Welcome, everyone, to the most intense nightly read anywhere on the ‘sphere… The BitsBlog Nightly Ramble SITYS #7216:Fox News, yesterday: Former Vice President Dick Cheney said Wednesday that the Bush administration had developed a new strategy on the war in Afghanistan before leaving office — a strategy that he said “bears a striking resemblance” to […]

So Jeremiah Wright is now saying he’s been subject to a public crucifixion. I suppose it’s no shock that we all create God in our own image, but it’s one of the few tines I’ve ever heard of Christ being favorably compared to a racist loudmouthed loser like Wright. I’d like to suggest that Wright […]

Dan Drezner grew a bit, apparently, over the weekend. He’s still got a long way to go, in this, but the progress is notable. Remember when I said earlier this week that, “Glenn Greenwald might be a good blogger/collumnist, but he’s not that great at social science”? I apologize — I was clearly in error. […]

Drezner: Another day, another online article. The topic of my latest Newsweek column is whether the West — i.e., American and Europe — can still act as the global policy leader. I’m not optimistic: America and Europe face political, economic and demographic challenges to their longstanding primacy. This is a delicate moment for a power […]

Dan Drezner, who occasionally has been known to make a good point, makes one here: Why does a man who received 0.38% of the vote in the last election merit valuable minutes on Meet The Press, not to mention hours of speculation about his candidacy and its effects on the 2008 campaign? Will Tim Russert […]

Memo to the Paulbots: If 9/11 was an inside job, you’d not be alive to talk about it today. Think about all of what the hijackers had to do that day to accomplish what they did. You really think your elimination is such a challenge to people who could pull all that off? And yes, […]

Daniel W. Drezner asks,  “Should celebrities set the global agenda?” Rosie O’Donnell, winner of Barbra Streisand IQ Award for Celebrity Vacuity, via New York Post, “I just want to say something: 655,000 Iraqi civilians are dead. Who are the terrorists? . . . If you were in Iraq and the other country, the United States, […]

An interesting note from Glenn today. He’s apparently come to the very same conclusion I came to years ago: DO NOT TRUST CONTENT FROM ANDREW SULLIVAN: I can’t go around answering all of Andrew Sullivan’s misrepresentations, but it’s telling that he can’t seem to criticize me without misrepresenting what I’ve said. In this post he […]

OK a few notes left over from tonight…. Mind you, these are in no particular order.  It’s too fricking late to be that organized. No, Adkins, traffic was never a problem.  I should tell you that it did manage to drive traffic to the site; I’ve had smaller Instalanches… (Thanks again, everyone!) and I anticipate […]
