"Evil Is As Evil Does"; or, "Blood on the Altar of Denial" 

On the CNN news information website, Ted Nugent, representing one side of the current controversy, expresses his opinion:

Anybody see what the evil Brady Campaign and other anti-gun cults have created? I personally have zero tolerance for evil and denial. And America had best wake up real fast that the brain-dead celebration of unarmed helplessness will get you killed every time, and I've about had enough of it.

Debbie Schlussel: Woman 

Let it be here recorded that Debbie Schlussel, a child of God, will have come into this world via parents who procreated her, walked around on the earth, did some things and said some things, and then passed away from it. Let it be here known.

And also, speakingcorpse, as you know, and as has been pointed out many times: John McCain is Crazier than a Shithouse Rat.

It is tragic, but sometimes when they put you in a cage for five years and then let you out, you're not alright afterward.

Lewis Lapham, reflecting on the passing of Arthur Schlesinger in this month's Harper's, brings back a very apt epigram:

...I notice that the reading of history instills a sense of humor and makes
possible the revolt against what G.K. Chesterton once called the "small and
arrogant oligarchy of those who merely happen to be walking about."

The Chesterton quote perfectly the sums up the Imus thing--not the "controversy" but the condition. Having an image of your face on the tee vee is the new walking about.

Lapham also writes eloquently of the "attitude of mind formed in the floating world of timeless fantasy, impatient and easily bored, less at ease with a stable story line than with the flow of brand-name images in which nothing necessarily follows from anything else."
