Reflections of a working writer and reader
The worst tragedy for a poet is to be admired through being misunderstood.

Great. Like these two are going to rule the world?
I think it’s just a picture of a happy couple. That’s what it looks like to me.
Happy Holidays, John. I thought I’d share with you a little blurb from a paper I’ve written for in the past — couldn’t resist commenting on this before it went off the front page. This is from:
The BEAST 50 Most Loathsome People in America, 2007
17. Hillary Clinton
Charges: Began in politics as a teenage Nixon supporter — that’s twisted. Moved on to corporate law, representing Wal-Mart and bravely defending Coca-Cola from disabled employees. Married out of ambition. Failed miserably as the first lady of health care. Has spent whole of senatorial career as a hawk and a panderer. Would have no shot at becoming president if she didn’t just happen to be married to one already.
Exhibit A: Has deftly avoided the flip-flopper label — by never, ever answering a question directly or committing to a position in the first place.
Sentence: Victim of vast right wing conspiracy to shove a brick up her ass.
jb says: Hi Shawn. I never heard of the majority of these guys. But that’s probably a good thing, eh? I heard that Hillary was a lost cause already, that Obama was gonna leave her far behind in the field. And then on the day itself Obama was gonna be left far behind himself while Giuliani took the crown. You see how bad things can get? A few years from now we could be saying, come back, Georgie, all is forgiven . . .
Have a good holiday.
