Good Christ.


If I may dust off an old chestnut: ROFL.

It'd be just like the Yanks to fall for Dave. He's a greasy toff - he plays to type. He probably lives in a castle. He's probably all thumbs at physical tasks. He has a very plummy accent.

I'll lay a fiver he drops his aitches to get out of a tight spot.


I worry about Peggy. That column is tripe, in so many ways. I think I'm like you, Ian: I used to love Peggy, and thought her commentary in the campaign was brilliant. But now she's reverted to this unthinking, often inconsistent, received-wisdom-spouting archetype the likes of which we frankly have far too much of already. Most upsettingly, she's ceased to question the lazy assumptions which pervade political media in America. The worst oversimplifications are taken to be solid foundation for argument.

i like what Obama has done with the stimulus packages. i know this is off topic, but i'm back to work now for the first time in 10 months. i'm back in my hard hat, and i think that deserves some praise.

If you ask any person from a foreign country that has never been to the U.S., they will likely agree with this sentiment. Many of those who have traveled here and actively learned about the U.S. would disagree. I think it's easy to be negative on public policy, specifically financial policy.

The situation we are in financially wasn't started in the last 3 years.
