  •  Good idea (4.00)
    Powerline (or LGF) links to a segment called "What's going right in Iraq" that's actually pretty good. I may start posting some of the items here -- both present and past -- so we can get a fuller picture of the Iraq situation and see where past "good" things have or haven't panned out.

    Anyway, with various issues, though especially the Iraq War and Iraqi progress, this would be a really great idea. The problem is that Kos would have to trust a rightie to not sabotage the page -- and trust his users if comments were allowed -- to let this happen, and vice versa. That might be difficult.

    •  We'd have to police our comments. (none)
      We'd have to be sure not to tolerate any comments that are just divisive or insulting.  To a certain degree, we already do.  But in the case of a freeper guest poster, things could get heated pretty quickly.  We just have to make sure that everyone understands that the point is not to "win" the argument.
      •  Not a pinata (none)
        I'm pretty sure we'd stay away from a Freeper, though. Like I said it'd have to be someone Kos trusted to some extent, so maybe a guy or gal from RedState.org or another rightie blog which is working with us on the FCC regulation legislation. I agree we'd have to sort of make it clear that we're not hauling in a scapegoat pinata to bash for the fun of it.

        •  Check out "Dean Nation" (none)
          ..run by a Kossite (is that the correct term for y'all?), and a Redstater posts on there.

          In case anyone's curious, I'm jadedmara on Redstate.org.
