Seriousness

29 Dec

I don’t mean to turn this into a political blog, as I don’t have time to read political blogs and follow the news adequately let alone write much that adds anything to the conversation. Still, I thought I’d start collecting particularly apt quotes here, as storing them somewhere on my hard drive is just another way to lose them. Here’s Joshua Marshall today, commenting on the execution:

The Iraq War has been many things, but for its prime promoters and cheerleaders and now-dwindling body of defenders, the war and all its ideological and literary trappings have always been an exercise in moral-historical dress-up for a crew of folks whose times aren’t grand enough to live up to their own self-regard [but] whose imaginations are great enough to make up the difference.
