George Will, Washington Post,  October 5: Presidents often come to be characterized by particular adjectives: “honest” Abe Lincoln, “Grover the Good” Cleveland, “energetic” Theodore Roosevelt, “idealistic” Woodrow Wilson, “Silent Cal” Coolidge, “confident” FDR, “likable” Ike Eisenhower.

Welcome, one and all to the most intense nightly read anywhere on the ‘sphere…The BitsBlog Nightly Ramble Not Responsible: I note George Will getting it wrong, again. I’m no political fan of Ahhnold, but to lay the blame for California’s problems on his Gucci loafers, as Will does here,  is to miscast California’s problems, and […]

Ya know, I can’t help thinking on Billy Beck as I read Mark Levin this morning: I’ve been thinking this for a while so I might as well air it here. I honestly never thought we’d see such a thing in our country – not yet anyway – but I sense what’s occurring in this […]
