P.J. to the rescue…

11 Nov

This is the most honest and best articulation of the GOP defeat I have read…

…no surprise it’s from P.J. O’Rourke.

Money quote ::

Our impeachment of President Clinton was another example of placing the wrong political emphasis on personal matters. We impeached Clinton for lying to the government. To our surprise the electorate gave us cold comfort. Lying to the government: It’s called April 15th. And we accused Clinton of lying about sex, which all men spend their lives doing, starting at 15 bragging about things we haven’t done yet, then on to fibbing about things we are doing, and winding up with prevarications about things we no longer can do.

etc. etc. It’s all brilliant.

Pure class. If conservatism were indeed such, I’d call myself a conservative.

    Brilliant; thanks for the signpost. Poor old “I’m missing a few pieces of this puzzle myself” PJ – perhaps he’s at last getting a glimpse of the complexity of a world he’s always thought was so simple…
