With luck, [livejournal.com profile] mollpeartree is right to suggest, in the comments to my previous post regarding the Bush Administration's plans for Iran, that Hersh's revelations might not be gospel but, instead, anything ranging from an effort to intimidate the Iranian leadership to an effort to undercut the Bush Administration. This makes me feel somewhat less concerned.

Even so. In 1998, Clinton was impeached for cheating on his wife. Bush is considering nuking Iran, but is he going to be impeached any time soon? Proportion matters, as always; politics needs a theory of aesthetics even if it rejects morality.
