R.I.P. William Safire

He worked for Richard Nixon (which, in these dark days of Republican ideological bottom-feeding, is almost a badge of honor), and he wrote a lot of trash during the Clinton years, but Safire’s Political Dictionary belongs on your bookshelf.  It’s intelligent, funny and — amazingly — not at all cynical.  Just a pleasure to read.

Buy it.  ISBN: 0195340612.
