For the reasons set forth in this blog's September 6 Come Clean . . . post, your not-even-slightly-humble blogger is not interested in anything the nation's poseur-in-chief has to say. Therefore I did not listen to his speech last night and instead spent the time in a more rewarding way -- with and listening to a far more erudite, interesting, and honest 5-year-old grandchild.
Today, however, some of the follow-on reports on the latest words emitted by the golden-voiced orator have been worth noting. Of particular interest was the recasting of the speech as an honest one, as set forth, surprisingly, in the Washington Post in this column.
