Robin Givhan of the Washington Post writes pointless, nasty columns, yet somehow she was awarded the Pulitzer Prize.

Givhan's latest venture into meaningless blather is a rambling piece on Jenna Bush, politicians' children, and celebrity, which includes confounding gems such as this:

"The White House turned it into an American wedding. And while no one expects to be pleased with all of the couple's choices, everyone will think they have a right to be heard."

Does that even mean anything? The rest of the article's not any better; it's barely intelligible.

And this kind of writing rates a Post paycheck and a Pulitzer?

I agree with you. She's often funny in that unpleasant way I either don't get (most of the time) or just don't like. Why she's such a success is beyond me.

Hope you're having a great weekend.

Givhan might be the Don Imus of the WA Post...unintelligible, and an unaccountable success.

Best wishes,

Good point. So what will she do to get herself fired, do you suppose?

We can only hope...I figure eventually karma catches up with someone who's been that unnecessarily unkind.
