Not in the clamor of the crowded street, not in the shouts and plaudits of the throng, but in ourselves, are triumph and defeat.--Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
REDIRECT ALERT! (Scroll down past this mess if you're trying to read an archived post. Thanks. No, really, thanks.)
Due to my inability to control my temper and complacently accept continued silliness with not-quite-as-reliable-as-it-ought-to-be Blogger/Blogspot, your beloved Possumblog will now waddle across the Information Dirt Road and park its prehensile tail at http://possumblog.mu.nu.
This site will remain in place as a backup in case Munuvia gets hit by a bus or something, but I don't think they have as much trouble with this as some places do. ::cough::blogspot::cough:: So click here and adjust your links. I apologize for the inconvenience, but it's one of those things.

YEEEAAAARRRGGGHHHH! Part Deux
Gore calls on Rumsfeld, Rice, and Tenet to resignAnd the reason the fiery gentleman from Tennessee isn't running for President this go-round? Oh yeah, all of his fellow Democrats kept saying he was unelectable. I like the yelling part, though. Reminds me of that wacky alpha male Howard Dean.
In the end, putting aside all the obvious glue-sniffing going on, one is left to wonder about someone whose rhetoric is barely distinguishable from that of our enemies. Constructive criticism is one thing, and is a valuable thing--no one can make a case that decisions made by fallible humans could not have been better thought out or executed. But this attempt at trying to look bold and angry and tough and pugilistic isn't constructive, and isn't compelling to those of us who ask the question, "which man do our enemies fear most will win." I would feel much better if the twisted minds who see every American as an infidel worthy of death would at this moment be miserable with dread, knowing that whoever the hated American devils elect will allow them no rest, and allow them no quarter.
Oh sure, it may just be election-year politicking. But in trying to give hope to your partisans, let's not give equal hope to our enemies.
