Be careful what you wish for! The doyenne of the Washington villagers who had declared war on the Clintons but not on Bush or Jr.jr wanted her own column. And now that she wrote one everyone knows just what a desperate, attention hungry, ridiculous nitwit she is!

I’m going to discuss a drama unfolding in our family, and I’m discussing it only because others have made it public and messy. It’s a conflict that I hope readers can understand — and avoid in their own lives.

So, this is one of those teaching moments, eh, Sally? Only because “tout Paris” was talking about it. News to Sally: your problems,your family, your family business have been irrelevant to everyone but you for a long, long time! Cloistered in your purchased Grey Gardens you let life pass you by, just like the former occupants.

Gawker correctly captures the moment

Washington Post Exists Primarily as Sally Quinn’s Idle Family Gossip Forum

Sally Quinn has a Washington Post column because she’s married to former WaPo editor Ben Bradlee.

Today: she apologetically explains, at length, the circumstances that led to two of her family members scheduling weddings the same day.

The commenters get it too

some rich woman publicly airing her family’s dirty laundry as if I cared or something.

Makes me think to David Brooks’ recent nostalgic look back at the Waspish Power Elite

One of the things he decries from the good old times when they had a lock on power and influence was that

Third, leadership-class solidarity is weaker. The Protestant Establishment was inbred. On the other hand, those social connections placed informal limits on strife. Personal scandals were hushed up. Now members of the leadership class are engaged in a perpetual state of war. Each side seeks daily advantage in ways that poison the long-term reputations of everybody involved.

See, David, Sally is demolishing your misty eyes look at the good ol’ times. No commoners wage war on the Waspish Bradlee family.

Rather it’s Sally who is so self-absorbed and narcissistic, she thinks she needs to explain to the world the dirt in her waspish family.

Ah, they don’t make stiff upper lips like they used to!

Seems to me, the Quinn of Snob got a bit jealous of the amount of ink Tiger Woods is getting with HIS pointless apology, and wanted to be noticed too!

Sorry, Sally, but nobody cares. Return to your salon with the awful food and mean gossip you serve your guests.

As for me, I’ll experience a lot of Schadenfreude reading the reactions to your little public meltdown

Here’s another comment

Whatever she may have once done, her column now seems to exist as a posh form of occupational therapy.

And it’s seems it’s badly needed too. Weaving baskets is just for commoners….
