Care for some salt with that crow, Linda?

Babble on.

Bob Tarantino is the best fisker in the Canadian blogosphere. Period.

Today, he hands Linda McQuaig her factually-challenged caboose:

Should Bush have expressly disavowed the [Kyoto] treaty? Probably not. Doing so was bad diplomacy and bad politics. It gave his opponents one more club to hit at him with. He should have adopted the Clintonian strategy: talk like you're going to do something about it, but just don't get around to it. Plausible deniability, and all that. To put it more finely, he was probably correct to not waste time on trying to ratify it, and the Senate was probably correct to refuse to ratify it, but Bush didn't need to advertise it. Whatever. But to paint the rejection of Kyoto as an entirely Bush-made phenomenon is, well, a lie.

One lie per column, you can let it slide. But there was another lie in which Linda felt the need to indulge...

Read it all, and you'll grow up big and strong-minded.

Babble off.

Would it help if I said that I didn't like Bill Clinton either. Too Republican for me.
