Ask a Werewolf: Iraq and Terrorism

My latest Ask a Werewolf is up at Ezra's. I like this format, because it indirectly addresses the fact that there's something oddly comical about random bloggers out in the hinterlands offering political strategy advice to high-profile elected officials.

It really is impossible to capture the absurdity of some schmo like me in his or her living room armchair quarterbacking professional political operatives.

But, it may be hilighting flaws in the selection of such operatives. Up until about seven years ago, no baseball team really took an analytical approach drafting and signing players. Then the Oakland A's started, and now the Red Sox, Dodgers, Blue Jays, and to a lesser extent Padres and other teams have joined on. And that all happened, more or less, because a bunch of out-of-power guys thought about the problem for a while, had some good ideas, and then implemented them.

So, it is not without precedent.
