I strive to write from a balanced, informed and fact-based perspective. I try to maintain an even and reasonable tone. I do not want to come off as being thoughtlessly incendiary -- in other words, a verbal Molotov cocktail tosser.
Take Ann Coulter, for example, there is little amusing, witty, profound or educating in her musings. She writes to provoke pure anger at her targets -- nada mas. What Howard Stern is to shock radio, she is to shock politics. And both get paid well to do such. I want to represent the antithesis of this style.
But sometimes in our modern verbal guerrilla warfare, you have to fight fire with fire. Facing the absurdity that passes for serious political conversation and introspection, sometimes a reasonable tone falls flat.
And with that in mind,
Ms. former Secretary of State and Bush/Cheney apologist, Condoleeza Rice, has some verbal jewels for the GOP party:
Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice says the Republican Party must adapt better to rapidly changing demographics in the United States, saying the GOP sent "mixed messages" in the election campaign on immigration and women's issues.
Ahhh, duh. She goes on.
