Discourse Error

Discourse Error

Discourse Error (2002)

John at Blogenlust alerted me to this gem from John Hinderacker of Powerline -- Time's "Blog of the Year":

It must be very strange to be President Bush. A man of extraordinary vision and brilliance approaching to genius, he can't get anyone to notice. He is like a great painter or musician who is ahead of his time, and who unveils one masterpiece after another to a reception that, when not bored, is hostile.

Blogenlust awards Powerline the inaugural Idiot Wind Award for such a migraine-inducer, but I want more tangible documentation.

The illiteracy level of our children are appalling...

"Ahead of his time"?

I want visuals to accompany such colossal, deluded hyperbole. Let's have Hinderacker's "very strange" lament as a cable news screen crawl accompanied by all the Bush pics and vids we've come to know and love: falling off bike(s), flipping the bird when Texas Gov, picking his nose on Jumbotron. Or, maybe, Hindrocket text screen crawl with Best-of-Bush vids retooled as MTV "pop up" video as "She Blinded Me with Science" plays in the background -- when suddenly up pops Is our children learning or They misunderestimated me. Now there's a presentational format designed to "unveil the masterpieces" and truly showcase the "genius" of President Bush.

Or, then again, today's image may be the most fitting response to Powerline's blithering idiocy.

Hi Whitney,

Thanks for sharing the link to your art blog.

I liked some of your drawings -- especially the ones of your Grandma's house and the old shoe. Isn't that how Warhol started? Drawing shoes?

Take care...
