"I follow him to serve my turn upon him."
Othello (I, i, 42)
Francis Bacon, Jean Jacques Rousseau, W.E.B. DuBois, and Joe Morris are all political thinkers cut from the very same cloth as Iago in Shakespeare's Othello, The Moor of Venice. Bacon denounced every patron, beginning with the Earl of Essex, Rousseau the children of his mistress to the streets and certain death as well as Diderot, and DuBois stabbed his mentor Booker T. Washington in the back at Niagara Falls in 1905. Lovely chaps one and all.
Dick Morris could make the trio above and their fictional mirror image IAGO look like Faith, Hope, and Charity on picnic with Prudence.
This guy is a beaut. Today he posts advice to John McCain in the Baltimore Sun. The guy is as sharp as a cutter's scalpel and about as warm-hearted. Senator McCain take the advice and show Dick the curb.
Now, the guy I love is Jim Carville. He is the one Democrat who would cover the back of the person who signs his checks. Like John McCain, Carville is the Real Deal and Carville would never cross the street for sacks of gold over his convictions. He also, like McCain has great taste in women. Mr. Carville would take a bullet for his boss. He's a mensch! Dick Morris is Iago.
