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.

Droning On And On

Every once and awhile, Tbogg tones down the snark and does some analysis - which is admittedly snarky.

Today he takes aim and the mindlessness of the single issue voter, in this case the Libertarians so upset with drone strikes in Pakistan that they would vote for a guy who would destroy America's full faith and credit in order to make a point about fiscal austerity.

Drones are problematic.  So is any solution to a bunch of medievalists who are willing to kill people at any time and any place.

Any criticisms of drones should end with a better (and realistic) plan to replace them.

I'll wait....
