July 11th, 2010 7:33 PM
Washington Post Magazine humorist Gene Weingarten reacted badly in his Sunday column to the discovery that folk singer Arlo Guthrie is now a registered Republican: “By becoming a Republican, Arlo Guthrie has shredded the last remnants of my faith that our hippie principles had any lasting meaning.

WaPo's Weingarten Laments Journalists Don't Present Tea Party as 'A Po

May 23rd, 2010 12:58 PM
Washington Post humorist Gene Weingarten is working in his hatred for conservatives in his Sunday Post Magazine column.

Then he veered into this digression: This sort…

Cambodian Mass Murderer, Dick Cheney -- Morally Equivalent

January 23rd, 2008 5:50 PM
After discussing on the Washington Post website how he’s an atheist who’s enjoyed recreational drugs and who giggles at calling hemorrhoids "asteroids," Washington Post Magazine editor Gene Weingarten truly offers too much of a peek into his soul. He suggests murderous Cambodian tyrant Pol Pot and Vice President Cheney are somehow morally equivalent. Weingarten also writes a humor column in the…
