Open Thread

According to Scott Horton, Joe Klein writes about how deeply damaged our country is from diving into the Bush (and neo-conn) policies. Glad he can see it now, because here is Mr. Klein in 2006 demonstrating why he thought the wimpy Democrats would never be as cool as the macho Bush. As Kevin said this week, even though most people now think the wars we are entangled in were not good for us, come another period of "make my day" postering and we'll see people like Joe Klein, Tom Friedman and Bill Keller cheering the drive to war. It's a sad affair for humans that so many people need war to make themselves feel powerful.
