Jones-ing again. Catching up on the political grapevine, and the fruit is ripe indeed!
Stanley Fish says it plainly, in THE New York Times no less, and I agree–Do You Miss Him Yet? Oh, indeed. It started for me on November 5, 2008, and I am sure it will only get stronger. Signs continue that the Kool-Aid high that elected our current President has indeed worn off; especially as he continues to lie, spin, and misspeak. Yep, me and other Americans are right there with you, Stanley!
Mark Steyn cuts with precision, and dissects the true nature of this Obamacare push: Obamacare worth the price to Democrats. Can’t add anything to Steyn’s brilliance–read the article.
And Karl Rove, another person that the crazies on both sides love to demonize, starts his book launch today: Courage and Consequences: My Life as a Conservative in the Fight. I am always fascinated by personalities that everyone loves to hate, whether it’s the left or the right. I read Hilary Clinton’s book for that reason, though I can’t recommend it. It’s a snoozer and way too much fiction–but it at least gave her a chance to have her say, and I was interested in hearing it from her perspective. I’m sure the critics will be brutal simply because he’s Karl Rove; but I pay little attention to critics. Courage and Consequences will be added to my reading list, along with Going Rogue. Say what you will about Rove’s politics, he’s a smart man and a class act.
