Heeeee's Cheesy!

Posting from a spanking new G4 Powerbook. Nice. Had to brag about that.

So, John Edwards praising Tony Blair as a model statesman. Wrong on so many levels.

There are the superficial parallels with the cheese-meister Kerry has adopted as a running mate. Both are lawyers, and both have young families they trot out before cameras at the slightest opportunity. Both have this slightly religious, slightly sincere demeanor. But to say that Blair has apologised over the WMD thing is going a bit too far - Blair has simply been a little less smug than he was after Hutton.

As a way of embarrassing Blair into remembering that he really shouldn't be making nice with the Republicans it is sort of neat. As "Evil" John E's first stab at this foreign policy business it was fairly well-thought. Providing Bush doesn't manage to get Blair to turn on Edwards (unlikely) it might just work. But, ya know, it's just wrong.

For the record, BTW, Robin and I were little more than acquaintances. But they always say you should blog from experience, and that was my take.

You spend all day reading the NY Press and this blog?

If there's one thing worse than the narcissist it's the fool that notices him.

I wouldn't line a birdcage with the New York Press but I do like that cartoonist. I also read French record collector or Chinese dissident blogs and make witty posts that go "ENGLISH, do you speak it motherfucker?"

I know its regressive but its really fun and I can't help it.
