Understatement of the year

Posted By on Tue, Aug 28, 2007 at 10:18 AM

I was at the coffee shop this morning, minding my own business, reading Time.   I noticed former U.S. Attorney Bud Cummins next to me, refilling his cup. ( I've never even met him)   Some friendly guy was joking with him "I thought you were trying to stay out of the paper?"    Bud responded something like --- "They messed with the wrong guy."     Not in a gloating way, more of in a -- they underestimated my tenacity - kind of way.   If anyone should feel vindicated - it it Bud Cummins.  No need to gloat anyway - and he seems far too classy to do so.  He went on to say there was "one more guy out there" - I assume he means one more that needs to quit / be fired/ be prosecuted, at the Justice Department but I really wasn't trying to eavesdrop, I just found it all interesting.

  • Klan's president

    Everything that Donald Trump does — make that everything that he says — is calculated to thrill his lustiest disciples. But he is discovering that what was brilliant for a politician is a miscalculation for a president, because it deepens the chasm between him and most Americans.
  • On Charlottesville

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis. A parade of love-deprived nerds marching bravely out of their parents' basements carrying tiki torches from Home Depot.
