Now this is really unusual: Senate Minority Leader Tom Daschle is standing by his criticism of President Bush’s diplomacy.
Usually when a high-profile politician or activist says something unpopular they make some lame excuse about “well, what I meant was…”
You rarely hear someone say “I said something stupid,” and hardly ever do you hear them say “I said it, and I meant it.”
It reminds me of a story posted on This Is True a while back about a French politician who was spotted in the audience at a cabaret show that included male nudity. True editor Randy Cassingham summed up the response as “Yeah, so?”
Why or why did I click on that link?! Now I’m p.o.’ed.

Good points, by the way.
Your posts seem to disappear, sometimes. This one is the most recent example.
I commented on it, then went to compose a blog entry of my own. When I came back to scoop up some links, the post was gone from the front page.
I even refreshed my browser. No love.
If it weren’t for your “most recent comments” box, I’m not sure how/if I could’ve retrieved the entry.
Am I missing something?
It’s probably the “From the archive…” posts. The second post on the front page is always a randomly-chosen old post. It’s cached, so it’ll keep the same one when you hit reload, but the cache is cleared whenever a comment gets accepted, and it picks a new random post.
Thanks for letting me know.
