HAPPY WARRIORS: P.J. O’Rourke
Some things Never Change
[PART 2 of the O’Rourke, Novak roast at Conservative Political Action Committee (CPAC) Feb 11, 1994]
“Patrick Jake “P. J.” O’Rourke (born November 14, 1947) is an American political satirist, journalist, writer and author. O’Rourke is the H. L. Mencken Research Fellow at the Cato Institute . . .  . . . he is also an incredibly brilliant and funny man.”
He is the consummate iconoclastic satirist with book titles such as Peace Kills (2004) and Give War a Chance (1992) . He earned his right to exercise his signature caustic wit by his in–harms-way, on-the ground war-correspondent role that took him to 40 different countries over 21 years from the tearing down of the Berlin wall in 1989, Kuwait 1991, Somalia 1993, Washington in 9/11, Egypt, Iraq 2003, “Lebanon, the West Bank, the Soviet Union, apartheid-era South Africa, the jungles of the Philippines, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan’s Northwest Frontier, Bosnia, Kosovo, etc.”.  His satirical thrust is pertinent to Israel’s fight to survive.
In this YouTube clip from 1994, he analyzes the Clinton Administration philosophy and performance and it sounds like “Barak Obama Administration – Light”. With the political left, some things never change.
