It's All Graydon Carter's Fault

Almost a week has passed, but like most good people, I'm still outraged. And shocked! I still can't believe such a thing could happen.

I mean, how could you, Miley Cyrus?

Shame on you for using your underage sexuality to boost your profile and popularity with an older audience. And shame on you Annie Leibowitz for taking advantage a young pop star like that. And shame on you too Vanity Fair for exploiting a young girl just to sell magazines. How could you allow your normally classy magazine to be defiled like that?

I know I speak for all of us when I say we do not want to see such filth. We decent Americans value and respect our young people. We treasure their innocence. We don't view young women as sexual objects, but instead respect women of all ages for their intelligence and character.

So shame on all the parties involved in this sordid incident. It's all their fault.
