The Selective Nature of Memory in Politics

I'm tired so I'm going to try to remember to whip this into shape later.

Elaine Supkis has a story on the gene for forgetting here:

And Kevin Drum has a story asking why the media seem to be ignoring the prewar memo which proves Bush was lieing for six weeks in the lead up to war. Kevin thinks it has something to do with the media being jaded. My first thought is that the media usually will go at least three sides around robin hood's barn to avoid pointing out that Bush is a liar, but it occurs to me there may be a connection between the two stories.herehere

John Cole: Idiot, or Moron?


I know John Cole has to troll Democrats every day to maintain his readership, but it offends me that he can't put any thought into it. "At what point did the Democrats turn into xenophobic chicken littleā€™s?" An obvious and stupid lie is not a good way to keep up the pretense of being principled.

Of course there is another possibility, could it be that John is just so incredibly stupid that he actually bought the Republican spin on the Dubai ports deal. Maybe thats why he's switching party, he thinks he can become a Democrat while remaining a racist?

Grand Moff Texan rocking out on Digby:


We seem to have been saddled with a uniquely inferior generation, people either too dumb to think for themselves, too cowardly to stand up for themselves, or so feral they only think of themselves.

Some of them wear ties and live in DC. This does not mean they have anything useful to say ... about anything.

Day in and day out I am shocked at what passes for analysis in this country. It is beneath the contempt of anyone who thinks for a living. These fools would need help crossing the street, yet there they are: running a country.


If you fell for the Bush administration line, you're over. Done. Through. The first reponse to anything you say should be "you were an idiot then and you're probably an idiot now, so shut your fucking hole." But trust this generation of useless people to insist that having been wrong is the standard for seriousness in policy debates. They stuck a bow-tie on failure and called it respectability. Excuse me while I set it on fire.

Their content is a waste of time and it only gets air time because it's useful to the failed "leaders" themselves as part of a rearguard action, covering their retreat.

Attack, attack, attack. The cowards show us their back. These are the times when hesitations turn into routs. Pile the bodies high and let the smoke be seen for miles. For ages they should find bones on this spot.
