Random commentary and senseless acts of blogging.
The first Republican president once said, "While the people retain their virtue and their vigilance, no administration by any extreme of wickedness or folly can seriously injure the government in the short space of four years." If Mr. Lincoln could see what's happened in these last three-and-a-half years, he might hedge a little on that statement.

Mo Bitchier Blues
Most of my readers probably already read the popular Eschaton blog, but some may have missed this gem in the comments section to a recent Atrios post, where one Jeffrey Kramer, who doesn't seem to have a blog but clearly should, hits the bull's eye on feeble columnist Maureen Dowd:
And even that wouldn't be so bad if Dowd could actually MAKE it amusing: but here we have a supposedly prime time performer who thinks she's opening the floodgates of mirth with the killer line "Oedipus, Schmoedipus." If Maureen Dowd earned a Pulitzer with this kind of commentary, then Andrew Northrup is entitled to at least two Nobel Prizes, and Dave Barry deserves to have human sacrifices performed in his honor. Preferably beginning with Maureen Dowd.
