I find myself taken with a thought I can’t let go. I wonder if the Right Reverend HS Thompson had waited one day, just long enough to find that tapes had surfaced of George Bush discussing his drug use, would that given him enough schadenfreude, enough reason to carry on if just to write about this corrupt man? Corrupted men with inordinate amounts of power were his stock in trade. Could this have pulled him through the trough long enough to work up the venom to spit at these venal huckster televangelists that are masquerading as statesmen? Probably not, but I can dream my little dreams.
