Not much to write
I'm just expecting pain and suffering in Febuary.
I have no idea what's in the news, beyond a brief notice that the Democrats are doing their best to sabotage the war, near as I can tell.
I read somewhere a suggestion that the only way for the Democrats to get onboard for the War on Terror would be for them to win the whole enchilada in 2008, House and Senate and White House, and then another 9/11-magnitude event to occur. Personally, I think they would rationalize it away, ignore it, or simply curl into the fetal position. Probably smoke a lot of weed and write policy papers while high, denouncing 'negative vibes.' There aren't a dozen politicians at the national level in the Democratic Party with enough of a grip on the way the world really works to deal with a no-kidding war with people who actually hate them.
