In case you missed it, here's how the last seven days looked to Mark:
The week began with an orgy of droologies for Cuba's murderous dictator. Steyn considered the phenomenon in our most-read piece of the se'nnight "A Monster And His Suck-Ups".
~On Monday Mark joined Stuart Varney on Fox Business to discuss the Democrats' doubling down on identity politics. Click below to watch:
As Mark alluded to at the end, the interview got off to a wobbly start.
~On Tuesday Steyn addressed the latest outbreak of Allahu Akbaritis in America: an Ohio State University student who objected to Muslims being stereotyped as violent terrorists. So he went bananas and stabbed everybody.
~Is Trump like British Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, or former French National Front leader Jean-Marie Le Pen, or is he the Liberace de nos jours? At midweek Mark examined a new journalistic genre in "The Donaldgänger".
~On Friday Steyn pondered Kellogg's decision to extend American politics' cold Civil War into their breakfast cereals, and, for our Saturday movie feature, noted that it was all a long way from the more, er, focused obsessions of the company's founders.
~For our weekend musical offering, Mark picked three songs from one flop show that have been recorded by everyone from Tony Bennett to Nina Simone to Van Morrison.
Speaking of bestselling recording artists, Steyn was very touched to discover early in the week that over at Amazon he and his cat album were keeping some stellar company:
As Mark put it:
I think you'll find most critics agree that if you had to name the five greatest vocalists of all time it would be Bing, Frank, Harry Connick, Ella, and, er, me. Although probably with Connick in fifth place.
Aside from Feline Groovy, there are plenty of other great Christmas gift ideas over at the Steyn store.
A new week at SteynOnline begins tonight with our Song of the Week.
