Here's John Kerry's comment on the kid who got Tasered the other day for heckling His Wooditude:
I was not aware that a taser was used until after I left the building.... I hope that neither the student nor any of the police were injured.
How a pack of cops might have gotten injured while Tasering a solitary undergraduate does not clearly appear, nor is it obvious what reason, if any, Kerry had to fear such an eventuality. (Perhaps Kerry's assessment of the intelligence and competence of the average cop is secretly rather close to my own.) Somehow this carefully calibrated and utterly gratutious split-the-difference approach seems thoroughly iconic.

You know the old joke -- a reactionary believes that women are inferior to men. A radical thinks that women are equal to men. A liberal thinks the truth lies somewhere in between.

Note also that comments with three or more links may be held for "moderation" -- a strange term to apply to the ghost in this blog's machine. Seems to be a hard-coded limitation of the blog software, unfortunately.
