"I hope it all gets investigated. My view is pretty simple on this. Joe Wilson and his bimbo wife Val Plame used the CIA for domestic political purposes, got caught doing it, and the mainstream media has been trying to provide them with cover ever since."* henley:
" But our country’s more successful political party plausibly believes that appealing to the country’s worst instincts is the key to maintaining power. To the extent they’re right, I want that government to have as little power and prestige as possible. The Bush Administration is uniquely awful, but it didn’t come out of nowhere, and what gave rise to it will persist."

"When I discuss the possibility of an American military strike on Iran with my European friends, they invariably point out that an armed confrontation does not make sense -- that it would be unlikely to yield any of the results that American policymakers do want, and that it would be highly likely to yield results that they do not. I tell them they cannot understand U.S. policy if they insist on passing options through that filter. The "making sense" filter was not applied over the past four years for Iraq, and it is unlikely to be applied in evaluating whether to attack Iran."
