Today's Prelutsky Quote and Another Call for Obama's Resignation
By Alan Caruba
One of my favorite blogger/commentators is Burt Prelutsky. A Hollywood denizen, he is a conservative among crazed liberals. He is also one of the funniest writers around these days, having honed his talent writing for many famed sitcoms. Here's the lead paragraph to his latest post:
"I believe it was Freud who was first got credit for saying he didn’t know what women wanted. Frankly, I don’t think he was half-trying. Quite simply, women want a man who is rich, handsome, sexy, is as interested in fabrics and color as they are, who can get weepy at sunsets, tear up at Judy Garland singing “Over the Rainbow,” and whose favorite movie is “The English Patient.” In short, they’re looking for a very successful interior decorator. I say, good luck to them. But it’s no wonder that so many married women feel they wound up settling."
Another blogger friend is J.D. Longstreet, a nom de plume for a true southern gentleman and fire-breathing conservative. His commentary today calls for President Obama's resignation and quotes from my June 2009 commentary that suggested early in Obama's first term that he was a disaster. I suspect Longstreet and I are going to be joined by many others in the weeks and months ahead.
The Internet has challenged the mainstream media and is contributing to the loss of circulation among newspapers and news magazines. It has transformed the political process. We are fortunate to have talented men and women whose voices now reach millions without being subject to the media gatekeepers.
