Andrea has a way with words. You may remember her from Tim Blair’s blog a few seasons back, she was his Administratrix. She was GOOD at it, too. Andrea’s most recent essay deals with The Current Occupant and His Band of Weasels in a succinct, take-no-prisoners way. Being Banner-in-Chief at Tim’s was good training, because he’s now with the Daily Telegraph and she’s posting great things on her own.
From Andrea’s most recent post at Spleenville:
It’s also about sounding good is a fine substitute for doing good. The old “deeds not words” way of life is too hard, because you might get your hands dirty and worse you might fail and then look like a fool. Also words are a great way to show off how smart you are and that you’re not a jock. It’s all about high school in the end. Also you can impress your fellow not-jocks with your bravery and toughness without actually doing something disturbingly physical like fighting.
