For you dear readers

For you, dear readers, I tried to watch the Sunday morning talk shows. But I must have blacked out when Newt Gingrich, on Meet the Press, said that we are now engaged in World War III and cited as evidence of that notion the terrorist wannabes arrested in Miami. I don’t remember anything after that point. I know I have fallen down in the eternal battle against bamboozlement. I will only note that I had already endured Bill Kristol’s unmitigated bamboozling of the Plame affair on Fox News Sunday. Surely that must count for something.
