Wolf Pangloss's Fish Taco Stand

"But, reverend father," said Candide, "there is horrible evil in this world."

"What signifies it," said the Dervish, "whether there be evil or good? When his highness sends a ship to Egypt, does he trouble his head whether the mice on board are at their ease or not?"

"What, then, must we do?" said Pangloss.

"Hold your tongue," answered the Dervish.

Nutroots now a Parenthesis?

Donald Douglas notes that Edwards' and Kucinich's withdrawal from the presidential campaign leaves behind those Democrat candidates the nutroots most despised.
There's been some recent commentary suggesting one of the biggest losers in primary season '08 is the angry left.

With top hard-left candidates John Edwards and Dennis Kucinich already out of the race, have the radical netroots Democratic Party activists sunk to irrelevancy?

Dan Gerstein made an interesting observation on this over the weekend, at the Wall Street Journal. He argues that while the Clinton-Obama South Carolina results appeared to resolve tensions over race and politics, the underlying significance of Obama's victory was to relegate the Daily Kos angry hordes to the sidelines of the party

It would be a result most devoutly to be wished if the nutroots were to be revealed as the outside parenthesis of the left rather than the mainstream left. But as Douglas points out, even if this were to happen we can expect more Alinsky style troublemaking from the Kos/MoveOn/Soros demonizing hordes.
