Erica Jong says Matt Taibbi wants to fuck his mom! But he can't, so instead he channeled that desire into print by calling Hillary Clinton's arms "flabby." It's all part of the feminist author Jong's theory of "Misogyny, Momism, and Militarism," which she chronicled on the Huffington Post. "Momism is a kind of Oedipal obsession with the bad mother — to counter a boy's attraction to his good mother...You cannot fuck your mother so you must revile her," she explains. Taibbi, the angry Rolling Stone writer who is the most entertaining political journo in America, surprisingly took offense to Jong's logical inference that his use of an accurate adjective in a magazine story pointed to his own desire for incest. So he replied: you're an old, ignorant hack, Erica Jong!
"Jong has apparently never read anything else I've written," Taibbi writes. He then goes on to list some of his recent descriptions of male politicians. Rudy Giuliani has "the vestigial stoop of a once-chubby kid who grew up hiding tittie pictures from nuns"; Mike Huckabee "has the roundish, half-deflated physique of an ex-fatty"; former House Judiciary Committee Chairman James Sensenbrenner is "An ever-sweating, fat-fingered beast who wields his gavel in a way that makes you think he might have used one before in some other arena, perhaps to beat prostitutes to death."
Taibbi concludes: "I mean, wow. And I thought I was a hack."
(He also called Jong an "eight hundred year-old sex novelist." Heh.)
