Andy Divine on ‘The present is female. And the future will be as well’ . Political Observer scoffs!

I always imagine Andy Divine as Waldo Lydecker in his bath, typing his latest column, while being interviewed by detective Mark McPherson, in that Preminger Hollywood kitsch, Laura! Preminger never made another ‘film’ that matched its melodramatic excesses. Waldo as a ‘straight man’ in love with Laura looks as comic as it is!
Andy is only mildly interesting when at full hysterical cry. This week’s set of political observations are a testament to Andy at his most jejune.

About stephenkmacksd

Rootless cosmopolitan,down at heels intellectual;would be writer. 'Polemic is a discourse of conflict, whose effect depends on a delicate balance between the requirements of truth and the enticements of anger, the duty to argue and the zest to inflame. Its rhetoric allows, even enforces, a certain figurative licence. Like epitaphs in Johnson’s adage, it is not under oath.' https://www.lrb.co.uk/v15/n20/perry-anderson/diary
