Once again

The mind boggles.

This is the kind of thing that scares me. They keep making all these blatant, ugly PR mistakes. They can't be this stupid, can they? I worry that they feel like they can do whatever they want because they have a complete lock somehow, whether it's a bin Laden October surprise, or rigged Diebold touchscreens...

Quick, run for cover - watch out for that cart going before that horse!

Seriously. I'm still boggling over this one.

The sheer hubris emanating from the White House these days...well, it boggles the mind.

Hmmm. I can't tell, from this article, if the problem is fear or that we're afraid of the wrong things. If the latter, then there's really no solution, except to shift our warlike propensities to whatever the author thinks proper.

Oops. Sorry, that last comment should go on the "Disturbing Reading" link above. This one is kind of interesting, though. I'm not entirely sure that he's wrong, though I also think that he's being a little premature. But then he took it on himself to crown Kerry's victory with a congratulatory call, inserting himself into the Democratic primaries as if they were the World Series or something. Condecension is something this administration does well, and the condescender-in-chief is leading the way.

I don't know that he's wrong, Jonathan, but he's certainly being amazingly premature as well as fueling paranoid fears of another, shall we say, problematic outcome.

As far as the "disturbing reading" link, I read that twice and I didn't understand what the writer wanted us to think. I was hoping some brainiac :) reading this blog might understand it better.
