You Are SO Not Thanked.

Atrios is too kind (and I’m a bit of a whiner). I didn’t actually tip him to the Andy Sullivan column, I just answered his Googly call to arms (or fingers, as the case may be). But now that I’m actually looking at said noxious column, I feel a bit of a rant coming on…

You’re welcome. And as I read this and other Iraqi blogs written by people who lived under a kind of terror that we in the West have no way to understand or truly empathize with, I feel a lump in my throat. I am so proud of the country I was born in and the country I have made my home. I have never been prouder to be an Anglo-American, to have done in our time what so many before us have done – to broaden the possibilities of liberty, to bring hope, to restrain the violent men and evil ideologies that are each generation’s responsibility. The men and women in our armed forces did the hardest work. They deserve our immeasurable thanks. But we all played our part. By facing down the evil, the cowardly and the simply misguided, we have done a great good.

Great. Fabulous. Sure. Whatever. That stuff I bolded? That is precisely what you and your Republican ilk have miserably failed to do in this country. You have, in fact, aggressively pursued the exact opposite. You have enabled and apologized for the violent men and evil ideologies that are destroying our country. You are the the evil, the cowardly, and the “simply misguided,” and you have done a great wrong that may not be righted for decades, if ever.

So fuck you very much.

Random Mostly Blue-Sky NYC Photoblogging

Yet more fun from NYC. I think I might be running out of steam. Maybe one or two more posts left.

Looking out from a very small coffeeshop.

If you look very closely (psst – you can click on these for a larger view), you can see the flowers in the window.

Mmm… Buildings… blue sky… shadows… stark geometrical shapes… I’m in Photo Heaven. Posted by Picasa

Quote Of The Day

Courtesy of… JOE KLEIN???

For what it’s worth, he just repeats it. He didn’t actually come up with it. By way of The All-Seeing Eye Of Froomkin:

“The media are wondering what ever happened to the Bushies’ political antennae,” a prominent Republican told me. “They don’t have antennae. They just have a transmitter — and the party is beginning to tune them out.”

That’s gotta leave a mark…
