Zbigniew Brzezinski - he whose Solomonic wisdom led us from the Shah to the Mullahs’ kakistocracy - has delivered himself of another masterpiece in today’s WaPo. He, like the rest of the lib hierarchy, can’t stand the idea that we can and may win in Iraq. So he rephrases the “cut and run” suggestion of Pelosi, Murtha and the rest into a choice between “cut and run” (which he paraphrases to a ‘relatively prompt disengagement’) and a prolonged military occupation that the American people won’t support. Does anyone doubt his preference?
Zbiggy says the prez should call in several Dems (such as George Mitchell) to redefine victory. How? In terms of “…an attainable yet tolerable outcome in Iraq.” In other words, Brzezinski wants to redefine victory in terms of an acceptable level of defeat. Anyone who is surprised, please go to the back of the class.

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?
