Judith Miller is gone at the New York Times and Bill Keller clears up his mysterious description of Miller’s “entanglement” with Scooter Libby. Now Miller is freed up to write a book titled, say, Truth and Duty: The Press, The President, and the Privilege of Power (The Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter who broke the WMD stories). That’s the title, withÂ a few changes, of Mapes’ book.Â MapesÂ says she “broke” the National Guard stories.Â That’s right: She turnsÂ her forgery fiasco into a journalistic coup.Â ItÂ is more accurate to say she wasÂ broken by the story.Â But no matter: unlike the sacked (or, as Keller puts it, “retired”)Â Miller, MapesÂ realized that if she ran amok for the right cause theÂ elite mediaÂ would never pin that label on her.Â

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?
