You Go Out of Town for A Couple of Days . . .


and all kinds of interesting things happen. John Kerry had an interview published in the New York Times Magazine in which his true foreign policy views seem quite clear. As Hugh Hewitt stated (and as I quoted him below), Kerry is our Neville Chamberlain. He is not unpatriotic or a bad man. He is simply and terribly wrong. It now happens that William Tucker has a piece on that very subject in The American Spectator. One word describes Tucker's article: devastating.

A nice, warm moment from the campaign trail.

William Weld, former governor of Massacusetts and Kerry's unsuccessful challenger in the 1996 Massachusetts Senate race, has an interesting piece on Kerry in today's Wall Street Journal.

UPDATE: David Brooks summarizes the essence of the clashing worldviews of Bush and Kerry, and of conservatives and liberals, in this New York Times op-ed piece.


"Study. That's all. It's not tough. You're not picking cotton. You're not picking up the trash. You're not washing windows. You sit down. You read. You develop your brain."

--Bill Cosby speaking at the Fred D. Thompson Middle School in Richmond, Va. where 65 percent of the 700 students meet low-income criteria for free or reduced-price lunches.

I'm afraid that Kerry (and the rest of the Democratic "herd"--notable exceptions being Lieberman and a notable few others) go Neville Chamberlain one better. Or would that be one worse? Chamberlain's naivete, or policy of wishful thinking, at least came before Britain was actually at war with Germany. The undermining of the American effort in Afghanistan and, more devastatinglly, in Iraq by the Democratic contenders ever since the primaries is nothing short of treasonous. That they are not be called on it--and in fact are being heralded for it--says an awful lot about the comfortable oblivion in which a lot of privileged Americans (and we are mostly all privileged, when you think about it very long) live each day.
