Skip to comments.A writer's life: P.J. O'Rourke (An interview with the author)
Posted on 12/26/2005 5:28:02 PM PST by Stoat
It would be terribly easy to find thousands of pictures of hideously and frightfully ugly Leftist females, but rather than create an ugly thread I think that it would be equally meaningful and far more fun to post pics of just a few of the innumerable Conservative ladies who illustrate his point:
Dr. Christine Rosen
Jenna and Barbara Bush
Dr. Condoleezza Rice
PJ rocks. One of the few writers who can make me openly laugh.
Also - when is Ann Coulter going to reproduce? I'm willing to assist in anyway possible.
She has mentioned on numerous occasions that she is willing to look over the resume of potential suitors.
This is basically a very poorly written article about one of the funniest, and sharp witted modern political humorists alive.
It was posted entirely as a shameless excuse to create another thread to post pictures of Conservative ladies who are easy on the eyes.
Needs a pic of Tammy Bruce.
"Also - when is Ann Coulter going to reproduce? I'm willing to assist in anyway possible.
On a recent post I wrote that Ann Coulter has to tie knots in her legs to make knees, but man, someone messed up on the knots in that picture.
Sort of ironic Coulter is brought up on a thread about someone with actual writing talent who is actually funny, P.J. O'Rourke.
PJ and IowaHawk are my favourites.
I love PJ. I have been hooked on him since Parliament of Whores which was glowlingly reviewed by none other than Richard M. Nixon. My favorite chapter dealing with the then excessive government spending of several hundred billion per year, was entitled something like, What the f--k, what the f--k, what the really f--king f--k, to paraphrase. I couldn't stop laughing. The I read Holidays from Hell where PJ decides to visit every warring hellhole in the world and write about it like a traveloque. In the midst of the Lebanon Civil War he goes through customs in Beirut. The guard inquired the purpose of his visit, "Tourism," PJ proclaims, to the collective disbelief of a Hezbollah division. How he survived that one is a mystery, but he made them stamp his passport to prove that he was there.
Another great one was Eat the Rich where he examines why some nations are rich and others are poor. Upon his trip to Africa, the answer becomes self evident.
Hope he has a few good ones left.
I read about five of his books this year mostly over the summer while on vacation. He's one of those writers whose ability for laugh-out-loud lines is constantly amazing. And yes, he can write about what's in your refrigerator and make it funny.
I love O'Rourke, but as much as I agree that Coulter goes over the line too much, she is also a very funny writer. Not as funny as O'Rourke, but then I much prefer looking at Ann's physiognomy than P.J.'s.
