Our "Drift" challenge yielded an embarrassment of hilarious, literate blurb offerings.  Here is a Top 10 list, though a top 20 or even Top 30 list could have been easily compiled. Many humble thanks for your collective genius.

  • In my farewell address I warned of foreign entanglements, yet I fail to find myself cited as a source of inspiration, nor am I mentioned in the dedication. Otherwise, a decent read. --G. W. Washington (@Dogjudge)
  • I'm drinking over it! --Carrie Nation (@eaglelady11)
  • Drift reminds me of a movie I was in. --Ronald Reagan (@leopardgrrl1)
  • Examine carefully. Within these lines you will find what you seek: a primer for any would-be emperor. After all, the art of war is of vital importance to the State. --Sun Tzu (Marlene J. Geary)
  • Reading Maddow's "Drift", I find myself reaffirmed in my belief that Man is the only animal that blushes, and the only animal that has a reason to. --Mark Twain (Carol Louise Atkins)
  • There are the unmoorings we know, and the unmoorings we know we don't know. And then there are the unmoored unmoorings. Dr. Maddow gets that. --Donald Rumsfeld, poet. (@whaddyameanzeitgeistisnotavailable?)
  • "...I was a Flower of the mountain yes when I saw the book in the store where the Andalusian girls shop or shall I read the book yes and how she told me about the unmooring and I thought well as well she as an author and then I asked her with my eyes to ask again yes and then she asked me would I write a blurb to say yes my mountain flower and first I put my arms around her yes and drew her down to me so she could feel the book under my coat yes and her book was selling like mad and yes I said yes I will Yes." --Molly Bloom (@ShadyShrew)
  • Buy the book, take the ride... --Hunter S Thompson (David Christopher Roach)
  • This is the Chuck Norris of books! --Chuck Norris (@Jools64)

And my favorite, a marvel of concision:

  • Drift is Hell. -William Tecumseh Sherman (@js9w:)
