Or at least don't blog when caffeinated and annoyed. XWL, are we still friends, post rant?
Update: XWL has graciously updated and clarified. I thank him for that, though I think he is mistaken as to the Afghanistan issue. I don't know where this idea comes from that the Democratic base does not like to blow things up real good. We too are children of Castle Wolfenstein, GoldenEye and Halo, (though Missile Command was always my favorite, back in the day. Well, that and Super DodgeBall. When you get down to it, largely the same game with different animations. But I digress...) I'd like to think that we would have managed to catch OBL in Tora Bora and put his head on the proverbial pike. Giving credit where it is due, aside from the above snafu, Afghanistan is the one Bush policy that can be viewed as largely succesful to my mind - the people seem to be for us about 7-1 (sorry, no link, read a poll to that effect somewhere yesterday.)
