Thoughts from the morning papers

Whacko-Jacko

Completely incomprehensible. Don't understand the feverish hullabloo at all. The man was a freak. And from all accounts a child molester. God rest his poor soul.

Sarah Palin

One point really ought to be added to the character assassination, uh, discussion of her resignation speech. I know this is wildly speculative and rather rash of me, but perhaps, just perhaps, she meant what she said. Yes, yes, I know. A truth-speaking politician is a difficult concept for the country-club Republican and the Democrat in general (who haven't had one of those since Al Smith died) but you have to admit it's one of the logical possibilities. Barbara, celarent, darii, square of opposition and all that.
