Down The Memory Crater

Two years ago, as the presidential election year kicked off, Andrew Sullivan wrote:

For the Clintonites, 9/11 didn’t really happen. Everything the Bush administration has tried to do in foreign policy is perverse, neocon imperialism – despite the fact that Bush ran as less interventionist than Al Gore in 2000. It doesn’t seem to have occurred to them that this administration’s hard line against terror-sponsoring regimes and those developing WMDs was not some ideological plot – but a reaction to events.

Van Wallach of Kesher Talk writes that the Borders chain seems to be doing a pretty good job of draining those memories from their collective minds as well.

Although to be fair, Van notes that the stores did have a couple of books, including at least one “on a top shelf, where I could barely reach it”.

I’m sure it’s purely coincidental synchronicity, but there could be a rather unwise association for Borders to make with that location.
