If you don't know about James Lileks and his Daily Bleat
, you're missing out. His sarcasm is biting, but good naturedly so. The guy writes very very well, and invariably starts out by endearing me to him and his family and then midway through goes on to say simply and eloquently what I often think. And he says it better than I ever could:
But maybe - just maybe - many people did not want the country to be united if it meant being united behind Bush. He is a much more potent and immediate threat, after all. Who’s heard from Osama lately? Meanwhile Bush is out there every day handling snakes and speaking in tongues and supergluing parapalegics to wheelchairs, because his weird-beard God loves suffering and commands him – via text-messaging, for all we know – to kill them oily rag-heads. I mean, today I was behind a car whose bumpersticker had a picture of Bush with the slogan "American Terrorist." I know that driver was so behind Bush before he failed - in a fundamental way - to convince the driver he was not equivalent to Abu Nidal. Probably because he misprounced "Nuclear." Farking moron.
It was hard to pick just one little block to showcase here, so go read the whole thing. Then go back every day for more, like I do.
