“I Was a Democrat Once”

Shorter David Brooks:

I used to have a magic green jacket that turned me into a Democrat but then they got too Democraticky with all those taxes on rich people so I took off the jacket  and now I’m not but I like to pretend I am and I’m worried that after all their good work being loyal Bushistas, they’re threatening to turn into Democrats again and that makes me sad.

The end.

The Last Word on O’Reilly

From James Walcott:

It is a persistent burr under Bill’s Hopalong Cassidy saddle that he’s never received the honors and awards and esteem accorded a Bill Moyers or the late Walter Cronkite or even a Dan Rather, and you know what, Bill? You never will, because you’re annoying, you’re a grandstanding belligerent, and nobody likes you.

Not even your mother.
