David Frum’s pride
Anyone who thought that David Frum might have been embarrassed and humiliated by the fact that the cover photo for his cover article in Newsweek last month was a hyper closeup of Rush Limbaugh that portrayed him as your stereotypical angry, pig-eyed, McCarthy-like, right-wing bigot with a black box across his mouth saying “ENOUGH!”, should take a look at Frum’s website, The New Majority. It features the disgraceful Newsweek cover on its main page.

When I saw Frum’s new website for the first time, what came to my mind was: New Democratic Party (NDP). That is the social democratic party of Canada, whose main color is orange. The NDP is even more to the left than the Liberal Party.LA replies:
Yes, I know. I don’t know how he can follow the leader, Jack Layton, who has no charisma or even that much smarts, in my opinion.LA replies:
A Canadian politician with charisma? It’s impossible. Not when a politician’s every moment is bureaucratically controlled by the need to say everything he says in two languages.Kidist replies:
Yes, I realized this finally when the Stephen Harper, the Conservative Prime Minister, on one of his first visits out of Canada (it was to the U.S.), fell right into the two-language mode. He started in French. What was so surprising was that it looked like some kind of combative attempt at saying, “We are different.” President Bush had a bemused, puzzled look on his face the whole time.
