The Parameters of Debate


Doonesbury-2006-08-06
Today’s Doonesbury just hit a resonant tone with me: “the parameters of debate.” In the strip, the White House press corps is questioning Bush’s choices, or rather the choices he gives himself. While I’m glad the press has brought up this question, I think it has been brought up neither frequently enough nor with enough fervor (see my post “Who Frames the Parameters of the Debate?” from December 9th, 2005.)
Which is why i’m happy for the Blogosphere. The advent of personal blogs can only be good for democracy and the free exchange of (perhaps wild) ideas.
