Wednesday Stuff

The Most Predictable Headline of the Week. From a column about Hillary by the slimeball turncoat political consultant Dick Morris, who once happily indulged Bill's worst instincts. Meanwhile, elsewhere in the slimeball subculture, two former Bill Clinton accusers have teamed up to deliver lurid details of their encounters with Slick Willy. Egad.

The Bush Apostate Matrix. A nice visual depiction of presidential critics and how they rate.

'Gut Reaction Conservative.' Toledo native and right-wing funny man P.J. O'Rourke muses about what he coins GRC.

Edifice Complex. Last week, we brought you news about favorite American architecture. Here's an interesting little feature about how despots around the world are feeding their edifice complex.

Don's New Book of Poetry. My friend Mr. Iannone has another collection out, and I'm sure it's as wonderful as his last one. I'm looking forward to reading it soon. Earlier, we've discussed the bard here. Congratulations, Don. A wonderful accomplishment.

i think dick morris provides some interesting comments of how the clintons think since he worked for bill. I think your characterization of "slimeball" is a little over the top. Turncoat depends on your political leaning. I find it somewhat fascinating to get an insiders view of how the corrupt, power hungry clinton machine operates and thinks. Take with a grain of salt, but it it interesting.

My slimeball characterization is based on several things, including the sleazy way he got run out of the political consulting business (caught sucking a hooker's toes in an expensive D.C. hotel, and letting her listen in on his chats with the president), and also because he's now making a living from telling secrets culled from his time advising a former client, which is flatly unethical in any professional line of work. Standup people don't do it, and slimeballs do. End of story.
