How Politics Breaks All Ten Commandments

This blog began with a preemptive hat tip to, among others, P. J. O'Rourke, the literary love child of H. L. Mencken and Mark Twain. Today we must link our gentle readers to his fine and troubling contribution to the Weekly Standard's tenth anniversary symposium.

Politics, argues Miami University's Greatest Alumnus, is evil. He enumerates how by nature it breaks all ten commandments.

He is right.

And this blog is generally political.

Hmm.

Is repentance in order?

If in a few days gentle readers discover that SWNID is blogging only on music, baseball and gardening, you'll know our decision.

I would argue over who is really Miami U's greatest alumnus. I would also argue that by covering only music, baseball, and gardening that you leave your "generally political" scope. Baseball, for example, may not break all the commandments but I know Pete rose broke a bunch of 'em. (See also Bonds, Barry.)
