Little boy blue ascends~most awkwardly~to the chair of Mr Jefferson at Richmond~a late-night guest appears~uninvited and unwanted~bringing with him a strumpet~and informs that little boy blue was the victor all having to do with girls rights or something like that~I have now substantially less cognac than last evening in my bar and a sore head in the bargain~

The red cardinal bird is the mascot of The Catholic University of America~~whose school tie I wear~~as does~~I am told~~to my astonishment and profound embarrassment~~little boy blue~~soon now to be yet another utterly forgotten Governor of Virginia~~acting out in yet another vain quest to play at being Mr Jefferson~~first, present~~and last~~Governor of that Commonwealth~~


Last night, her kitchen duties done, I sent Maria off to her bed and settled in with Mr Stone’s Agony and Ecstasy~~a wonderful work~~the title of which alone most succinctly sums up life in today’s America.

A persistent~~insistent~~pounding on my door commenced~

I do not generally tend my door but as I’d sent Maria to dream with angels~~I opened~up~

Begg~~old boy~how the devil are you~~

Who the hell are you~~

My guest was not immediately recognizable, very drunk, loud and in possession of a colored strumpet~~

Begg~~why isn’t your tele~vision on~~you’re missing the elections~~


It’s not even plugged in~


Anyway~~the news is good and bad~

There’s news for you~

Which do you want first~

Which what?

Which news~~good or bad~~and where’s your girl~

I’ve sent her to her bed~

HA~Ha~~You old buzzard~~where’s your brandy~

All gone~

I know where it is on the bar downstairs~~I’ll fetch it myself~

Jesus~~well use the bad crystal and keep this girl away from the silver~

I’m a nice girl, Mr. Begg~I heard of you~

Oh, I’m sure~

Here we are Begg~to whom shall we drink~

The devil himself~

I give you~~The devil~~


Why are you here–I mean now–it’s half-ten~the dead middle of the night~

I knew you’d have something insightful to say about the political races~

I’ve nothing to say~



Well~~the news guys say it’s all about girls rights today~~all about that~

Oh?  What are those?

I’ve no idea but the news guys are on and on about how little boy blue won in Virginia all down to these girls rights~


You know this kid–goofy looking kid I know~and a Democrat~he went to our school~


Catholic University old boy~cardinal red~

Oh, Really?

Aren’t you the least proud or excited?

The very least~

Well~he’s now the Governor of Virginia~like Jefferson~

Like Jefferson~

Well sort of~

Well~sort of~

Yeah~boy blue is a far cry from Tom Jefferson and a goofy looking bastard too~


Why aren’t you interested~~everybody else is~

Then let everybody else be~

Be what?


Old Christie won easily again up in New jersey~don’t ya know~

I didn’t~

Dontcha care~

I don’t~

Let’s have more cognac~

There’s never enough~

Martel Cordon Bleu~I must say here parenthetically~is like drinking warm velvet~a delight sans, sans, sans~~pareil~

To the devil?

Yes, to him once again, then~

Here’s how~

Begg~they say old Christie is fat but very popular~

Which is he?


Fat or popular?

Oh, both I guess~you’re awfully funny~always~isn’t he a stitch he asks the strumpet~

He is like something from an old movie~

Is that true Mr. Begg~~are you like something from an old movie~

Everybody is like something from a movie~~prostitutes for example are very plentiful in pictures~

I am not a prostitute~~Mr Begg~~I’m a nice girl~

Oh~I’m sure~

Where is your girl~what’s her name~

Maria~she’s to her bed~

You old buzzard~is she another new one~

Another new what~

You know~what do you always call them~~servant girls~

She is a servant girl and  a Catholic~

Everybody’s a Catholic tonight it seems~little boy blue~our red boy he beat, you, me and your new Maria~

My, my~

Begg imports these girls you know baby~

Oh~is that legal Mr. Begg~

I’ve no idea~

Is she pretty~

As a picture~she’s a servant girl~

From where~

Montevideo, Uruguay~

Where in the hell is that~

You don’t need to know that~

Do you sleep with her, Mr. Begg~

You really don’t need to know that~

Anyway~Begg~another for the road~

You’re going~~thank Jesus~

He’s such a cad, hunney~he loves seeing us~

How could that be~I still haven’t figured out who you are~

We went to school together old boy~

I hardly ever went to school~

Did you get bad grades, Mr Begg~

I don’t remember~

What were you doing when you were supposed to be in school~

I don’t remember~

I do~~I remember what he was doing~~

He was doing  girl after girl after girl~

No~~I was reading~

Oh sure Mr. Begg, reading~and I’m a Holy Nun~

Who is this girl~

I don’t know~found her in a bar downtown~

Keep her away from the silver and the good glass~

I’m a good girl, Mr Begg~

Oh~I’m sure~

Speaking of making off with the bone china~they say Madam Clinton will be next President~


You know~news guys~

News guys?

