The Opinion Times refers to your humble Fool!

Right here, baby!

Welcome Opinion Times Readers! Make yourself at home.

By the way, if you're looking for my own musings on Senator Frist's stab in the back latest stupid move, get it here, here, here and here!

Jim Pfaff, by the way, gets it just right:
This comes across as a pure political calculation designed to tobe a tradeoff for something much bigger (say…..a John Roberts up or down vote?). If so, it’s bad math, and from the standpoint of conservatives, he can’t do his long division. People who make their judgements of political actions on the basis of principle prefer a straight up fight which is also the only effective way to promote principle. But Frist is trying to play it both ways here.
If Fools surrender their principles just to achieve a political end, then they're just like every other Reasonable Machiavellian out there. Frist has departed from Foolish company, as far as I'm concerned.

If Fools don't right the ship that is our fast-sinking culture, then soon the masses will haul Reasonable Machiavellians like Frist onto their shoulders. They'll parade the streets with them, too!
