As I read Bob Tyrrell’s comments about being in London yesterday when the me-go-boom faction raised its ugly head again, I was struck by the same calm, stoic view of the British on the TV channels.
Later, as I rode a shuttle bus back to where I park my car after fighting the commuter wars here in the U.S., the radio station the driver was listening to started playing Toby Keith’s “The Angry American.” When it came to the part so offensive to Peter Jennings and the MSM — “You’ll be sorry that you messed with the US of A/For we’ll put a boot in your a**, it’s the American way” — I started thinking about the historical reactions of the British. Over the years, one would have to cite cold, deliberate fury as one way they have taken care of this in the past. 7-7 will join 9-11 in the pantheon of infamy, no doubt about it.p>P.S. My wife bet me that it will be less than a week before the first “progressive” cites this as an example (along with Abu Ghraib, Guantanamo, WMD, Zarqawi, OBL, beheadings, kidnappings, car bombings, canceling Beany and Cecil, or any other lame excuse for indignant pseudo-righteous behavior) of why we need a timetable to pull out of Iraq. I didn’t take her up on that. br> —
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
