Today’s Quote

October 26, 2007

While the four corners of Wingnuttia erupted in a chorus of complaints about Al Gore’s Nobel, Doris Lessing’s nod for literature didn’t raise much of a stir. This interview in the Guardian should change that in a hurry:

“I always hated Tony Blair, from the beginning. Many of us hated Tony Blair – I think he has been a disaster for Britain and we have suffered him for many years. I said it when he was elected: ‘This man is a little showman who is going to cause us problems,’ and he did. As for Bush, he’s a world calamity. Everyone is tired of this man. Either he is stupid or he is very clever, although you have to remember he is a member of a social class which has profited from wars.”

Not only that, but Lessing thinks the 9/11 attacks weren’t such a big deal when compared with the toll exacted by IRA bombings over the years. But she also says nasty things about the Iranian government. What’s a winger to do?
