One of These Things Is Not Like the Other
David Broder in today's Washington Post: "What has happened, I think, is that the war on terrorism has so overshadowed everything else in the news from Washington that other subjects have virtually disappeared."
The "other subjects" so important to Broder are the silly education reform law recently signed by President Bush, campaign finance reform, and state budget problems.
The education law won't accomplish anything, Americans have never considered CFR important (and rightly so), and state budgets will be quickly fixed by the improving economy. So, yeah, we're still fucking "fixated" on the damn war that's blowing up our financial centers.
The question isn't why Red America thinks the war is so important, the question is how David Broder can think his little nip'n'tuck policy wonk issues are.
