It always makes me laugh how often when nitwits link to articles they seem to think backs up their claims the links do exactly the opposite. ‘
Case in point.
So writes Zoë Coombs Marr, a writer, comedian and “theatre maker,” and a woman of profound humility, in a piece complaining about the “devastating effects” of modest alterations in taxpayer subsidy for Australia’s commercially unviable artist
So who does she link?
At this point, rather bafflingly, Ms Marr links to an article – this one here, by Tim Blair – which is part of a series of pieces by Blair and Andrew Bolt on arts funding cronyism and the ludicrous misspending of public money. A series that actually reveals her claim of funding integrity and aesthetic high-mindedness as – how shall I put this? – less than convincing. Not your mates, indeed. (links in original V)
Heh. When a lefty links Tim Blair to back up her assertions, hilarity is sure to follow.
Love this quote
(David Thompson V) Undaunted, or perhaps oblivious, our unhappy artist continues,
“Grant money is pumped back into the economy and employs numerous people. “
Yeah, taking money from producers to give to ‘artists’ who need to be paid for their socially relevant ‘art’ pumps all manner of money into the local economy and employs the employees at liquor and pot distributors, which is something I suppose.
Since I’m going camping this weekend, then on to DC for the week and then back to AZ, this post will probably be here for a long time so I figure I’ll leave something visually teh funny up here.
Via Big Fur Hat (who obviously doesn’t own the world or else his server folks wouldn’t have boned him last week).
