Why do I keep blogging when I get only a few thousand lousy visits a day? You never know: somebody could kill Glenn Reynolds.

  3. good news for you spqr, you have an outside chance to move up one space and become assistant devil’s advocate in the new regime. i’m not being ghoulish about this, just referencing historical precedent, bad things have happened in america to political correspondents since before thomas paine, remember “i regret that i have but one wife to give for my country”?

  4. Well, the other thing she could have mentioned is the 1968 Democratic Convention in Chicago. Maybe she will yet.

  5. Or, “What miserable drones and traitors have I nurtured and promoted in my household who let their lord be treated with such shameful contempt by a low-born cleric!”

  6. Well, one thing we don’t have to worry about:
    They demolished the Ambassador.
    But, don’t turn your back to that women, it’s not safe.

  8. Heh. Ha!
    The best take on this I have seen anywhere so far. It encapsulates the tastelessness of the whole thing without being strident.
    Oh yeah, and frickin’ hilarious….

    And maybe now you guys will believe me when I call her a Stalinist.

    I’ve always thought she rather looked like him as well.

    I mean, if she stopped plucking her eyebrows and let her moustache grow.

  11. hillary’s self-revelatory remark put me in mind of this politically incorrect 1932 collaboration between betty boop and louis armstrong (yes, that louis armstrong). hillary comes off more like natasha badenov.

    commenter #8, as long as i get to be the new patterico, you’re welcome to replace spqr with an inflatable sheep.

    i got a 3 a.m. phone call from sirhan sirhan; when i told him that only 2500-3000 people stood between me and the office of governor of oregon, he asked if i could get all of them to meet in one place.

  12. If nominated, I will not run. If elected, I will not serve.

  13. I blog because I have an enormous ego.

  14. You never know: somebody could kill Glenn Reynolds.

    Or Charles Johnson.

  15. Glenn is in Tenessee, Charles Johnson is a little to close to home!
