I read Bob Tyrell’s piece this morning on liberalism and the protests in support of public nudity in San Francisco’s restaurants and am reminded of the late David Niven’s quip when a streaker ran onstage during the Academy Award ceremonies in 1974. With his characteristic dry English wit, Niven observed, “Well, ladies and gentlemen, that was almost bound to happen….But isn’t it fascinating to think that probably the only laugh that man will ever get in his life is by stripping off and showing his shortcomings?”
Well, so it is that liberals insist on stripping off and showing their shortcomings. I suppose you could say this is their idea of fleshing things out.
Yet it does leave me with one question. If a man in San Francisco chooses to patronize a restaurant au naturelle where does he keep his wallet?
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?
