Context

My last post (“The Drill of Victory”) demonstrates the hazards of the topical bon mot in a virtual medium that lasts, well, virtually forever. To look at it now must engender some head-scratching; at the time, it was a reaction — a riposte — to Senator McCain and others. Perhaps it’s not quite so out-of-context: the rallying cry of the Republican ticket was, after all, “Drill, Baby, Drill!” when it wasn’t “Drill here, drill now, drill more!”

But I do stand by what I said back in June; and, perhaps, it was prescient: the rallying cry didn’t augur well for McCain, after all.
