On Politics

OK, so I couldn't resist a quick trip to Andrew Sullivan before I started working on the preschool newsletter.  Mr. Sullivan had a link to conservative commentator George Will's Washington Post column.  I recommend reading the whole thing; it's always good to catch up on the other side, especially when presented by such a considered thinker. If you can't, here's the kicker:

"It is arguable that, because of his inexperience, Obama is not ready for the presidency.  It is arguable that McCain, because of his boiling moralism and bottomless reservoir of certitudes, is not suited to the presidency. Unreadiness can be corrected, although perhaps at great cost, by experience.  Can a dismaying temperament be fixed?"

Robin, I am beginning to see you as a "curator" of essential essays! George Will is a disappearing type of conservative commentator--secular and intellectual--and I had forgotten how insightful his non-baseball pieces can be. Thanks for linking to this one.

OK. THANK YOU! I love the idea of being a curator! You're absolutely spot on about Will. He's so smart and even if I disagree, I feel like I really can and there's a there there that's not just about bickering or name calling.
