Look, I've Got Presents To Wrap

• And Why Are There Nuts in my Nut Log? "Why I'm For Paul," by John Derbyshire.

• Oh, So He's the Guy. Robert Novak, Washington Post: "When Mike Huckabee went to Houston on Tuesday to raise funds for his fast-rising, money-starved presidential candidacy, a luncheon for the ordained Baptist minister was arranged by evangelical Christians. On hand was Judge Paul Pressler, a hero to Southern Baptist Convention reformers. But he was a nonpaying guest who supports Fred Thompson for president."

• But Isn't That His Campaign Slogan? Raymond Hernandez and Christopher Drew, New York Times: "Obama's Vote in Illinois Was Often Just 'Present.' "

• So Is A Slime Trail, If You're A Snail. Michael Ledeen, NRO: "This is a Continued Sign of Progress."

• It's Like A Guy Who Makes His Living Selling Horse's Hooves and Pig Rectums Wishing They'd Ban Hot Dogs. Jonah Goldberg: "The most enjoyable aspect of watching the HMS Hillary take on water is the prospect that Bill — and his cult of personality — will go down with the ship, too."

Jonah Goldberg: "The most enjoyable aspect of watching the HMS Hillary take on water is the prospect that Bill — and his cult of personality — will go down with the ship, too."

We still hates the Clenis! Hates it, we do!

Bill is a powerful man indeed, if his success actually causes cognitive dissonance in the Hieronymus Bosch painting that is Jonah's mind.

Slightly off topic, but littlepig started it with the Goldberg quote. Did you ever read Brad DeLong's post on Jonah called "The Stupidest Man Alive"? It's classic. The blog, Sadly No, is also reviewing Jonah's latest scratchings. (I hesitate to call it a book.)

Cheers.
