Time magazine’s Steve Waterson smacks Germaine Greer upside the head over her Steve Irwin outburst:

Greer is disgusted by a vulgar fellow like Irwin, just as she has previously been disgusted by Australia’s vulgar choice of prime minister, its lack of culture, its shameful history and so much else Australian that doesn’t meet the standards of her refined intellect (how she must have agonized before accepting the invitation to appear on Celebrity Big Brother). Let’s pay tribute to that intellect by employing her rhetorical device of invented quote and response. I imagine her yelling: “I am a loathsome creature who lacks human feeling and has so completely lost touch with Australia that I vow to be silent on its affairs.” Yes Germaine, that’s a great idea. And start today, will you, for God’s sake.

Greer left Australia for England; Waterson left England for Australia. Waterson wins. Read the whole thing.
