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.

I noted below that Drudge's quote of Clark, like almost all the rest of his Kerry sex smear, seems to be inacurrate. The Howler has the details of the statement that I noted having seen, which was on Fox News Sunday:
CONNOLLY: You know, what, though? That?s not accurate. That?s not accurate. That?s the way that Drudge reported that supposed off-the-record conversation. But I?ve spoken to reporters who were there, and that?s not even what General Clark accused. It was something far more peripheral, and it was pinned to a tabloid.
This statement, however, comes from Ceci Connolly, a 'journalist' who has accomplished the rare distinction of having not much more credibility than Drudge. A further and much more reliable confirmation comes from Ryan Lizza at TNR.
