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.

Is it the Apocalypse?
Atrios has now not posted for over 24 hours, in fact about 33.5 and counting. While there is no confirmation at this time that the world is ending, nothing short of a major global disaster such as giant comets striking the Earth or Bush stealing another election is known to cause such unprecedented behavior.
Update: Apparently it was Blogger, not Atrios, that was behaving oddly. When I wrote the above, I had just visited the site and found no posts since yesterday morning; I just looked at the site again and counted 12 posts dated between what had previously shown as the most recent and when I wrote, then stopped counting with a few left.
