Today’s Happy Thought

But the important aspect of these (petty, partisan) attacks is that, in coordination with left-wing Democrats, including former President Clinton, the media have created a maniacal Bush-bashing aimed at having America lose the war, and with it our traditional ability to guide the world toward a better future. Fortunately, history isn’t written by typically impatient, unwise and biased journalists. If history is a guide, their opinions are nearly perfect contrary indicators of eventual reality. The reality is that America — and specifically President Bush — is winning one of the great contests of all time, World War IV, the fight by the civilized secular world against Muslim extremism, the last repository of fascism.

Feedback: In a perfect world Martin L. Gross would be pushing Charles Krauthammer in his wheelchair down a Baghdad highway having a deep and lively conversation (among two shining neoconservatives) about what a great success Iraq is. Then Krauthammer would suddenly interrupt Gross’s theory of how Bush will be one of the great presidents (right up there with FDR!) to say “Martin? what’s that metal case alongside the road there…the one with the wires sticking out?” — Bearable Bob.
