Poetry Specials — After badly

Poetry Specials — After badly insulting my philosophic, yet poetic, soul, Natalie Solent has made amends, even reprinting one of my good bad poems (I write bad poetry, but it's good bad poetry… I may have once written a bad good poem, but it's hard to tell). Because no one has clamored for more, I'm going to give it to you. Here's another good bad poem over on my Afterthoughts page.

    Does Mr. Wilkinson consider himself a “liberaltarian”? To me, he seems a real, thoroughgoing libertarian. That is, he isn’t merely a sex-and-drugs libertarian in the Reason/Megan McArdle mode, or merely a “hate George Bush but like markets a little better than most liberals” type like Jim Henley, but someone who actually believes in far-ranging human freedom from state coercion. (Which doesn’t mean that I agree with Mr. Wilkinson, since I’m not a libertarian, merely that I recognize his consistency and coherency.)

    Who is this Thomas Friedman person? Everything he says or writes should be completely and totally ignored until he lives in China for 5 years.

    He wants to run his mouth about how great China is yet he won’t back it up and move there. Until he does, he doesn’t exist in my eyes.

    TheFieryScribe :

    “Trust me, there is a race for the Stupidest Man Alive title. He, like Friedman, worked for … anyone? anyone? the NYT and his name is … anyone? anyone? Ben Stein.”

    Add to that Donald Luskin, James Glassman, Kevin Hassett, and of course, Casey ‘Nothing to Worry About’ Mulligan (http://www.nytimes.com/2008/10/10/opinion/10mulligan.html?_r=1&hp&oref=slogin).

    But still, I vote for Mustache Man, on the grounds of his strong record of hammering out multiple stupid columns every single week, year after year, decade after decade.

    Will, I noticed Real Clear Politics linked to your article in the Week! I consider that a big deal. Congratulations!
