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.

The Village Voice (link from Filibuster) has some ideas for negative ads to use against Bush. My own dream negative ad would be to show the rescue workers at Ground Zero and talk about the White House ordering the EPA to lie about the dangers theyh were being exposed to. Cut to the Saudi royals and Bin Laden relatives who were flown out of the countryh after 9/11 when our airspace was closed to everyone except our enemies. If done right, an ad juxtaposing Bush's disregard for the American heroes at Ground Zero with his solicitude for the Bin Laden clan would be nasty, fair, and devastating. (The Voice does actually suggest an ad using the Saudi flights, but I still think mine is better.)
