Goodenough Gismo

  • Gismo39
    This is the classic children's book, Goodenough Gismo, by Richmond I. Kelsey, published in 1948. Nearly unavailable in libraries and the collector's market, it is posted here with love as an "orphan work" so that it may be seen and appreciated -- and perhaps even republished, as it deserves to be. After you read this book, it won't surprise you to learn that Richmond Irwin Kelsey (1905-1987) was an accomplished artist, or that as Dick Kelsey, he was one of the great Disney art directors, breaking your heart with "Pinocchio," "Dumbo," and "Bambi."

Liberals make you look like a fascist nutjob, conservatives make you look like a traitorous wimp.

Yeah, that about sums-up the attack strategies of the two sides. Seems to have its roots in Nixon vs. McGovern and has only gotten more shrill.


What do Centrists do?


Centrists just call anyone who disagrees with them a partisan hack. But we're just not far along enough to have a full-blown Bork or Swift-boat style playbook.


Actually, swift-boat veterans of all political stripes Swift-boat. The group's organizer, himself a trial lawyer, was an Edwards supporter. Conservatives gladly helped them get their message out, but they acted in response to the dubious statements (some Kerry himself retracted) in the campaign biography.
