Yesterday I quoted Madeleine Albright, Secretary of State (1997-2001) in the Clinton Administration: "There's a special place in hell for women who don't help each other." The context was Albright's urging of women to vote for a woman, Hillary Clinton.
This just in from James Soriano, "a retired Foreign Service Officer who spent three decades in the State Department, most of them in the Middle East." (from his mini-bio):
I remember Madeleine Albright saying that a couple of years ago, and in a bit of rhetorical jiu jitsu I used the phrase as the punch line in an essay Crisis Magazine posted yesterday.I was inspired to write the piece because of what Francis The Leftist said of the Vigano revelations: "I won't say a word about it." Francis has many opinions about leftist enthusiasms, but maintains radio silence on issues of great concern to traditionalists.Francis' silence on critical Church teachings somehow reminds me of the scene in the Inferno with Ugolino, who was starved to death in a Pisan tower with his sons. He was a father who said not one word to his children in their pain and anguish. Bergoglio e Ugolino. I tried to twin them. The editor thought it was a bit of stretch, but the commenters seem to have gotten the point.Regards,Jim
