I want to commend to your attention what I think is a fairly civil reasonable exchange of posts from QandO and Oliver Willis.
In the opening post Dale Franks asks Oliver Willis (and people like Oliver Willis) to flesh out their plans for Iraq now. Not to rehash old grievances—a day forward plan.
And Oliver responds. In a reasonable, thoughtful way.
I commend both posts to your attention.
This is just exactly the sort of dialogue that we should have had five years ago and the sort that should have been engaged in by the U. S. Senate. When did the Senate stop being the world’s greatest deliberative body and start being an engine for re-electing the same old millionaires year after year?
