"HOW SHALL WE THEN LIVE?" Francis Schaeffer

We first wrote about David Blunkett this past December when he was the British Home Secretary who had been revealed to be a Home Secretary with a difference or two. He was alleged to have engaged in an affair with a married woman -- four months into her marriage. Blunkett was alleged to have fathered the child of the married woman.

The next sentence is classic phraseology -
"Blunkett, coincidentally, is a blind man in the land of one-eyed men..."

JB here: Without staunch moral underpinnings ( a prospect that brings dread to the average westerner these days) all of our leaders could be considered blind men in the land of one-eyed men.
It appears to be all show, all posturing, no meat. The absolutely radical exception would be GWB who actually puts actions to words. That's a strange experience among today's politicians who loath actions and pray the words will fool the masses long enough to bring re-election.
