I came across a couple of interesting articles during the morning blogsurf. At Lenin's Tomb, we come across the interesting argument that the Left should attempt to "harness the might of the American state." Lenin's Tomb has thus won a link on this site in appreciation of the bold presentation of a truly bizarre idea (Why would we support a war that is being used as a facade for neocon politicl machinations?) and its use of the term "supererogatory" (Is this really a word or merely something mis-uttered at a recent Bush news conference?) Lenin hopes for some "confluence" between the interests of "the imperialists" and "those suffering under autocracy." Confluence? I figure there's as much chance as the Mississipi and Nile intersecting. Needless to say, I can't see any reason to "tactically support the war." In spite of the lack of confluence between my views with those of Lenin--this seemingly perverse political doppelganger, I have provided a link to his sight...supererogatorily.
The other tasty morsel in this morning's blog-soup was the discussion of "special renditions" on Making Light.
