@sullydish puzzling silence on Amy Coney Barrett. Old Socialist comments

I’ve been catching up on reading Andy Divine’s essays, and noticed his total silence on the Amy Coney Barrett Senate Confirmation Hearings. I’ve gone back to October 9, 2020, and not even a mention.
Don’t miss his latest production, with the learning and intellectual heft of Cecil B. De Mille epic, aided by his Oxford education with telling references to:  the Temple of Eleusis,Plato, Marcus Aurelius, Cicero,etc. ( Hurry the Pay Wall is fast approaching!)

Headline: The Psychedelic Election

Subheadline: A new issue arrives on the horizon. Why it matters.


I usually make the daily ‘rounds’ of Politico, The New York Times, The Financial Times, New York Magazine, The Atlantic, The New Republic , The American Conservative and sometimes The Economist, and Twitter searching for likely subjects to read and comment upon. I am a journalistic parasite. I didn’t find one of Andy’s essays published outside his blog.

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
