surprising myself

As the candidate most likely to aver that the stars really are “God’s daisy chain” Mike Huckabee is already the Madeleine Bassett of the not-yet-officially-existing Republican Presidential campaign. That’s enough reason to wish him ill.

Of late I’ve been surprised by how much I’ve enjoyed reading Alex Massie in the Spectator. I don’t agree with him a lot of the time, but I’m always engaged – and yes, as much by the Wodehouse, Le Carre, rugby and cricket references as by the general argument.
