Given my long absence it would be natural to conclude that I've disappeared for good, possibly from the very face of the earth, but IT WOULD BE WRONG; I am, in fact, back in the previously-flown coop and will probably start posting again soon. There's just such a smorgasbord of stupidity out there that it's hard to know where to start.
If you're hankering for something of substance, read John Halle's response to Robert Parry's hauntingly familiar argument about why you should vote for Democrats, and how if you don't, every bad thing that's ever happened is your personal responsibility. Thrill at the fanciful flights of logic as Parry opines that you may have literally "doomed the future" through your desire to "feel morally pure." And when you've finished reading, repent your heresy and hand your vote back to the party that rightfully owns it. Robert Parry commands you!
