You miss a few days news and a lot of interesting stuff happens. Bush is having a terrible time as the ramifications of the Georgian fiasco become apparent, Freddie Mac and Fanny Mae go broke and Washington's ally in Pakistan is booted out of power. Economically, militarily and politically the Empire is dissolving before our very eyes.

Alas, as the latest Marianne points out, the left is in such a state of disarray that it will fail to capitalise on the malaise. Still, that need not be a bad thing. The people before the old left parties.
