The Lordly Musings of Conrad Black

As incredibly delightful as is the rapier wit of Baron Black of Crossharbour (could a more impossibly wicked name have been invented for the man?), one has to wonder why his correspondent (conservative author and “community activist” Bob Plamondon) saw fit to share Black’s wickedly acerbic barbs about various luminaries of the Canadian political scene with the Globe & Mail’s most vacuous and addlepated ninny, Jane Taber. As for calling Green Party leader Elizabeth May a “frumpy, noisy, ill-favoured, half-deranged windbag”… Sheesh! Talk about “pot meet kettle”…

  1. As incredibly delightful as is the rapier wit of Baron Black of Crossharbour (could a more impossibly wicked name have been invented for the man?)

    How about Viscount Conrad of Coleman Correctional Complex? Or The Artist Formerly Know as ‘Prints’? The second one is a stretch, but its funny if you think about it…

  2. I figure His Lardship can have his little snipes since far worse has been said of him and his consort.

  3. I like his style sometimes, but I’m more of the opinion that the first rule of a good writer is clarity.

    That being said, I don’t know what his books are like because I’ve never read one.
