Jon Huntsman is raising eyebrows this week for comparing America’s Grand Old Party to the Communist Party during remarks at a New York City event.
The former Utah governor was complaining about being disinvited to a major Republican fundraising event during his presidential bid, apparently because Huntsman had made statements supporting the idea of a third party candidate in 2012′s presidential race.
“This is what they do in China on party matters if you talk off script,” said Huntsman, speaking at the 92nd Street Y.
As the former ambassador to China under President Obama, Huntsman should know. He also said that his fellow Republicans were often “wrong-headed” in their policy approaches toward China.
Along with an apparent disinterest in further endorsing assumed nominee Mitt Romney, or serving as a surrogate for his former rival in 2012, Huntsman may find himself receiving even fewer invites to Republican events. Dear Jon: Maybe it’s time to stop talking about a third party and start one yourself.

From the Poetry Center Archive: David Grossman March 23, 2008.
See him tonight, October 11, 2010, with Paul Auster at the 92nd Street Y: http://bit.ly/cpVAnH
In March of 2008, as part of the Poetry Center’s Festival of Hebrew Literature, David Grossman appeared at 92Y for an interview with Adam Rovner. The conversation took place on a Sunday morning. That night, in Israel, Mr. Grossman’s new novel—Isha Borachat Mi-besorah—was published. Tonight, he returns to New York to read from the novel’s translation—To the End of the Land.
Today’s featured recording is an excerpt from that 2008 conversation, in which Mr. Grossman discusses To the End of the Land.
About the novel, Paul Auster—who will introduce and then interview Mr. Grossman at tonight’s reading—has said: “Flaubert created his Emma, Tolstoy made his Anna, and now we have Grossman’s Ora—as fully alive, as fully embodied as any character in recent fiction.” During the 2008 conversation, Mr. Grossman talked about “writing women”:
When I write about a woman, I do not think that I am writing about woman as a concept or as a state of mind or a state of body. I just tune myself totally—or as much as I can—to this character that I’m writing about, and I try to be absorbed by her to the utmost. I don’t know if something she does is feminine or masculine, I just don’t know it. I just know that for this specific character this is the right way to act. It is a very intuitive decision, the choices I make while I’m writing. I think that most of the women I write about are women I appreciate—unlike the men. The men I write about—usually I do not really appreciate them. The women I write about are stronger, deeper, more complex characters. They are less afraid of being in tight contact with reality, with their inner reality. Why is it like that? I have no idea. It has something to do with the fact that I feel that I myself was very much created or shaped—brought up—by women, enhanced more by women than by men. [In To the End of the Land], the main character is a woman, and she is the engine behind the whole book, and she motivates the men. Probably this is how I look at the world . . .

Today’s video features “Maps,” an early poem by the evening’s second reader, Tomasz Różycki, who visited the Unterberg Poetry Center on March 28 for The Tenth Muse—an evening of readings by emerging voices curated by Adam Zagajewski.
Read in both Polish and English (with translator Mila Rosenthal reading her translation). Also read is an excerpt from Twelve Stations, a series of poems about Różycki’s hometown of Opole—”heroic city, thrice awarded the Silesian Order of Brilliance / and twice the Medal of the City of a Hundred Banks and One Bookstore!”—read by Różycki and a second translator, Bill Johnston.
A “vital new poet has emerged from the Polish language,” Zagajewski said of Różycki. His “poetry is serious, a private response to the historic moment.
