The American Spectator is looking more curmudgeon-like than ever in its hopeless defense of Bush 43. Mr. Klein’s dismissal of James Baker willfully ignores the fact that Baker would not be involved today if we weren’t facing a military and political disaster in Iraq that would not exist if the current Bush administration possessed one iota of diplomatic sense. Sure, Baker has an ego, but you have no business heaping him with derision when he is using his experience in a noble attempt to clean up someone else’s conspicuous mess.
Mr. Tyrrell’s reference to “Bush’s vibrant economy with historically low unemployment, steady growth, and a stock market at historic highs” is a direct quote from Chairman Karl’s little red book. No mention is made that most economists see a slowdown, and possibly a recession, looming on the horizon, and that there has been no economic advance for the middle class in years. This is the one Ben Stein position that merits attention.p>If you want to develop a reputation as serious journalists, take note that truth is more honorable than muckraking. br> —

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?
