Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

Deep Thought

Are the Opening Ceremonies over yet?

Just got back from a seven hour trip from JFK, the last hour of which was in a monsoon.

Which used to be rare in Connecticut.

There's an old joke, "Everyone always talks about the weather, but no one does anything about it."

Unless of course, you count pumping greenhouse gasses into the atmosphere.

Someone (Chait?) said that Obama's missed opportunity in the first two years was tax reform.  It was global warming.

Because it's probably already too late.

UPDATED ADDITIONAL DEEP THOUGHT: Will Romney cause rioting in Israel/Palestine?  I'm guessing he will call Jerusalem the capitol of Israel.  That should be fun.
