Your Say

Three examples of people who cannot say "I f*&ked up, I bought the snake oil and convinced others to do so. I am sorry."

Morgan - return to reciting other people's words.
Tom - return to treating non-sequitors as profundities.
E.J. - return to whatever it is you get paid for; it's cat-sitting, right?

They're diehards in the last ditch. They have no options save one, to be carried out on their shields.

Reminds me of the old Carnac routine: "Name a black, a hack, and a flack."

You may have not seen this:
Professor Althouse now claims that becasue McCain was not conservative enough, she took a principled stand to vote for Voldemort instead:


"I don't know if I'm the typical moderate, but I am a moderate, and I specifically had a problem with McCain's lack of conservatism. This was written on October 8, 2008, the morning after a debate, the day I abandoned my "cruel neutrality" perspective on the election and decided to vote against McCain
. . .
In the end, summing up my 4 reasons for rejecting McCain, I said "He never defined himself as a principled conservative."

YGBSM. Talk about doing a cartwheel in a short dress. . .

Take good care,

Althouse, McCardle, Brooks, Chris Buckley, etc., have all cursed themselves by branding an implied asterisk right smack in the middle of their forhead so that no matter how right and profound they may be in some of their pronouncements, they shall always be suspect -- forever.

Buckley especially. He was completely snookered by Barry, heaping praise upon his ghostwriter Ayers' literary talents, etc. After IowaHawk was finished skewering him, Buckley will never be able to return to the conservative milieu. And don't forget Noonan.

None of them will ever apologize or admit they were complicit in their own bamboozlement. But the rest of us know.
