“A writer’s notebook is not a diary. Writers react. Writers need a place to record these reactions. That’s what a writer’s notebook is for. It gives you a place to write down what makes you angry or sad or amazed, to write down what you noticed and don’t want to forget. A writer’s notebook gives you a place to live like a writer.” - Ralph Fletcher

After a series of gaffes, a dismal standing in the polls, and a forgotten line or two, Perry certainly doesn’t seem to be headed to the White House. This latest wave of unpopularity surely won’t help. But ultimately, one could make the argument that contrasting the negative response to a teenage Internet star and the response to a divisive politician is nonsensical. One has nothing to do with the other. It’s sort of like contrasting the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell to prayer in schools.
