Three from Benedict Seraphim
  • On Joe Biden. It shows Obama’s fear and insecurity. But I don’t think it’s matter and anti-matter; Obama’s an interventionist (pro-war on Afghanistan to look tough for example) and more establishment than his fans like to think. He won’t lose those people so he can afford to reach out and choose someone calculated to appeal to a chunk of the swing vote, a muddled-middle white nominal RC like the kind of voter who doesn’t listen to Deal Hudson. Here’s the Times: No threat but no asset either. I’m not the only one who remembers Biden plagiarised Neil Kinnock.
  • Forgiveness in a Communist prison.
  • St Maximus the Confessor.
