officially Fucking Stupid

* twas Ron's birthday. happy bday mate.

* i think i just heard gwen ifill on lehrer say that there's no civil war because weekly attacks have fallen 16% since August 2.

* taranto (WSJ) via gilliard:
"It looks as though Lieberman is in the race to stay--but there is an answer to the Democrats' quandary. For the good of the party, Lamont could throw his support to Lieberman. This would leave the incumbent running essentially unopposed, neutralizing the "flying wedge" and allowing the Democrats to concentrate on beating Republicans.

Lamont could declare that he made his point by winning the primary, but his own ambitions are less important than the party. He could then redeploy, going on the road with Lieberman, campaigning for Democratic House challengers in Connecticut and for Democratic Senate candidates elsewhere. Rather than stay in a race he is likely to lose, Lamont could prove he understands his own dictum: " 'Stay the course' is not a winning strategy.""
jeebus. that's officially Fucking Stupid.

Attacks down, death toll up. Yup, that's progress, alright.

For the good of the party, Lamont could throw his support to Lieberman... Lamont could prove he understands his own dictum: "'Stay the course' is not a winning strategy."

L.M.A.O.

the 'funny' thing about ifill's comment was that she was just reaching back a couple of weeks - its like saying that global warming doesnt exist becuase it was sunny last week, and now its cold. (as well as the fact that one particular metric is meaningless, as you note)

maybe i heard her wrong - but it sounded completely fucking stupid the moment the words fell outta her mouth.

and yep - taranto's post oughtta be engraved in stone at wingnut college
