Who are you again, anyway?

So this guy I've never heard of wrote something for the SF paper about how he's leaving the left to be a better liberal, or something. I had a bit of trouble figuring out what he meant, but I think he meant he wanted to have a headline about a headline about a guy who's a writer who's not with the left any more. He's not Christopher Hitchens so I don't think it'll get him a lot of money. But anyway, here's the "money quote" from his interview at
Likewise, I’ll be glad to cheer when the Children’s Defense Fun gets around to advocating dedicated parenting as kids’ first and foremost need. Until then, I’ll keep saying to Dr. Laura: You go, girlfriend.
Leaving aside for a moment the question of why paying for kids' vaccinations is forgetting about dedicated parenting, I have a tip for Mr. Thompson. You are an aging white man in a suit. You do not get to say "You go, girlfriend" to anyone at all, ever, much less to a freaked-out nonpsychologist religious fanatic entertainer who makes a living humiliating the suffering of others.

So I'm not going to try to figure out the convoluted reasoning of why you made your big life decision; I'm just going to write you off. You might be better off just getting a red sports car, a weave toupée, and a few blowjobs from your secretary if you want to feel a bit more free.
