In the vapid tradition of Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush, Rick Perry is the latest opportunistic Republican to regale the American public with superficial bloviation that is as simplistic as it is just plain wrong.
Perry may or may not believe the silly nonsense he so generously spouts. However, it is tragic that so much stupidity is taken for serious discourse by so many citizens.
More tragic still is that willful ignorance would be considered
advantageous to any political party in these parlous times.

In the pages of the Harvard State University gazette, a notice from a pest:

DeWayne Wickham, columnist for Gannett News Service and a gentleman of color, taps out his last lines as the all-white mobs don their sheets and prepare to descend on the Republic:
For much of his time in the White House, the rap against Barack Obama has been that he is a weak leader—a man who is a much better talker than doer when it comes to managing the nation’s affairs.
Don’t believe it.
This knock against the nation’s first black president stems from his low-key approach to combating Republican opposition to virtually everything he does—and his passive response to the disrespect of GOP members, such as those who called him a liar during a speech on the House floor, who wouldn’t take his call in the middle of the debt-ceiling crisis, and who referred to him as a “boy” and his policy as a “tar baby.”
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?
