I’ve been reading P.J. O’Rourke since before he was writing about politics — or at least before I knew he was, as I read my dad’s old National Lampoons. P.J. has a new book out, and the folks at RightNetwork are running excerpts from it at their site. While I particularly like this one:
We all praise the virtue of sharing, but perform the following thought experiment about the sharing process. Imagine that your family is matched, by lot, with five other families and that the resulting half dozen familial units must pool their resources and come to mutual decisions about how those resources are to be allocated. For a brief moment that sounds like an intriguing combination of reality TV and the 1960s. Then we recall what an awful combination reality TV and the 1960s would have been. The Real Housewives of Charlie Manson.
, there’s lots of other funny to be found as well. Read it, and the other excerpt at the site, and feel sorry for the Left. They had to settle for Stewart, Colbert and Franken. We’ve got O’Rourke.
