Must reading

Former federal prosecutor Andy McCarthy on the Left’s agenda and the ludicrous charges of a "disproportionate response" on the part of Israel: It’s not international law if you never agreed to it in the first place.

Now I know newspapers are in trouble

The Village Voice has laid off Nat Hentoff. A fantastic writer about jazz* and politics, he’s one of the few Lefty columnists I’ve respected, even when I’ve hotly disagreed with him. Sad

*(In an age of MP3s, when listeners care only about the sound, but not the artist or the context, Hentoff’s liner notes should be required reading. They’re a musical education all by themselves.)


Not a jester, not a fool

December 31, 2008

John Kass tips his hat to Gov. Blagojevich (D-Capone) for outmaneuvering his own party:

Since he was federally charged with trying to sell President-elect Barack Obama‘s Senate seat to the highest bidder, Gov. Rod Blagojevich has been wrongly caricatured as some kind of hapless jester prancing on the edge of madness.

Jesters hold rattles with a likeness of their heads on the end of a stick, and they hop off into a corner, prattling to themselves. That’s what jesters do.

Jesters don’t pick up the race card in a nationally televised news conference and slam it into the face of every Democrat in the U.S. Senate, a palm heel strike to the tip of the nose, leaving all of them watery-eyed, their lips stinging.

To borrow Internet argot, Blago just pwned the federal and state Democrats. Loser

UPDATE: This really calls for a picture, and what could be more fitting than this:

Cagney grapefruit

UPDATE II: Ed Morrissey thinks Blago’s revenge leaves the Democrats facing a catastrophe.
