PoliBlog: A Rough Draft of my Thoughts

  1. Nope, Steven’s not worried about Clark. Nossir. Clark ain’t happening, nothing to see here, folks.

    That’s why Steven keeps posting GOP blastfaxes from the likes of George Will.

    Clue to Steven: the reason why the GOP attacks people like Kerry, Dean, and Clark is because they present a political threat to Karl Rove–George Bush. They’re not expending efforts to attack a Dennis Kucinich or an Al Sharpton or even a Dick Gephardt—because they know these guys haven’t a shot.

    George Will and his proxy, Steven, attempt to contrast Clark with Eisenhower. It’s a fool’s errand. Fighting WWII is vastly different from fighting today’s asymmetrical conflicts; using Eisenhower-era tactics on the conflicts facing the US today and in the future will not work.

    Yet, Steven pretends this is the case and demonstrates–once more–his lack of knowledge of all things military. Simply, the nature of warfare is much different today than it was in WWII when all that was required was being able to support an overwhelming amount of projected force without any concern for the aftermath or countervalues.

    That’s not the reality of today’s world; Will knows better, Steven should.

  2. As usual, you fail to address the substance of the discussion, and choose rather to rant in a semi-random fashio.

    And what is the wolrd do differing tactics in WWII v. Serbia have to do with gaining the nomination of a major political party?

    Were I grading this an essay, I would have to say “Does not conform to assignment.”

    I normally don’t give students the chance to re-do work, but I will be gracious in this case.

    Care to try again?
