Random commentary and senseless acts of blogging.
The first Republican president once said, "While the people retain their virtue and their vigilance, no administration by any extreme of wickedness or folly can seriously injure the government in the short space of four years." If Mr. Lincoln could see what's happened in these last three-and-a-half years, he might hedge a little on that statement.

I'm perfectly happy that Tom Friedman, who is usually quite good, has a column (link from Balkinization) today which echoes some points in my post just below on how Bush's bungling of diplomacy has destroyed support for a war which ought to be widely popular, It's okay that Instapundit has put up several posts which join me in mocking Chirac's absurd bullying of pro-US Eastern Europeans. Even if Glenn is more of right-winger than he admits to, he's a bright guy who gets a lot of stuff right, and anyway, I first found out about the story from his blog.
But now I find out (again from Glen) that the Arab News agrees with me and is also comparing Chirac to Bush! Do I have to retract the post, or maybe just take a shower?
