The Personal is Political. The Political is Personal.

oh Dear

Someone at the LA Times has a sense of humor.

The essence of the modern Republican governing strategy is self-reliance. . . . This approach represents the political equivalent to what the North Korean government calls Juche: a strategy of maximizing independence by minimizing dependence on outside forces.

I look forward during the next five weeks to see press releases as follows:

On the evening of a spring summer day the president visited a farm village on the outskirts of Pyongyang Crawford. He saw women drawing water from a well after their work. Considerate of their trouble, he told officials of the farm Andy Card that a water-supply system should be established in the village.

Later, he visited the village again and learned that water works had not yet been built because a spring was not found. He said: Let us find out it together.

He looked round topography around the village before going to an ascent of a valley not far from the village together with officials of the farm. He looked around and pointed to a spot, telling them to dig there. When they dug the spot, marvelously a fountain of water gushed out.

The villagers have since been freed from trouble over water.
