"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things: the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks nothing worth a war, is worse." --John Stuart Mill (1806 - 1873)

Confirming Prejudices

I watched Alexandra Pelosi's primary-campaign documentary Diary of a Political Tourist on HBO the other night. After an up-close (literally, she puts the camera in peoples' faces) look at the Dems who ran for the nomination, my impressions are:

Kerry--a stiff prevaricator
Gephardt--a decent man
Lieberman--a happy warrior
Graham--a complete loon
Edwards--a preening fop
Dean--a cocky jerk

In short, it didn't change my opinions of any of them.
