How do I know Clark fits this description? Because of his ad hoc hating on Occupy protesters, anti-corporate sentiments, after-hours parties, bicyclists and graffiti. Lemme cite a few of his bon mots from the current print issue. (Unless you find a hard copy, this is your only chance to read them. Like most old farts, Clark does not seem to be overly web-savvy.)
Best way to tell the world you're unqualified for any job aside from shitter scubber in a Greyhound station: You spend months sitting on your ass in Woodruff Park.
Weakest weakling: Mayor Kasim Reed, whose procrastinated half-assed response to the moronic mob in Woodruff Park revealed him unfit to lead. Whether because he's a liberal and identified with many of the positions of the demonstrators or is just a middling ignoramus, he let the situation drag on, only making it more of an embarrassing, debilitating, costly spectacle.
The "Do you actually think you are smart, you piece of communist shit?" award: To the ignorant, unwashed and underfed Georgia Slim of I Want Whiskey, for spouting opinions that, if followed, would put him in the field cutting sugar cane. Corporations are the only reason you aren't running naked through the jungle.
Biggest scam: Atlanta nightclubs that stay open past midnight on Sunday simply by calling it a "private party." Either play by the same rules as everyone else or close up completely.
Best way to give back: Graffiti the fuck out of Creative Loafing's new offices and see if their writers still applaud it as "art" instead of vandalism.
Best idea whose time has come: Ticket the fuck out of bicyclists when they run red lights and stop signs. Or just make it legal to run them over. Whichever…
And, in case we couldn't quite figure out how he feels about the Occupy crowd:
Best way to know you're retarded: You spend months sitting on your ass in Woodruff Park.
Now, as cantankerously conservative as Clark sounds, he is fuckin' Keith Olbermann compared to Stomp and Stammer's longtime film critic David T. Lindsay — astonishingly, yet another CL alum. Here's a passage from this week's review of Young Adult, in which he describes Charlize Theron's character, the deliciously nasty, narcissistic Mavis Gary:
Everything that we see Mavis criticized for — her excessive drinking, her inability to see the sanctity of Buddy's marriage, her condescending arrogance and elite sarcasm — is a product of liberalism. … Liberalism doesn't work. It's slow rot towards cowardice.
"Let the Wingnut Circular Firing Squad fun begin!"
She's only awful in your myopic minds. She should be Guvnor now instead of the…
WTF does Benghazi and IRS have to do with city gummint?
But I'll hang…
I miss Billy McKinney and his switchblade.
Shut up and go home to Plains already.
What an asshole!
