Josh Marshall points out why its so gosh darn hard to diagree with NeoCons, and sheds some light on the invidious tendency to call naysayers bigots.

Dean Screws Up Again

No surprise here. This man cannot seem to do enough to make me dislike him. First he makes stupid statements about southern mores, and then he goes after the silver tongued sinner, Bill Clinton and his Democratic Leadership Counsel. This was back in December..

The more he opens his big mouth, the more he makes it clear that he can only win in the maple syrup belt. The man does not know the meaning of TACT.

What I really wanted to write about was Kerry's hair, but I don't have time..

Apologies for the long hiatus. I've been wandering about the country, visiting long-neglected friends, entering manifold bookstores, fixing still more technical difficulties with the thesis the rumors of whose demise have been greatly exaggerated, cursing my thesis advisor (may she be shut up in an anchoress's cell, may her servants flee due to plague, and may her priest-confessor chide her for inadequate self-flagellation) and writing run-on sentences.

I have begged the honorary sister Erica, in whose Boston abode I now shiver (hey, I could be in California right now...), to share her wisdom with us. She informs me that she possesses no wisdom, and instead enigmatically eats Canadian chocolate. I am sure the truth is contained somewhere in the Canadian chocolate, but if Erica told us, she would be betraying the secret.

On the other hand, says Erica, any secrets contained in any sort of chocolate are unbetrayable. (Her word, not mine. If you figure out what "unbetrayable" means, please inform me.)

Just watched the Nova exclusive on the Spirit's arrival on Mars. Wow. So. So. Cool. Can't wait till Tuesday, when we get to see the the first color footage since Pathfinder.
