Very poetic. But somehow I doubt it'll sway anybody who, er, doesn't like poetry.

"It was a struggle between good and it was a struggle between evil."

So that's what, four factions?

I'm just sayin'.

This would have more merit if it had a link after every quote.

It's hard to do (prettily) in the print edition, but it's easy to do in the online version. I mean, why should I have to hunt down all of those lies to ascertain if they're lies or just statements out of context, true-at-the-time, etc, ?

No, Harper's has not embraced the Internet Age. (For a variety of reasons, and I'm willing to give them a break because they've been at it for so long.) But Snopes has. And here's their take on that anti-Bush resume you may have found in your email inbox recently. They link to an apologists' review of each of those claims. Enjoy!
