After two months of a high-profile, behind-the-scenes tap dance, Kansas City Star columnist Jason Whitlock appears poised to come-out, come-out, wherever he are.
“Kansas City’s Andrew Breitbarts have about 10 hours left in “Lie About Whitlock Month,” he twitterered today around 2 p.m.. “Myth Albom isn’t only King of False Narratives.”
“I think he’s saying that he’s back at midnight,” says one recipient. “That at about midnight tonight his next column will drop or whatever. To me that means he’s going to be back in the Sunday paper.”
In Whitlock’s quest to wax hip, while cashing in on whatever lead to his absence/holdout, he invoked a name not wildly familiar. Andrew Breitbart is a 40-something, Jewish Teaparty conservative commentator with ties to the Drudge Report and Huffington Post. Beirbart posted the controversial video recently of Agriculture Department employee Shirley Sherrod. The video was edited in such a way that it made her appear racist.
Regardless of the posturing, Whitlock clearly is enjoying milking this mini mystery for whatever it’s worth.
