    “He has no chance; the Trump Administration is DOA.”

    That’s what they mean. And Salon will do all it can to help that eventuality. Fourth estate, freedom of the press, yada, yada, yada.

  9. Has Owen ever been to Venezuela? Perhaps we could crowdfund him a ticket. Frankly, that’s the kind of reality TV car crash Guardian journalism for which I’d pay good money.

  10. Andrew, we should just appeal to Theresa to make him ambassador to the Bolivarian Republic.

    Seamus can go to Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.

    They can report back in 4 years on their findings, until then we don’t want to hear from them.

    Dan – it’s comforting to know that in these troubled times Britain still produces the world’s best gays. We’ve got Milo, Elton John, George Michael, never-had-a-girlfriend Mancunian warbler Morrissey, and Sir Ian McKellen.

    The Yanks have… Obama.

    Gamecock – “He has no chance; the Trump Administration is DOA.”

    That’s what they mean. And Salon will do all it can to help that eventuality.

    The press is like that hysterical SJW badgering Ivanka and her kids on a flight the other day.

    I don’t think it’ll end well for them.

  12. ‘I don’t think it’ll end well for them.’

    I think they are angry because the end HAS COME. My theory is that the left is driven by

    . . . wait for it . . .


    The Leftist government is their companion and family. The Trump victory, Brexit, et al, represent the disbanding of their family, and they are devastated, as devastated as losing a spouse.

  13. Should have gone for Comical Ali, known to the Yanks as Baghdad Bob. The former Iraqui information minister. Very good at his job.

  14. The Inimitable Steve

    Gamecock – I think you’re on to something. Politics isn’t just another part of life to progressives, like sport or business or pigeon fancying.

    It’s deeply personal and all-encompassing, more like a religious faith.

    Hedgehog – Obama is definitely a power bottom.

  15. Milo talks too fast. He needs to take a deep breath and think for a bit. Just because someone asks you a question doesn’t mean you have to give an immediate 1000 word answer.

  16. Bloke in Costa Rica

    Steve: People like Laurie Penny and the Ivanka-bothering feygele the other day are the Marxist equivalent of trainspotters. Their inability to see anything except through the lens of progressive wankery is positively autistic. They have no hinterland. It must be fucking exhausting in Lefty-land. The Nazis had this idea of Gleichschaltung, where ideology permeated every nook and cranny of life like a fumigant. They were fucking weird, too. Normal people can switch off the politics. SJWs can’t.

  17. It appears to me that Trump is picking patriots, people who want to help the country, and not ambitious politicians looking to get their ticket punched.

    I think Trump likes Milo, but I suspect he thinks Milo is too involved with his agenda.
