76th, 77th, 78th, 79th, 80th & 81st PORTRAITS

Just now on the radio someone said that the Republicans have launched a fuselage of criticism against the Obama administration. So apparently the GOP doesn't have a corner on lexicographicalarian clumsiness. I don't think it's necessary to have the word "fusillade" in your vocabulary. We can't all be pointy-headed intellectuals. But we could sure do with fewer poseurs. I say this in full humility, because I once, as I have no doubt Catherine is poised to remind me, mistook misogynist for misanthrope, a moment which will forever cause me to awaken shaking and sweating in the middle of the night. That, and the image of Sarah Palin with her hand on a Bible being held by Chief Justice Roberts.
