Here's a good piece on current thoughts on American Empire.
And here's another taking a more historical view of the issue.

I kind of want to see Gigli now. It's looking historically bad.
Say it with me: Impeach Bush. And Cheney too.

Allow me to elaborate: You can only ask the men and women of our armed forces to put their lives at risk to protect our lives. Any other reason is just bullshit.

The Washington Post has a good piece on Howard Dean. Interesting stuff. I'm still holding out hope that a better choice will emerge, but I may old my nose and vote for Dean, you know, for America.

I watched the Red Sox play the Orioles in Camden Yards this weekend. The Sox were blown out, but Nomah hit a homah, so that was nice. More to my point, it's a great park. It's clean, has good food, has enough room, has a few nice subtle touches, and looks great. And that's why I no longer want them to build a new stadium for the Red Sox. I've supported the pro-new Fenway people for a while now. Not the people who say the city should pay for something like half of it, but definitely the idea of a new, first-class stadium appealled to me a lot. But really, all of those nice amenities you get at a new ballpark are secondary. What matters is the baseball experience and the sense of history that a new stadium just can't deliver like Fenway Park does. Renovating Fenway is definitely a good idea, and finding ways to add seating is necessary, but we'll lose something great if we lose Fenway itself.

I think the scariest part of this list of Bushmen lies is the last one. I used to say that Al Gore was the only candiate the Democrats could have run in 2000 who was worse than Bush. I guess the truth is that Bush is the only person the Republicans could have run who was worse than Algore.
