"The world is not a lodging-house at Brighton, which we are to leave because it is miserable. It is the fortress of our family, with the flag flying on the turret, and the more miserable it is the less we should leave it."
-G. K. Chesterton, Orthodoxy
This here blog is a glimpse or two or three at the condition of the 'fortress of our family' through the eyes Timothy Goddard, a Christian writer with an unhealthy interest in politics living in the Puget Sound area.
Decision 2004: Bush vs. Barry The 2004 election is beginning to firm up, as President Bush's main opposition has emerged. Dave Barry has announced his candidacy. It will be a tough race, but I think Bush will pull it out. Yes, there's theoretically another party involved, but Dave has that covered.
''But Dave,'' you are saying, ''what about the Democrats?''
Excuse me for laughing until I drool on your shoes, but have you seen the Democrats? There are something like 375 of them running, including somebody named ''Dennis.'' Like we would ever elect a president named ''Dennis.''
It's penetrating political analysis like this, phrased so as to be hilarious, that makes me predict that Dave Barry will one day be the governor of Florida.
