The terrorists hate our freedom, so by eliminating the freedom, we can stop the terrorists from hating us

Least effective forms of political activism

Stop me if you've read this column before.

In 1999, I wrote a dreamy tribute to then presidential candidate Bill Bradley and commented: "I don't believe that I will ever live in a country that elects Bill Bradley president. I'd like to live in that country, though."

In 2002, 27 months before Howard Dean's presidential campaign imploded, I wrote: "Howard Dean is the story we tell ourselves every four years; the Paul Tsongas story, the Bruce Babbitt story, the John Anderson story. It is a very diverting fable, this notion of the brilliant, worthy, and committed outsider who has a decent chance of becoming our next president."

President Obama? Not this time

Either you have razor-sharp political insight, or I think so because I agree 100% with you. Especially about Bill Bradley. (I live in Indiana, so I don't really get a say in presidential primaries.)

P.S. Love, love, LOVE the "least effective forms..."

"The terrorists hate our freedom, so by eliminating the freedom, we can stop the terrorists from hating us."

On the other hand ...

The terrorists hate our freedom, so by circumscribing their access to turn it back on ourselves we can at least try to limit the malicious harm they seek to directly inflict on innocents, because nothing less than submission will stop the terrorists from hating us.
