I’M BACK. Regular blogging will resume later. In the meantime, Eugene Volokh is once again posting a devastating critique of Slate’s “Bushism of the Day” that’s a must-read. The Bushism feature, along with the new but equally lame Kerryism feature, seems to wind up making Slate look foolish far more often than its subjects. And Eugene is right to slam them for not providing links to the original statements they make fun of.
UPDATE: More on the Bushism here. “That anyone would look to mine this moment for the sake of making it seem other than it was is despicable.”
Or at least unforgivably tacky. And, also, not funny.
