Ode to Erica Payne, Robert Gibbs and Paul Krugman:
When you’re feeling sad & blue
And have no clue what to do
Sit down and have a cup of tea
And a hug or two or maybe three.
Feel those troubles melt away
And start you on a better day.
- Bill Kristol, would-be Conservative Poet Laureate
Heh. Do read Bill Kristol's take on the current state of the left - Collapse. He sees the left as having collapsed on every meaningful level, including public support. He notes their intellectual bankruptcy, the loss of their "Lenist discipline," the collapse of their "democratic legitimacy," and the disappearance of the left's "good humor."
All of this has Mr. Kristol in a state of giddiness about on par with that experienced by Ebenezer Scrooge when he awoke from his night of ghostly visitations still alive and with a new outlook on life. It is a fun read.
