Politcal Frequencies

Ron (the Sublibrarian) has performed a freakin' fascinating word frequency list on George Bush's recent Iraq War speech. Check it out here, and see just how insidious this administration's "Us vs. Them" paradigm is.

Peter, I saw you in Poets & Writers this morning!

Felicitations! [fancy French way of saying 'Congrats!']

Peter's famous. I'll sell you a map to his house for $15.00.

Erin B. said...

Rebecca, what kind of map is it:

-Hand-drawn with broken crayon?
-Blue-print snagged from a trash heap?
-Imaginary?

Radish King said...

Yes! And also glitter and lots and lots of glue and some stickers. Scented stickers.

Erin B. said...

Wow, that was quick! The scented stickers pushed me over the edge.

How about we trade--an exquisite corpse penned by me and my buddy Lilius for your hand-made Peter Pereira House Map.

Deal?

Radish King said...

Nope.
Money talks, babe. I got poems up the you-know-what.

Patty said...

That is fascinating, and frightening.

Peter said...

Patty: which? the Bush speech word list, or the map to my house? Both? hehehe

Peter said...

Rebecca: you can get more than $15 ! (grin)

Radish King said...

Okay. I'll hold out for $20, then buy a bottle of tequila, and we can have drinks on your deck. xxoo

Peter said...

Deal.
