Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2002 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

Longtime associates know that I think Joseph Lieberman (A*-Connecticut) resembles the rock star Beck. (I mention this eerie similarity every time I sell someone a magazine featuring Beck on the cover. To date I have not sold In Praise of Public Life, but were I to do so, rest assured that I would continue the tradition. Also, if elected to a position on a tabloid newspaper, I would pursue an article entitled "Beck: Lieberman's Secret Love Child" as a pet project for my district.)

Only today did Leonard casually mention to me the analagous electrifying resemblance from the other side of the aisle: Trent Lott looks like David Letterman! As Leonard notes, an episode of Letterman's show featuring guest Beck would seem a model of bipartisan bonhomie.
