Good News From the Silver Lining Department

The more I watch this character, the more I’m reminded of a 1970’s era Soviet apparatchik desperately grasping for smidgens of positive news to report amid the devastating failure of the latest Five Year Plan. Witness Harry in December 2009 describing the 3.7 million jobs lost during Obama’s first year in office as “great progress.”

“The great enemy of clear language is insincerity.”
—George Orwell, “Politics and the English Language,” 1946
