TUAW has some interesting tricks for customizing the iPhone interface. I should start hacking. I’m a little concerned about jail-breaking my phone ’cause I don’t want Apple to lock it up with their next update.

Something to think about.

Clinton/Bush Derangement Syndrome November 7, 2007

Rick Moran at Right Wing Nuthouse (great title!) absolutely eviscerates the loons on both the Left and the Right for their over-the-top conspiracy theories wrt the Clintons and Dubya.  I’ve often said that the biggest mistake the Republicans made during the Clinton years was to push for impeachment.  I believed it then, when I reluctantly sympathized with Clinton, even though I didn’t believe him (yes, possible cognitive dissonance approaching!); I believe it now, when I look back on all of the obvious mistakes he made as President.

Had the Republicans merely asked for a public censure, I think the Democrats would have happily accepted that, and the public would have been satisfied.  As it is, getting Clinton impeached, and the public spectacle of a completely worthless trial, really pissed a lot of the Left off.  And they have nothing if not long, selective, memories.  Once Bush was elected (‘selected’ as they would put it), the Far Left members of the Democrat Party had their sites set.  And it’s been downhill ever since.  I’ve moved away from the Democrat Party mostly because the loons have so much power.  But I lay a lot of the blame for that at the Republicans’ feet.  They dug their own grave with the impeachment.  Now we’re all suffering as a result.

Flopping Aces nails it.  In the comments, he actually points out something I’d heard before:  We actually had other assets inside Saddam’s Inner Circle.  And we were getting pretty nasty intel from ‘him’ starting right around September ’02.  Nukes?  Nope, but definitely a Nuke Program.  Chemical Weapons?  Yep.  Bio-Weapons?  Not in any great quantity.

Will people ever accept the fact that Bush was actually acting in good faith, based upon the evidence he was being given by the Intel community?  Doubtful.  It’s just too easy to spout outdated memes.  Memes kept alive by the MSM, desperate to see Hillary in the White House, and Democrats in control in both Houses.  Whether or not they should be is a separate question.  But the MSM’s blatant shilling for them is disgusting.
