Roeser is a smart, knowledgeable conservative columnist, but, sadly, his work has taken a very dark turn in recent years. Creepy racial references pepper commentary that is dominated by an almost shocking level of vicious, unrelenting contempt for his opponents. But, sometimes Roeser's fury is so overwrought that, instead of shocking me, he just cracks me up.
From Roeser's most recent rant directed at Chicago Tribune publisher Sam Zell and the Trib editorial board:
You’d think the “Tribune” would try…out of desperation, anyhow…to be something different. But no: its liberal board of directors, its know nothing little Lucifer motorcyclist owner [Zell], its viscerally left-leaning editorial board are rooted in liberal cliché-dom.
Now, I was taught that Lucifer is anything but a know-nothing. A bumbling, inept Satan wouldn't pose much of a threat to the salvation of humankind. If the Prince of Darkness owned a news empire, I'm quite sure it would be as big and as successful as anything owned by Rupert Murdoch.
