It seems that for several weeks, many comments have been going into my spam filter. I just picked out the real ones (most are spam) and published a bunch of comments. So sorry if yours was among those that sat for days or weeks. I will now be vigilant on the Blogger 'comment moderation' page to make sure it doesn't happen again. And thanks to Andrew Long for pointing the problem out to me.
I'm Andrew Sprung, a media consultant with a lasting interest in how democracy works, how it malfunctions and self-corrects. My working assumption is that you can't fool all the people all the time -- at least, not in Fox News's current stage of development.
I have a Ph.D. in medieval English literature and a propensity to parse the rhetoric and logic of our political leaders as well as that of media pundits and scholars who jump into the national debate. I wrote a dissertation on the remarkably humane and subtle medieval English anchorite Julian of Norwich, a mystic nun whose knack of squaring circles and framing paradoxes reminds me a little of our current president. A sampling of that work (mind the google gaps) is here: http://bit.ly/OzwsrR
