Delusions of Democracy

My title for a brilliant post that I started to excerpt but wound up copying almost all of. But since that would be cheating, instead here is the first paragraph.

We can try to articulate, though it's very near the futile edge, why Bush's pardon of Libby is a wrong thing, and we should. So here. Because it is the stunning hammer, the blunt instrument, the immediate weapon visited upon our hope for a brighter future. "Our" meaning something that doesn't hold Libby and Bush as essential. "Our" meaning something that is kept by, or caught by, or at the mildest impeded by what these men are in the world as we live in it now.
