Drabble Drivel

Margaret Drabble, the eminent British novelist, has an especially vile, loathesome column in the London Telegraph. One of her milder, more balanced comments:

My anti-Americanism has become almost uncontrollable. It has possessed me, like a disease. It rises up in my throat like acid reflux, that fashionable American sickness. I now loathe the United States and what it has done to Iraq and the rest of the helpless world.

    I mean, they were often nuts, granted. But were they this nuts, this much of the time?

    Well, Dean, back in my day the British anti-Americanists wore red coats and saluted their own George (III)….
