Don’t kid yourself. We are heading into oblivion.
(Page 3 of 3)
I could not sleep until about five in the morning. I am still having nightmares from that woman on the plane.
The next day, off to IAD for my flight back to LAX. It’s a great United Airlines 777, with comfortable seats and fine service. The food is so bad, though, it’s almost as if they were trying to poison us. I know that if the management of United Airlines knew what they were serving people in three-class first, they would do something about it. If only Stalin knew!
Now, it’s three days since I got back and I still don’t feel very well. But there is a silver lining here. I sleep most of the day with my new lover dog, Julie. I am happy. I hold her paw and go into dreamland. We are very happy together as the nation heads into oblivion. Occasionally I get up and read a few pages of The Great Gatsby, a work of unique genius, or else I watch a few minutes of a super-upsetting movie called Downfall about the last days of Hitler. Creepy. But the acting and lighting and the whole production is spectacular. As I said, disturbing, but spectacular. The man who plays Speer may be the best supporting actor I have ever seen. The man who plays Hitler is also great. So is the woman who plays Eva Braun. When Hitler orders her brother shot (or is it her cousin), she argues with him, then says with a smile, “Du bist der Führer.”
On the way home from the doctor today, though, on the radio news, I heard President Obama dropping the “g” sound at the end of his sentences the way he does when he thinks he’s addressing working people. When he thinks he’s addressing business people, he keeps in the “g” sound. That’s politics. He could be a lot worse.
Just so you know, we don’t have anyone who can beat him. Get used to him.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
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?
