'A person can be even evil but still retain the sense of honor but here ( in the West,- MS) we have a lot of honest people doing dishonorable things just from the goodness of their hearts.'
It is really odd that Dostoevsky is the favorite writer of Laura Bush. At least that's what she claimed.
6. Many of my fellow --progressives write long and boring diatribes about why they will have to vote for Obama despite his vices, etc. Long, long, long,looooong self-explanations; even Prince Hamlet would fall asleep.
The ones who will vote for Romney do not seem to be in such self- doubt. It seems odd.
7. Recently Mr. Romney said at some special dinner that he did not care for about 0.5 of the US population. The media on both sides howled with pleasure and discussed that in detail, much more than Hurricane Sandy. One little caveat: there was absolutely no discussion (in the open, I mean) on who were those people Mitt gave his oath to at that dinner and why did he have to do that. None of those people were interviewed and none were even mentioned on TV (Mother Jones published the names but that was all). That was scarcely odd because our media eats sh*t on a regular basis.
8. The debates this year were so substance- less that substance was not even discussed. The two guys should not talk at all: they instead should use only gestures like it was done at some debates in Middle Ages. That was odd that what we saw was still called 'debates'.
9.Show me the money! Our GOP folks claim that private charity is much more efficient than any government service. I don't notice a pile of gold delivered to the victims of Sandy from the generous private donors. Do you? Odd.
10. Most of our young people consider Comedy Central a real news cast. That's scarcely odd because 'in the land of the blind the one- eyed person is a King'.
I would like to end my little dance macabre with another verse from the genius Lewis Carroll.
'The Lion and the Unicorn were fighting for the crown:
The Lion beat the Unicorn all round the town.
Some gave them white bread, some gave them brown:
Some gave them plum-cake and drummed them out of town.'
How relevant! And how odd.
