I get emails, 64
This time, from Daniel Pritchard, alerting me to a piece by “journalist” Sarah Hill, writing in the Boston Review Blog, “Ted Cruz’s Castro Complex”
Writes an apparently quite self-satisfied Mr Pritchard:
Online today at the Boston Review Blog, journalist Sarah Hill writes of Ted Cruz’s Castro Complex, “the disorder in which a professed hatred of Castro belies a perversely flattering fixation on Castro’s political genius, and in Cruz’s case, a notable imitation of Castro’s flamboyant governance gimmicks.”
As Hill points out, Fidel never made so much as a dent in global capitalism through decades in power. Ted Cruz nearly wrecked it in a matter of weeks.

My reply was dashed off rather quickly, but I think it properly captures the essence of what I’m feeling today about the children who are running our country and who, in a rather surreal irony, have managed to convince themselves that they are the only real adults left. It’s Freaky Friday gone entirely viral.
Dear Mr Pritchard,
This is, as a supposed example of “journalism,” absurd, obscene, and opportunistic. I am not one the editors for your journal, but were I, one of the first things I’d do is make certain that any of my writers attempting to write on capitalism, debt ceiling debates, “default,” or anything relating to a constitutional stance in defense of our liberty and individual sovereignty, first show a passing familiarity with these subjects as they truly exist and not simply rehash demonstrably false talking points fed them by a government to whom they’ve prostituted themselves; and second, I would expect that before one of my writers launched into pseudo-psychiatric speculation of others’ motivations, those writers would first look to themselves and correct any of their own mental deficiencies — as in this particular instance, Ms Hill’s desire to join in the manufactured wilding of an extraordinarily intelligent and honorable man in order to win easy approbation from the herd of dull, predictable, and frankly repugnantly needy lemmings so eager to follow a progressive cult of personality into the very kind of authoritarian state she here projects is brought about by the principled actions of a few actual representatives of the people who are trying to wrest back control of government from a professional ruling class and it’s attendant cronies and media enablers, all of who live like mewling infants clinging desperately to the government tit.
And that’s not to pick solely on Ms Hill. She is just one of many, representing both mainstream political parties, who have taken this route, and who believe that in their mutual consent they will find professional approval and reflect an intellectualism they neither possess nor could ever earn so long as they rely solely for their ideas on their pimps, who have no problem wielding the bitch hand when one of these upppity whores dare steps out of line.
Hope that helps,
