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.
