The New York Times > Opinion > Editorial: Making Things Worse

Hm. See, you'd think the Republicans would have it figured out by now that you can't wage war against nouns without it backfiring. War against Drugs. War against Terror. What's next? War against Hummus? War against Shag Carpeting?

Although, in a case like this it is very easy to put on your tinfoil hat and go into full Fox Mulder mode, saying that it was never about actually eliminating terror, but perpetuating it and the measures citizens are willing to tolerate in fighting it. It's times like these when one who has written at length on the topic of dystopias has trouble seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.

In other news . . . did Jesse Ventura join the Simbionese Liberation Army?
