You got your chocolate in my peanut butter!

P.J. O'Rourke is one of my favorite writers. He and Hunter S. Thompson were the two journalistic lights guiding my early political development. I met O'Rourke once in London, and got a couple of books autographed. I read all of his books published through the mid-90's, but have been remiss since then.

O'Rourke writing about John Kerry is like Reese's combination of peanut butter and chocolate: two great tastes that taste great together. O'Rourke mocks Kerry mercilessly, exposing him, as Herman Melville might say, as a "Miserable man! Oh! most contemptible and worthy of all scorn..."

I have to go out and get the most recent book!
