I Like It

I just heard about this site by James Wolcott, and this is the first post I saw:

The allusion in "Tweet Smell of Success" to "Reichian" refers not to Robert Reich, former Secretary of Labor, but Wilhelm Reich, renegade psychotherapist and founder of the Orgone Institute, who in his 1948 book Listlen, Little Man! addressed the reader:

"You let the powerful demand power 'for the little man.' But you yourself are silent. You provide powerful men with more power or choose weak, malignant men to represent you. And you discover too late you are always the dupe."

Not a bad description of Bush's "base."

And this line in the second:

But that was before John Kerry grape-stomped Bush into a sullen mash.

A lovely mental picture, no?

That blog deserves a closer look. See ya.
