Reader Peter Ingemi, meanwhile, offers a prediction:

I’m remembering the coy saying about the French resistance. “If everyone who claimed to be in the resistance really had been, there would have been nobody left to collaborate.”

I make the following prediction: In 20 or 25 years (it might not even take that long) all the people who where saying that the war was wrong and Iraq was wrong will talk about how America brought democracy to Iraq and Afghanistan and how they were a part of it due to their protests and desire for democracy and the end of tyranny. (of course they will not mention that the tyranny that they meant was us.) If the same people who write the current history books write them again be sure that this will happen.

Heh. Yeah, just like everybody pulled together during the Cold War.

And the prophesy is fulfilled

Oops Sorry wrong prophesy, lets try again:

Kind of hard to figure out which clip is a better example of Fiction isn’t it?

Meet the Press this week
should be interesting.

Ditto to Gateway and Jules Crittenden

what they said.

My thoughts from last year are here.

comes from who else, Jay Nordlinger:

George W. Bush used to mock mercilessly the idea of taking Islamofascists to court. He’d say things like, “They didn’t know what they were getting into, those terrorists. They probably thought we’d take ’em to court!” On one occasion, he said, “See, they thought we’d probably just file a lawsuit or two!”

Well, I guess that’s what Americans do: file lawsuits. Long ago, it passed baseball as the national pastime.

It is moments like this that I miss President Bush so much you can’t believe it.

Update: Can you believe there is no Memeorandum thread on it at the moment?
