i watched this thing play out on twitter, which reinforced my love of twitter even though i rarely make time for it. not because i love a fight, which part of me does, but because i loved watching a professional "writer" struggle so publicly with words, attempting and failing humiliatingly to delineate herself from doug stanhope - who actually is brilliant with words - in the exact opposite juxtaposition that ended up happening. a drunk can tweet in 140 characters more substance than she can fit into a 8-paragraph composition. i love that.
Recent political reports reminded me that I do not claim allegiance with any political party because I find them all equally - and therefore repugnantly - flexible.
Call me naive but I expect politicians to stick with their own stated platforms. The Lib-Dems were elected in large part on a pledge to reduce or eliminate UK tuition fees. Now they have not only retreated from that promise, they are the critical factor in approving the massive fee increase.
So, basically, Lib-Dems are liars.
Good to know.
