This blog used to be about politics. Not so much anymore as I have worked through my fascination with that subject. It now seems appropriate that with a new president and the end of the Bush nightmare that I move on to new subjects that are more in line with my current interests. I may still occasionally express an opinion about political matters but for the most part I will be commenting on music, photography and personal observations. Thank you for reading.

"Heh. And for those who email saying 'what about Falwell on the right,' well, it's worth remembering that the term 'idiotarian' was coined with Falwell in mind. It's just that the right has done a better job of muzzling and marginalizing its idiots, while the Left has embraced them. And if the 'backlash' theory set out above is true, it will only get worse, which is bad for the Left, and bad for America."

Sigh, I guess we all believe what we want to believe. I look out at the media landscape and all I seem to see are frothing right wingers, Glenn Reynolds sees a sea of left wing idiots.

But to say that the right has done a better job of muzzling its idiots?


I always just assume that everyone has a right to express their opinions and that there is no organized left or right which represents me. I'd like to think that people are smart enough to know that other people don't speak for me. I have no obligation to muzzle people that I either agree or disagree with.

But I suppose if you get enough hits you start to think that you speak for a movement and that the world consists of people that represents large blocks of opinion. Maybe Reynolds fancies himself one of those people, and I suppose there are others that think he's a an idiot and deserves to be "muzzled".

Like I said before... interesting.

Today we'll be hearing lots of crowing about how the anti-war people were wrong and how the elections in Iraq will justify the lying, the torture, and the general lack of planning involved in this invasion.

Maybe that's true. Maybe its ok to sacrifice process -- the means, in order to reach a desired goal -- the ends?

So we can overlook the rhetoric tying the invasion of Iraq with the tragedy of 9-11, the implications that terrorists were plotting with Saddam to inflict nuclear terror on American people, the utterly false presentation to the United Nations, and the smearing of the inspectors who were telling the truth about the weapons, if in the end we get a result that most people find desirable?

Democracy - which is a process.

My head hurts.
