Science for Republicans!

Jeebus, more victimology

We've already seen Ho Lieberman adopt other tactics we're used to from the Republicans--the WSJ OpEd page, the thugs, throwing out any charge in the hopes it will stick, bringing in college Republicans from out of state, the relentless lying--and now he's acting like a victim, too. Apparently, Lieberman can't manage a web site.

Almost at the Level of Vietnam

I didn't know this. The intresting quote for me:

Since 2000, about 40,000 troops from all branches of the military have deserted, the Pentagon says. More than half served in the Army. But the Army says numbers have decreased each year since the United States began its war on terror in Afghanistan.

How a Public Editor Should Sound

Rereading this, I suppose the Chicago Tribune's Timothy J. McNulty isn't saying anything all that much different from what the NYT and WaPo "public editors" do: this shit is hard, we piss people off. But McN manages to do it without the smarmy whining tone somehow. And he even provides some data to back up his argument:

A science report in The Washington Post two weeks ago noted that partisans in a conflict "don't just arrive at different conclusions; they see entirely different worlds." Read below the fold...
