Glenn Reynolds, Supergenius


Via Belle Waring at Crooked Timber, I found these serious answers to serious questions by Glenn “Instapundit” Reynolds:

1. Did you support the invasion of Iraq?


2. Have you changed your position?

No. Sanctions were failing and Saddam was a threat, making any other action in the region impossible.

3. What should the U.S. do in Iraq now?


The last answer is of course the best, since he cuts through all the foolish, eggheaded, unmanly, terrorist-sympathizing concerns about planning or strategy and gets straight to the point. The Reynolds solution can clearly be adapted to other intractable problems — for example:

What should we do about cancer?

Cure it.

What should we do about world hunger?

Make sure everyone gets enough food.

Yes, I know, that second answer has too many details. That’s why DCDL isn’t on the A list of blogs.

I invite you to apply the Reynolds solution to other world problems (or city problems, or personal problems) in the comments.

    Wrong! The solution is more tax cuts for the rich! Everyone knows that!

  7. Joe Lieberman Asks Us to Believe Six Impossible Things Before Breakfast

    Via Atrios, I see that Joe Lieberman has an op-ed in the Hartford Courant this morning. The overall theme of the piece — that Lieberman, the 18-year incumbent, is an agent of change, while Ned Lamont represents the status quo — is ridiculo…
