Without You Know Who

Email Print

Amazing.  Gerald Baker writes a review of “Double Down” by Mark Halperin and John Heilemann which concerns the presidential elections of 2012, and a bit on that of 2008 (http://online.wsj.com/news/articles/SB10001424052702303482504579175850306497402). It appeared in the War Street Journal of 11/5/13, page A15. In this review, he never mentions the name of You Know Who. I’ll give you a hint as to the identity of You Know Who. He has converted more people to the libertarian banner than anyone else; perhaps even more than every other libertarian put together. Need more of a hint? He is a doctor from Texas. Need more? His initials are RP, and his name is not Rand Paul. I’m not going to mention his name. I’ll leave it to you, gentle reader, to figure this out. I am guided in this by my great respect for Gerard Baker in particular, and the War Street Journal in general. If they don’t mention the name of You Know Who, why should I? I have no idea if “Double Down” by Mark Halperin and John Heilemann mentions You Know Who in their entire book. I have not read it. All I know is that in a review of their book Baker mentions at least a dozen other names who figured into the presidential elections of 2012 and 2008, without once mentioning You Know Who. Ok, last hint: You Know Who is not an imperialist war monger. He is the diametric opposite.
