The Other Reason Today is Worth Reflection

Remember, while the bastards rule
And treat us like we're utter fools:
We're on your heels, best mind your feet
"Only Connect" makes for sweet meat

Immortal Words of Something Worth Dying For

Al Gore again refuses to make a Sherman statement

AP via Political Wire:

SYDNEY, Australia -- "I haven't completely ruled out running for president again in the future but I don't expect to," [Al] Gore said before the Sunday night premiere of "An Inconvenient Truth."

Thank the God of Your Choice.

For Mouse Slayers

You all remember that utterly hot babe Persephone in Matrix 2? After she finds out her cyber hubby is getting head in the bathroom, from some human slime he sent a cake to while playing loyal host in another corner of the dining establishment? Anway, Persephone totally rocks his world later on in the film, noting the lipstick on his, erm, person. She unleashes armed rebels in his midst, and saunters away in that period's finest white dress. To his protestations that "it was only a game," she counters: "So's this. Have fun."

Snappy, snazzy, so fine!

General JC Christian found a way to help ABC/C U N Hell/Disney with their opening credits for their factesque production "Path to 9/11." After just one viewing of the General's work I felt really Mannixish. Or Manish. Or Amish.

Great. I'll be interested to see one scene, then:

The one where Bush reads the memo, "Bin Laden Determined to Strike in US," and then hands it back to his briefer, saying "You've covered your ass." Read below the fold...

Three Posts to Ponder

Waldman:

If there's one thing Republicans have understood and Democrats haven't, it is that politics is not about issues. Politics is about identity. The candidates and parties that win are not those aligning their positions most precisely with a majority of the electorate. The winners are those who form a positive image in the public mind of who they are (and a negative image of who their opponents are). Issues are a vehicle to create that identity, one that combines with symbolism and narrative to shape what the public thinks about when they think about Democrats and Republicans.

The Devil is in the Details

I've been working and travelling and whatnot a lot lately, so maybe I missed the detailed discussion about this. Breaking my own rule, the WaPo piece has just enough details to be very disturbing:
