Just watched “30 Rock,” in which Alec Baldwin is called before a White House investigator to explain why his company is doing this and that. The investigator-interrogator at a supposedly closed session turns out to be a man Baldwin fired a year earlier, out to get Baldwin.
He leaks Baldwin’s testimony, then threatens to destroy his company. He’s in this position having “wormed” his way into the Obama White House by cozying up to Sasha and Malia. His final move is to force Baldwin to take a bailout, thus making him Baldwin’s boss.
On NBC, no less: funny stuff capitalizing on Obama policy and tactics. And it’s only nine months since The One was inaugurated. Are times changing?
Later: Damn! Just when I was getting my WordPress hit graph neatly settled in the 100 range, Instapundit struck again, sending thousands to this item. Now I have to start over again, trying to bring a little neatness into my life.
Yet later: Oh boy. Then along came Breitbart’s Big Hollywood sending hundreds more. Where will all end?
Meanwhile, I have ordered Glenn Reynolds’s An army of Davids : how markets and technology empower ordinary people to beat big media, big government, and other Goliaths from the OP library.
Then I bought it, at my Abebooks.com store, where I am advised, “Buy all your books used. Help the earth.” Meet my thin budget, they mean. Besides, if everyone took that advice, there would be no new books, and then where would the earth be?
I am beginning to get the idea about that army. It’s marching right through my blog.
