Annals of the New Reactionaries

Flying over the country today on JetBlue, I got to watch more than my share of daytime TV, including a couple of reasonably decent National Geographic docs, endless Michael Jackson blather, and Arianna Huffington attacking Hillary Clinton at the TBA Conference because Hillary would not set a date certain for leaving Iraq (not wanting to give the “insurgents” such information). The audience broke into wild applause for this idiotic statement advocating a policy which would only lead to the victory of fascism. Does Arianna even understand the implications of what she says? Does she care what this would mean to the Iraqi people? I doubt it.
