One thought on “P. J. O’Rourke Hits the Mark

  1. qb,

    Agreed, it is a screed. He’s right. Some A students write restaurant reviews, but some C students instead of opening up restaurants also morph into Rush and Beck. Some of my best friends are insuffrable, elitist liberal prigs. And some of my best friends are fearful, angry, pucker-bottomed, libertarian and conservative ideologues.

    Here is a piece you and I might agree upon:

    You and I have much more in common than where we differ. Both political parties have run up debt because it is politically easier to suck up to their constituencies than to educate the public. Less government or more is not the problem. Wisdom is.

    Alas, where is H. L. Mencken when we need him. Consider this epigram from the crackerbarrel nihilist: “Every decent man is ashamed of the government he lives under.”

    What a country!
