via corrente, Stirling Newberry's eloquent post about the speech last night, a speech I did not watch. Go read the whole thing, as TPM might say.

"It is time for someone, someone with something to lose, come forward and state the obvious: we have, installed in our oval office, a man who is so unfit for the duties - by reason of a pathological dishonesty and complete disregard for the welfare of the citizens of this country - as to demand that we remove him, and his party, from power - and then use every law and organ of government to investigate the nakedly criminal underpinnings of that party....

We must face the facts, the cold, hard facts. We illegally invaded another nation, engaging in war crimes to do so, in that we lied to the UN as to the causes for war. We did so without pressing necessity to invade - or to lie at all, since our target was an individual who could have been legally indicted for war crimes by merely stretching forth our hand....

We did not invade because Saddam was a threat, but because he was not. We did not invade because we knew he had WMD, but because we knew he did not.

this kind of rhetoric is no not useful, so not getting us where we need to be...

Gore DID call a spade a spade last week, right? The following day's letters to the editor were hilarious. They seemed to all speak with one voice (hmmm, why is that..). Of 10 letters about Gore, 7 indicted him as insane -- clinically, commitably insane.

A great example of the Right's echo chamber or mighty wurlitzer as it is variously called.
