According to Script

Justin Katz

Catching up on some regrettably lapsed blog reading habits, I came across a post by Lane Core that notes a January 2 post by the Anchoress with the following bit of prescience:

What I dread most in this political season is the "genuine" moment - and it is coming, soon, sometime between today and tomorrow, or tomorrow and New Hampshire - when Mrs. Clinton, in her ongoing effort to turn herself into whatever the polls says she must be, cries in public. It's going to be genuinely ghastly.

And on such things does history turn. Too bad modernists killed poetry. A. Pope would have produced a classic.

Oh, Muse! Forgive my tempered state.
What cold decline can't tears make good,
When they, from poll-led candidate,
Still serve to warm the sisterhood.

Howl! -- for Crowley, Reback and Walsh

I saw the worst hacks of my generation destroyed by madness, starving hysterical naked,
dragging themselves through the Hispanic streets at dawn,
vainly crying for one more tax hike to fuel their Marxist delusions

PROVIDENCE -- House Speaker William Murphy said Friday that he's ready to end state pensions for new workers. The unions are already howling.

Good call, Anchoress.

For the record, not all sisters were warmed.
