"The central doctrine of Christianity, then, is not that God is a bastard. It is, in the words of the late Dominican theologian Herbert McCabe, that if you don’t love you’re dead, and if you do, they’ll kill you."--Terry Eagleton

"...doesn't philosophy amount to the sum of all thinkable and unthinkable errors, ceaselessly repeated?"--Jean-Luc Marion

“The opposite of poverty is not wealth; the opposite of poverty is justice."--Bryan Stevenson

The Incredible Shrinking President

Who does he think he's talking to?

He's playing defense while bringing up sentiments that were passé when they were used against the Vietnam War protestors.  This is straight out of the late '60's, just before support for the war collapsed and the war ended.

Does he think he's distracting us from Epstein's legal woes?  Does he imagine this "distraction" will work for the next 15 months?  Does he think this reaches beyond his bubble?  Does he care?

Frankly, who cares?  This is the reason 23+ people ran for the Democratic nomination.  There's blood in the water.  (Now what the DNC does about the other races that really matter as much as the Presidential one, is another matter.)
