    as a suicide pact.

    These things remind me of Edith Hailton's riff on the Norse Gods in her syrupy "Mythology" text we had to read in 9th grade English.  The fought on against the Giants even though they knew they were fated to lose.  Even Hamilton who practically orgasmed at her writing desk over Zeus' lusts and Hector's beauty was like "Say what?" when she got around to the Norse at the end of that tedious tome.  

    Like the bumpesticker that says  "They'll take my guns when they pry them from my cold dead fingers," the reality setting in is even more insulting - they wn't even bother doing that.  The final indgnity for the John Wayne wanabes is not so much their defeat as their obsolescence.

    The modern conservative is engaged in one of man's oldest exercises in moral philosophy; that is, the search for a superior moral justification for selfishness. -- John Kenneth Galbraith
