This post by Borepatch is too good and too timely not to have a "Post of Note" its own.
Comparing the disastrous reign of Ethelred the Unready to that of our current leader, Borepatch's comparisons are uncanny and spot on.
"The more people see him - at home and abroad - the less they fear him. Like Ethelred, he may have a ruthless streak, but in October - what should be the high water mark of his power and influence - he seems unready. He thinks too highly of himself but he doesn't know how to accomplish his goals, he keeps changing his goals, his enemies are increasingly confident, and he surrounds himself with unraed - bad council."
Not only do you get excellent and informative commentaries from Borepatch, but you also get a great history lesson too!
