A Severe Bleating

Just in case you don't read Lileks religiously (that is, on a daily basis), go read today's bleat. He deconstructs Dr. Seuss, and vivisects "Eric Blair."

...if you disagree with those who believe Bush masterminded 9-11, you are a fascist stooge; if you support fighting actual fascists, you are a blood-crazed warmonger. Anyway, lesson noted: avoid getting shot battling fascists. Stand aside and let them in.

Um, you appear to have linked to your own site instead of a specific Lileks' column

The 'Spainish Civil War' analogy is interesting...but I will point out that by halfway through the war, the Republicans had been pretty much taken over by the NKVD (who, when they found out that Orwell wanted to publish a magazine article highly critical of them, ordered him killed-after volunteering to come and fight for the Republicans, he had to escape Spain in disguise) and that if they had won Spain would've been a Soviet client state. Franco was nobody's mensch, but the government he built had a smooth transition to a parlimentary system. I doubt the same could be said for La Pasionara and her little friends.

That's what happens when I forget to put in the link...

Fixed now, thanks.
