Weekly Standard Develops Sense of Humor

In the upcoming issue of the Weekly Standard, the always funny P.J. O'Rourke has a masterful column describing the American electoral process to Europeans:

Hillary Clinton is "America's ex-wife."

A man can be a Democrat to the core, going into the voting booth to pull the lever with the donkey label no matter what. Then he sees Hillary's name on the ballot. And it all comes back to him .  .  . the first marriage .  .  . the time he came home a little late, it wasn't even midnight, and he'd only had four or five beers, and she threw his bowling ball down the storm sewer.
