Mostly a very good post, but I must say, unless I am misreading, that the Edwards comment seems to be a cheap shot against a cancer patient.

But the other summaries of the "experts" is absolutely spot on!

Nice summary! Jamieson can be hit or miss in my experience, but I haven't heard her recently. Many of the Villagers are just clones of each other, though. Because they all tap into the same conventional wisdom (usually wrong) with only a small spectrum of variance, they all sound pretty much the same. (Also, "Saletan" versus "Saleton.")

Bob, it wasn't intended as a cheap shot against her so much as against the NYT, which only invited her as exploitative titillation. If she hadn't been a famous cuckoldee, and the victim of a guy the Establishment that the NYT represents hates with a passion, they wouldn't have considered it. Perhaps I should have made that point more clearly, tho.

(Also, "Saletan" versus "Saleton.")

Whatever. A compost heap by any other name....

  • "[O]ur time, our energy, should be spent in educating, agitating, organizing our fellow citizens in the workplace, in the neighborhood, in the schools. Our objective should be to build, painstakingly, patiently but energetically, a movement that, when it reaches a certain critical mass, would shake whoever is in the White House, in Congress, into changing national policy on matters of war and social justice."


  • "True religion will not let us fall asleep in the comfort of our freedom. Love thy neighbor is not a piece of advice, it's a command. ...

    God, my friends, is with the poor and God is with us, if we are with them. This is not a burden, this is an adventure."

    Mr. President, we love America, not because of all of us have seen the beauty all the time.

    But we believed if we kept on working, if we kept on marching, if we kept on voting, if we kept on believing, we would make America beautiful for everybody.

A certain 10 percent will ensure its employment anywhere; 20 percent will produce eagerness, 50 percent positive audacity; 100 percent will make it ready to trample on all human laws; 300 percent, and there is not a crime which it will not scruple, nor a risk it will not run, even to the chance of its owner being hanged.''
