former teen idol Leif Garrett comments on those who, like the UK Daily Mail’s Edward Heathcote Amory, have, thanks to David Freddoso’s book, “lost faith in Obama”
Garrett: “Well, this is going to be off topic by necessity, since I have no idea who David Freddoso is, but I will say this: guys with names like Edward Heathcote Amory almost always pay extra to be gagged with an argyle stocking and spanked vigorously with a shoe. Which, from an economic standpoint, can mean the difference between black tar heroin and a Big Gulp, and black tar heroin, a Big Gulp, and two hot dogs with the works.
“Don’t ask me why about the argyle, though. A friend of mine thinks it has to do with white Anglo guilt over the Scots — he even trots out a few bits from Foucault about power and discipline to make the case — but for me, it’s all about the pump cheese and chili, bra’.
“Guess that makes me what we realists like to call a pragmatist.”*
