AT readers already know about the lively wit and insightful analysis brought to this site by Clarice Feldman, whose Sunday column "Clarice's Pieces" is a smash hit. But word is getting around. On Pajamas Media's Tatler Blog, Belladonna Rogers pens a tribute to Clarice and Clarice's Pieces, entitled, "A Woman and a Blog to Watch: the New Washington Monument, Clarice Feldman." An excerpt:
Sunday mornings are now enlivened by a new and lustrous successor to [the New York Times] The Week in Review. It comes in the form of a far sweeter treat, Clarice's Pieces, which appears on The American Thinker. PJM contributor Clarice Feldman's mega-brain compresses each depressing, lie-filled, irritating past week's news into a succinct, trenchant analysis that always includes delicious zingers to start off the week. Her wit is wry and her writing is crisp. She's the thinking person's Sunday Morning Live.
Once a top-notch lawyer in the pre-Eric Holder Department of Justice, where she was a powerful intellectual force in the Office of Special Investigations, there's nothing rotten that escapes her eagle eye or sharp commentary. Heranalysis of the lack of credible evidence in the vicious, politically-motivated prosecution of I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby in 2006 in The Weekly Standard remains the definitive statement on that tragic chapter in American legal history.
A voracious reader of countless political and legal-analysis blogs, Clarice Feldman distills them for her Sunday pieces, as well as for readers of The Tatler. If the names of all the websites she devours were compiled in a vertical collection, they would tower over any sky-scraping edifice you can think of: The Washington Monument, Chicago's Sears Tower, Boston's Hancock Tower and San Francisco's Transamerica Tower.
