has done a really good job of blogging Joe Trippi’s speech today at ETech. It seems that there’s a bit of a conspiracy-watch going through Trippi’s noggin right now, but nevertheless a very interesting talk (judging by Lebkowsky’s treatment of it anyhow).

In the guise of a review of the recent Frum/Perle tome, “An End to Evil: How to Win the War on Terror,” Michael Lind has done a very nice job of explicating the intellectual history of neoconservatism while simultaneously taking on David Brooks and his odd statement that neocons don’t really exist (and even if they did, to be against them is anti-semitic). The article is called, A Tragedy of Errors. He ends his piece with the following gem:
David Brooks and his colleagues in the neocon press are half right. There is no neocon network of scheming masterminds–only a network of scheming blunderers. As a result of their own amateurism and incompetence, the neoconservatives have humiliated themselves. If they now claim that they never existed–well, you can hardly blame them, can you?”
I’m trying to set things up so I can publish to this blog from my Treo 270. I have had some limited success, but it’s still not working as I hope it would. It’s not as easy and “clean” as I would like. I have tried launching a URL that would otherwise be used for a bookmarklet, which entered the material into the backend but didn’t publish it on the site. I have also tried something called KABlog which I haven’t been able to get working. I’d prefer to just use the bookmarklet approach though – I should just be able to do this from a web page, no? What is missing that puts the post into MT but doesn’t actually make the post live?
Does this one work?
