Burke on Wishes, McCain

Don’t think I haven’t noticed my increasing level of anti-Bush stridency; I have. I apologize for that. Regardless of the outcome of the upcoming US presidential election, life (of some sort) will go on, and I should do a better job of remembering that.

Also, I got into it a bit in the comments this morning with principled conservative and valued lies.com co-author Craig; I feel icky about that. Apologies there, too.

Anyway, in spite of all this ickiness at my hyper-partisanship, I really want to link unto this pair of great pieces by Timothy Burke of Easily Distracted. I guess he’s a Bush-hater, too, but he seems to have a little more perspective than I currently can muster, so maybe his ranting will provide some degree of relief from the one-note stuff I’ve been dishing out.

First: Fishbones in my throat, in which the author visualizes the world as he would have it, rather than as it is. Second: Dear John, in which he tells an old flame that, sadly, it’s time to break it off.

    I looked at your exchange with Craig. Not much of a dust-up. No blood on the floor.
    Me, I’m cleaning my guns and trying to ignore the voices in the radiator.
    The toaster says they’re lying.

    How do you know which to trust?

  2. Craig Says:

    Did we have a nasty exchange that I don’t know about?

    Then again, my memory isn’t what it use to be!

    I don’t know; it just bugs me when I disagree with you, because I believe you’re sincere, and informed, so I can’t just attribute the disagreement to your being intentionally obnoxious, or ignorant. The interaction wasn’t all that nasty, just characterized by persistent disagreement.
