Embedded to the Grave
We live in denial. According to the polls, a majority of Americans believe that our draft-dodging president is a brave combat leader and his challenger -- with all his medals -- doesn’t have the guts to finish this war and carry on the wars to come. Many of the same citizens defend moral values in the voting booth, and tune in on pornography at home. They call us liberals bleeding hearts -- real moral values and intelligence make them nervous. That explains the survival of such mad hatters as Bill O’Reilly, Rush Limbaugh and William Bennett.
But who’s sane? Check out today’s editorial in the liberal Times, which salutes our "swift and stunning" victory last week and adds that "about 20,000 to 40,000 more soldiers are needed right away." Lord have mercy and the creek don’t rise.
