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.

Probably spurred by tonight's meeting, the meetup totals for Wesley Clark have risen to 12,544, blowing past Kucinich into a (distant) second behind Howard Dean, a solid 14% above the numbers for John Kerry and far ahead of the meetups for other candidates. The next moxt popular presidential 'candidate' in meetup is Al Gore, whom I would love to see drafted but is clearly not a candidate at all. Other declared candidates are trailing badly in the Meetup Primary; Joe Lieberman brings up the rear with a pathetic 293. I don't think he's signed up anyone except his staff and the writers for The New Republic. Unlike some other lib bloggers, I feel no deep urge to see Lieberman humiliated, but I think he will be.
There's still time to sign up and attend the Clark meetup for your area.
