    same set will likely buy the notion that "it was the best that our hero could have done."

    Comfort ye, my people, in that idiot phrase that anaesthetizes so many of us to the increasingly gluttonous removal of our vital organs and life blood, that "politics is the art of the possible." Makes us all sound so wise, and in-the-loop, and at-the-table. Nope, what you folks refer to as "politics" is really just the sham we buy as "representative democracy." And mastering the lingo and parsing the polls is not the same as actually having any chance of a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

    How many of us progressives actually feel like we are much more than "javelin-catchers" in the Imperial Olympics?
