The Facts Machine

"And I come back to you now, at the turn of the tide"

James Wolcott, who now has a blog (yes!), skewers those such as the Freepers quoted in the previous post who questioned the timing of . . . Bill Clinton's emergency quadruple bypass operation.
With the transparent, calculating cynicism that marked his two terms in office, Bill Clinton chose to burglarize the majesty of President Bush's Churchillian convention address by conveniently entering the hospital for heart surgery. Unable to yield the spotlight, Clinton clutched his chest like Fred Sanford and called 911 in a desperate bid to deny Bush the "big mo" he was beginning to enjoy after addressing the nation last night from a mound of skulls at Madison Square Garden, each skull beautifully handcrafted by Thai sweatshop workers.
Wow. Congrats, James, you just earned yourself a place on the TFM-roll.

Wolcott's blog found via Tbogg. Oh, and the first chapter of this is 3 laughs per graf, particularly when he gets to describing the leading lights of the punditocracy.
