As ever

What Charles Pierce says about the various Bush era war criminals and the enabling press -- almost all of whom are still treated like "the serious people":

Shut up, all of you. Go away. You are complicit in one way or another in a giant crime containing many great crimes. Atone in secret. Wash the blood off your hands in private. Because there were people who got it right. Anthony Zinni. David Shiseki. Hans Blix. Mohamed ElBaradei. The McClatchy Washington bureau guys. Dozens of liberal academics who got called fifth-columnists and worse. Professional military men whose careers suffered as a result. Hundreds of thousands of people in the streets around the world. The governments of Canada and France. Those people, I will listen to this week. Go to hell, the rest of you, and go there in silence and in shame.

"Shame" is no longer an operative word in this country.

Barack Hussein Obama, state senator from Illinois.... he got it right from the beginning. The first thing I noticed about him was his open skepticism about Iraq.

history is going to look on this with a very very jaundiced eye, the way we look upon the early 20th century and the vietnam era... but this time, the documentation will include the electronic medium, and it will not be a pretty thing to be able to cover it up.

wonder what Mencken would say?
why can't we learn?
