She’s on her way. Mock while you can.

  1. 'Mock while you can…'

    The idea being that at some point in the not too distant future it will be…forbidden?

    Or that the office confers dignity upon ANY and EVERY incumbent?

    I don't know about you, David, but I don't consider B.O. any the less of a flake and I didn't consider G.W. any the less of a mook simply because they'd attained the presidency…

    I see no reason looming on the horizon to desist from the habit of a lifetime….

    No, didn't mean that! I simply believe that Palin is shaking the establishment and naturally she is stereotyped as "stupid". All GOP candidates that succeed are "stupid". Reagan was derided for being stupid, so was Bush 41 and Bush 43. It is an attack line that makes some feel clever whilst flagging up their stupidity.

  3. Alexander,

    The idea being that at some point in the not too distant future it will be…forbidden?

    Redundant, perhaps?

  4. Didn't really think you did, David. Just slightly mocking the idea of 'un coup de the.'

    Stupidity – and meanness, etc. – is not the monopoly of either party. Nor is energy and achievement.

    I've said here before that the two great presidents of my lifetime – I'm 52 – are L.B.J. and Nixon.

    Everyone since, as far as I'm concerned falls into the category of Mook or Flake.

    Failing the emergence of an Abe Lincoln or Franklin Delano Roosevelt, what I wouldn't give, at this point in history, for even an energetic crook to shake the frame of things.

    And the more foul-mouthed and thirsty the better 's my view on the subject.

  5. Frank,

    As so frequently, and so many subjects, the question becomes: who got it right? Huxley or Orwell?
