Zsa Zsa blog alert!

Arianna Huffington describes her operative philosophy

Zsa Zsa launched her big blog extravaganza today. And yes, it's the expected snoozefest unless you've got a powerful passion for the spicy one's ego trips and her cast of whingeing pals. Even the "Drudge style" headlines are lame. I wonder who financed this boat anchor?

Best comment so far is from Michelle Malkin:
Pssst, did you hear? Arianna Huffington's new celebrity/grass-roots/pundit elite/progressive/whatever blog launches today. I'm informing you because, as the Huffers tell us, those evil, corporatist media meanies don't allow enough little voices to be heard. As Hollywood moonbat-turned-Huffington blogger Laurie David crowed: "The Huffington Post is going to balance the power out there that the media has had forever."

Hmmm. Now, where did I read David's statement? Oh, yeah, in the forever right-wing-controlled Washington Post. Which devoted its Style front-page to The Huffington Post and covered it ad nauseam.
Ah, it's the ole Err America gambit - if you get enough big media suckups to boost it, an audience might show up. Lotsa luck with that. Zzzzzzz's for Zsa Zsa.

UPDATE: (Via Drudge) Nikki Finke has the inside scoop on the blowsy bimbo's blovatron. My choice for best graf:
Forgive them, these bleating blowhards on Arianna's blog, because they know not what they do. Not Seinfeld has-been Julia Louis-Dreyfus and her untalented TV-hyphenate husband, Brad Hall, making unfunny shtick of the anti-gay-marriage movement. Not has-been director Mike Nichols, using the forum to parade his high school grasp of U.S. history by mentioning "de Tocqueville" and "Dr. King" in the same paragraph. Not has-been brat-packer John Cusack, penning the 459,308th remembrance of Hunter Thompson for the sole purpose of letting the world know that the actor scored an invite to the writer's intimate memorial service. Still, the celebs aren't to blame here, because they made the bad mistake of allowing Arianna to sweet-talk them into believing that they had something to say in the first place. ("I was very moved, for example, by what Mike Nichols sent," Huffington told Newsweek. "It was just such a beautiful expression of his thinking." Arianna must have been swooning over the fact that Nichols is married to Diane Sawyer, because it can't possibly be over the director's bombastic blog b.s.)
