The Bayly Brothers and the Huckster

I dont’ have a whole lot of respect for the former Governor of Arkansas. The matter wasn’t helped much when I saw the squishy answer he gave on the submission of wives in the South Carolina debate.  You can see the video here

The entire issue was summed up in a brilliant quote  by Chesterton at the start of the Bayly article.

It is the final sign of imbecility in a people that it calls cats dogs and describes the sun as the moon–and is very particular about the preciseness of these pseudonyms.  To be wrong, and to be carefully wrong, that is the definition of decadence.  The disease called aphasia, in which people begin by saying tea when they mean coffee, commonly ends in their silence. -G. K. Chesterton

I highly recommend the entire article.
