It's easy to think clearly when you assume the worst in politics and then ignore the whole beast. So I follow economics instead of policy, seeing that policy is lunacy. I'm working on not subjecting myself to the ungodly torture that is cognition of the word 'responsibility' coming out of the piehole of the man responsible for an imminent multi-trillion dollar deficit. I'm merely awaiting a modern reincarnation of David Stockman.
In the meantime, there is some enthusiasm in finding Martin Peretz coming to his senses over his latent recognition that Obama is quite content to be appointing Saudi tools as diplomats. Which is to say that there's the distinct probability that so-called thinkers on security in the Obama Administration are indeed surrender monkeys with 'America Last' tatooed on their pudgy asses.
