THE Following column, in The Guardian on 9 November:
GAVE Rise to the following devastating sagacities:
ONE Is inclined to take heart from the Democrat-party gains, in Tuesday’s US general election; and, that is so quite regardless of the fact one is a Stanley Baldwin-Tory!
NEVERTHELESS, Now that the Democrat-party are more-or-less ‘in charge’, the great danger is that they will be tarred with the brush of inevitable withdrawal, from al-‘Iraq.
THIS Is simply because of the notoriously short-term memory problems of the ‘baby boom’ American illiterati, now advancing at light-speed, upon the precipice of Alzheimer’s dementia, the grave — and, historical oblivion.
“PLUS These God-damn hounds don’t KNOW any history in the FIRST place!” as my 86-years-old farm-neighbour Judson Andersen put it just this afternoon, here at home in southern Minnesota. “Just LOOK at the vacant-faced DUMB bastards!” Mr Andersen made a wide gesture of contempt at the full parking-lot, as we tooled on past the Eagle Lake, Minnesota, liquor-store.
OUR First snow-fall fore-cast for here, to-morrow — after sixty-eight (fahrenheit) degrees, on the Tuesday….
AND, That’s THAT,

‘MortimerPeacock’: Good of you to say so! All of the credit for any good in it must necessarily redound to the always-insightful Mr Judson Andersen, of course. No fool in his mere fifties could hope ever to be so clear-minded. I am merely the amanuensis; and, indeed, it is a privilege to be the Boswell — to Mr Andersen’s sagacious & ever-fatally pointed Samuel Johnson.

THE Following letter was composed (in American) for the provincial newspaper, here at home in southern Minnesota; and, then, withdrawn by me as it very fortunately (!) proved not necessary:

TO The Editor:
FOR The first time in my adult life, and against all the finest traditions and best ideas of my family, I voted for every Democrat candidate that I could find. It is because frankly I consider the national Republican party at least to be not distinguishable from an incompetent criminal organization.
NEVERTHELESS, I trust that the Democrat party will DROP its projected court-room ballot-challenge in the Virginia Senate-race, regardless of the temptation to grab “all the power now.”
THAT Would be childish for the longterm and not wise, because if the Democrat party can just back off a little bit and let the Republicans taste the FINAL humiliation of being GIVEN by Democrats the sop of so flimsy a majority in the US Senate, why for a good long time to come the Democrat party will have these neo-con highjackers discredited and cornered and eating out of Democrat hands.
AND Yes, what I have just written is straight out of Machiavelli, whom these neo-cons stumblebums finally and fatally do NOT understand.
WE Who are actually and (hopefully!) decently Republican want to take our party back, and we now necessarily need our Democrat friends to help us out — with just a little bit of a light touch.
I Think the foregoing speaks for itself — only think to yourselves what infantile whingeing to the courts we now should be witnessing, had the Rape Ugly Con incumbent, in Virginia, not thrown up his hands. Of course the above is ‘dishonest’, inasmuch as I positioned myself as a ‘Republican’ rather than actually conservative — however, when one is speaking to elephants and jackasses, of hay and barley, one does not go on, about roast beef, broad beans & ale!
A Very Snowy Morning it is, to-day, in southern Minnesota, six inches already, and more wetly coming down. The Horse Girls, my Icelandic ponies Huldy and Ragna, are deliberately standing by the paddock-rail & where they may be seen from the road, with the snow all piled on their backs — mainly to get sympathy off of the neighbours.
GOOD Morning (or Afternoon, as the case may be!),
