    Or the Travelling Wilburys’ “Tweeter and the Monkey Man”
    “Jan said to the Monkey Man, ’I’m not fooled by Tweeter’s curl
    I knew him long before he ever became a Jersey Girl;.’”

    Of course, Teddy Roosevelt was a Republican until he lost the Republican nomination to Taft and then ran as a progressive in the general election. Talk about sore losers.

    When Reagan appointed Sandra Day O’Connor to the Supreme Court, Jerry Falwell said that all good Christians needed to be concerned. Barry responded by saying what he thought good Christians should do to Jerry.

    My favorite part was Jerry Falwell, Jr. talking about his daddy. I thought of Barry Goldwater’s sage advice. “Every good Christian should line up to kick Jerry Falwell’s (whatever).”

    I am reasonably sure that Carmen and her creator already have tickets for the Cruz Express.

    As Bob Dylan once noted, one way or the other, “everybody must get stoned.”*

    I noticed that Ted Cruz refrained from endorsing Donnie last night, much to the anger of the Trumpies. I am not a fair judge, since I have disliked Donnie since the 1980s, but it seems to me that a lot of conservatives can’t stand the man either.

    Blake said that Milton’s writing was dull when he wrote about God and Jesus, but exciting when he wrote about Satan. Satan may have been in fetters at the end of the poem, but Milton was free when he wrote about Satan. Blake also claimed that all true poets are on the devil’s side, and that Milton was on the devil’s side, even though he was consciously on God’s side. You mentioned that Satan was in chains at the end of the poem, but that is not relevant to Blake’s argument.. According to Blake, Milton claimed that he was justifying God’s ways to man, but he was really glorifying the devil and rebellion against God. Satan’s defeat at the end of the poem is no evidence against Blake’s position. If you want to say that Blake was wrong, have at it, but I would argue that neither you, nor i, nor Blake really knew what was in the heart of John Milton. I enjoy Blake’s take on the poem but I’m not really convinced.

    Yes, and Macbeth and Hamlet were both dead at the end of their plays, but they were the most compelling characters.
