· Figurative Rhetoric: A Ringing Endorsement ·
What I've in mind here is a fine new weblog, called Figures of Speech, It Figures, by Jay Heinrichs. Here's Jay's entry for October 4:
If you want other sharp figures of speech every day, do tune in, for Jay has the sense to teach us all rhetoric, Rhetoric, RHETORIC with, well . . .
But I doubt Jay's a republican, Republican, REPUBLICAN.Permalink
Actually, you'd think Jay (my alter ego) was a Republican if the Democrats were in power. Just think what fun he would have with Clinton's "That depends what 'is' is."
Like journalism, deliberative rhetoric should afflict the comfortable and comfort the afflicted. (Hey, that's a chiasma! You'll find it in the site's list of rhetorical terms.)
Many thanks for the mention in your excellent blog.
. . . figaro, Figaro, FIGARO!
Alas, poor Styles doesn't even have an "alter ego" around here.
Do forgive me; I'd forgotten.
What fun! Thanks for introducing us to an interesting correspondent! "More, please," in an Oliverian Twisted sort of way.
I would prefer "Chubby Chekovian."
Alas, poor Harriet Miers withdrew her name for consideration today.
Our president knew her heart, her character, but not, alas, her mind.
