Just Thinkin'

Andrew Sullivan points to a thought-provoking article on "metacognition"(or the practice of thinking about the way one engages in the act of thinking - sometimes known as second-guessing, in my opinion) and John McCain. One is reminded of Hamlet feeling "sicklied o'er by the pale cast of thought".
Mr. Sullivan takes the position that a little indecisiveness is a small price to pay if the alternative is to follow McCain's Clockwork Orange philosophy. "Suddenly, I viddied that thinking was for the gloopy ones, and that the oomny ones use like, inspiration and what Bog sends."
