I like reading O’Rourke. I think he’s an unmitigated ass, but unlike a bunch of other unmitigated asses, he’s actually funny. He’d be great fun at a dinner party. Plus, P.J. has that knack for dispensing thoughts in just amazingly quotable form, so when you do agree with him you get great material.
Well, I am here to advocate for unfairness. I’ve got a 10-year-old at home. She’s always saying, “That’s not fair.” When she says this, I say, “Honey, you’re cute. That’s not fair. Your family is pretty well off. That’s not fair. You were born in America. That’s not fair. Darling, you had better pray to God that things don’t start getting fair for you.”
Ain’t that the truth.
