One of Josh Marshall's co-bloggers, TPM reader DK, observes Israel's ignominious retreat in Lebanon and points out
Holy shit. I just realized that George W. Bush combines the worst of Richard M. Nixon and Jimmy Carter all in one spectacularly incompetent and venal package. Amazing.

Worried about Lebanon? Relax. Get your war on!

Sitting in an airport a few minutes ago, as we watched the insanity unfold in Lebanon courtesy of CNN, I was shocked to hear a deep thinker next to us proclaim: “This is the end times. It’s unfolding exactly as the Book of Revelation says it will.”
Back here on Planet Earth, I prefer to think that a whole bunch of crazy people with horrifying weapons are listening to voices in their head and acting in a completely crazy way.
Boy, are they going to be shocked when the Rapture comes and the souls are taken up to Heaven and they’re left behind here, standing on the rubble.
The collective “Oh shit” should be amusing.

Thanks to Roy Edroso, I now understand Jonah Goldberg's brain:
Arthur Silber reflects on The Impossibility of Discussing Anything at All these days. As is usually the case with Arthur, it’s a long essay, filled with enormously important insights and thoroughly depressing. We are, as Arthur correctly notes, “beoming the Stupidest Country on Earth.” Our so-called political discourse now consists of people trying to yell louder and smear more viciously so that voices of dissent will just shut the fuck up.
You really should, as they say, read the whole thing. But if you can’t or won’t, then at least read the ending, which I reprint here as a public service:
If I said “Amen,” it would be thoroughly ironic. But you’d have to read the whole thing to understand why.
