Now I know where the comparison of Hillary Clinton to the White Witch originated. It apparently began with a piece written by John Kass for the Chicago Tribune. Today in the Tribune online Kass wrote:
"Last Sunday, I dipped my fingertips into fairyland analogies, into C. S. Lewis' land of Narnia, describing Obama as a gentle forest faun, the Mr. Tumnus of the Democratic primaries, the one national political character who gets media hugs from almost everybody. I like Obama, but I won't apologize for comparing him to a kind and beloved faun. He is indeed the Mr. Tumnus of
American politics, gently offering free tea and cakes to all Americans, all the free stuff that won't cost us anything (unless you're a taxpayer). He doesn't play a flute, but he sure makes great speeches, and you can see that infectious, charismatic Tumnusotude on TV. But, blinded by Obama, I foolishly used the 'white witch' analogy for Sen. Clinton. So I apologize to her, and not just because my wife told me to. Women have it hard enough without foolish 'white witch' analogies. I went too far, I shouldn't have done it, and besides, Hillary had that emotional moment at the diner the other day, and you probably won't believe me, but it melted my frozen heart. I think it was an absolutely sincere moment. And even though a politician would use everything -- even a sincere moment -- the fact is that Hillary Clinton let her guard down, finally, and stopped being icy."
So there you have it. But still no journalist has dared to compare any of the politicians in the current U. S. presidential race to Aslan. And I think that is very wise.
Any votes for which candidate is most like Mr. Beaver?