Yeah they have it all worked out~Christie against Madame Clinton~ what do you think~

What a nauseating prospect~

Well~ you don’t like the boy in there now do you~I mean anything would be an improvement~

Don’t know him~never seen him~never heard him speak~wouldn’t know him if I fell over him in the street~

Begg has this remarkable way of walling himself off~

Walling off against what, Mr Begg?

Life’s unpleasantness~and its irritants~

There’s plenty of that to be sure~

Plenty, yes~

Good morning, Senor~sorry~

Ahh Maria~~it’s very early dear~~I have had the intruders in~~watch the silver and the good glass~carefully~

Angel, you~

Senor~want breakfast~

She talks so funny~


She’s a Spainish isn’t she?


So~she’s likely a Democrat and a Catholic too~


Yes, Sir, like all the others tonight~

God help us all~my Maria is no Democrat~she is a member of my household~

Begg~what about the race with old fat Christie and the old fat Madame Clinton~

Sounds like an even race~no weight breaks for either horse it sounds~

The news guys say–it’s them–and nobody else~just those two~both fat~

The news guys~

Yep~ they say they are the experts~


So what do you think?

About what?

Clinton running against old Christie?

I think I remember when she was elected before~

To be President~Oh!! no, no~that was her husband–Pudgy Willy~another fat one~


This time~it’s the wife~the news guys say it’s a sure bet~

Yes~I remember them saying that~some years ago when she was elected President before~

Where do you get these ideas~

Well~~from your news guys~they’re~~as you say~the experts~

Begg~~you appear to be out of cognac which means~~we’re out of here~

Thank heaven for shortages~~none too soon~

Well~hats off to little boy blue~old fat Clinton and old fat Christie~

Of course yes~~hats off~~anything~~pants off~~if it’ll get you to GO~

Good morning~

Goodbye Mr. Begg~I hope to see you again sometime~it was an honor~

I doubt it will be repeated~~I do not customarily patronize prostitutes~

You never know~maybe you will sometimes~on occasion~and when you do~ we can meet~

I doubt it very much~

If you don’t like what I do~what should I change into~

Well~maybe you can run against the two fat candidates in 2016, my dear~

Will you vote for me~over them I mean~

Oh, yes, sure~I always try to support the most morally upright candidate~

What does that mean~you’re joshing me aren’t you~

I never would~



Thank Jesus God~~they are gone~~ Maria

Some breakfast, Senor?

Grand idea, grand idea~eggs and ham and toast and broiled tomatoes with garlic~my dear angel~

Oh and Maria~open a champagne~a good one~

Yes, sir, your Krug~sir?

Ahh–leche de mare~~si, si, Maria, besos~

Thank you, sir~

Maria~do you desire girl’s rights?

I don’t know what that is Sir–should I or should I not~

Give them a pass I think, dear

What Sir?

Girls Rights, Maria~you give them a pass~

Yes, sir~I pass them~I go to get your breakfast~

And my Krug~

Yes. Sir, Krug~

Si, si, Maria~mi~Krug~~sans, sans, sans~ pareil

Yes, Sir~

Little angel~

Why do little angels need these~what the devil are they called Maria~girl’s rights?~I mean~why do girls need them~if they’re pretty~I mean~?

I don’t need them Sir~unless you want me to have them~

Oh!! heavens no dear~~they’re not the sort of thing for a sweet angel like you~I think they are for fat girls~

I see, Sir~OK~I stay skinny for you, Sir~

Such an angel, that girl~what a perfectly wonderful way to start the new day after that odd interlude with such a bumptious young man whose ~~very newly acquired~~family money gives him a sense of entitlement far away undue him~~and of course~~his prostitute~~

Breakfast, Senor~and your Krug~~~

Maria–sit by me dear~

At table~Sir?

Yes, just so~hold my hand~

Are you ill, Sir~

Oh, no, silly boots~we are going to pray for our breakfast~

Oh, Yes, sir~mi mommy prays at meals~

Does she~little lamb?

She does~

Maria~we thank the Lord Above for His Bounty here below~now given~


Ah~men, Sir~

In sunshine and in shadow~~I hold tight to the Republican view of time and money~~I write night and day~~yet~~while impecunious~~I am vastly overpaid~~in that taking pay to do what I love is unfair~~to my employer~~in a fair system~~under such circumstances~~I should pay him~~not he me~~I am far, far too old a man to be sexually confused~~praise Jesus~~but I am yet young enough to be politically confused~~is anyone not~in an absolute sense~~I am a Catholic Royalist~~in a practical sense~~I am a Classical Liberal~~a Gaullist~~a Rockefeller Republican~~in either sense~~my head is soon for the chopping block~~to hasten my interlude with Madame La Guillotine~~


~~Κύριε ἐλέησον~~

Rejoice and Glad!!

"Jean-Marie Le Pen is a friend. He is dangerous for the political set because he's the only one who's sincere. He says out loud what many people think deep down, and what the politicians refrain from saying because they are either too demagogic or too chicken. Le Pen, with all his faults and qualities, is probably the only one who thinks about the interests of France before his own."~~
French actor~~Alain Delon
