As I confine myself to The American Spectator and National Review Online, I rarely step in the messes on the Internet sidewalk deposited by the Leftist Loonies. Patrick Hynes’s quoting of one (“Dry Drunk”), in his “Black Hat” piece, made me think again how vastly preferable it is to have a former drinker, who changed his ways before his ways changed him, to any one of the Democrat psychotics looking for a place to break — Dean, Gore, or Kerry. Puts me in mind of a rebuttal I heard/read once “I’d rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.” A frontal lobotomy for any of that trio would only be a step up. What Freud could not do with the Gore’s choice or real estate post-election defeat! Found themselves an architectural replica of the White House back in Tennessee.
During the campaign Susan Estrich (her man was Howard Dean) tried to make an issue of Bush’s past drinking and what she claimed was Cheney’s current imbibing. It didn’t work. I notice to console herself she has put a new face on things. Hers, to be specific. The past two elections must have been aging.p>Sorry I can’t attribute the quip. Could be anyone from W. C. Fields to Robert Benchley to Hunter Thompson. (Although I doubt it was the last — unless it was pill bottles, too.) I read a lot. br> — Diane Smith br> South San Francisco, California /p>

Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
