Novak quotes
Posted by: McQ on Friday, July 27, 2007

Apparently Robert Novak's autobiography has been recently released and is entitled "“The Prince of Darkness: 50 Years Reporting in Washington”. Well that would "endarken" anyone.

But I did get a kick out of a couple of quote:
On blogs: “I’m 76 years old, and pretty soon I’m going to a place where there are no blogs.”
When you're an old dog and you've never really had to answer for your columns or take a raft of public criticism over them, I can see why "going to a place where there are no blogs", might be appealing.

As an aside, it reminds me of my promised private act of retirement (should I not end up dying on the road or something equally as grim - for some of you your cheerful thought of the day ;)). I plan on going out to Lake Lanier, which is near where I live, and taking my cell phone along with me. Then at an appropriate spot, I'm going to see how far I can throw it out into that lake. Of course I'll probably get arrested and have no way of calling my wife and asking her to come bail me out.

Anyway:
» He said LBJ and JFK were the only Democrats he’s voted for, “but I regret Johnson.”
Umm ... I can understand that regret. I'm not so sure, had Kennedy survived that he might not have regretted that as well given what was left for Johnson to work with.
» On George W. Bush: “All presidents look better after they’re dead, and George W. Bush can count on that.”
I found this humorous but pretty much on target. Of course "looking better" after death is a relative thing isn't it, depending on how deep of a hole you were in prior to the inevitable.
