'Sick...to...death...of...current...politics': Wave Maker
summarizes his views on a number of issues so he doesn't have to keep repeating them each time a new angle or nuance pops up. ... Though I don't agree with many of his summary points, I'm also tired of the chattering classes' endless rehashing of issues, jumping on wayward words to prove the nefarious nature of an opponent's argument, debunking lies about lies about lies, etc. etc. So in the spirit of Wave Maker's summaries, here are mine so I don't have to repeat myself:
1. The War in Iraq: Reluctantly supported it, largely because of WMD argument. No WMD found. Support falls. Overrated Bush team does indeed 'botch' occupation. But must remain firm in Iraq or basket-case nation becomes terrorist factory.
2. Torture: bad. There's been torture. Must stop. But no need to pound the issue into the ground.
3. Mitt should give up White House ambition. Not going to win. Still has chance to be great governor here. Must block Legislature's penchant for spending taxpayer money
on things like court clerk payraises
4. Josh Beckett deal
begs question: Why acquire injury prone star pitcher when Sox could have kept injury prone star pitcher (i.e. Pedro)?
5. Theogate: Don't get me started.
