My personal musings about anything that gets on my radar screen--heavily dominated by politics.

--"Methinks She Doth Protest Too Much . . . "

Let's review.

President Bush: "Some seem to believe that we should negotiate with the terrorists and radicals, as if some ingenious argument will persuade them they have been wrong all along.

"We have heard this foolish delusion before. As Nazi tanks crossed into Poland in 1939, an American senator declared: 'Lord, if I could only have talked to Hitler, all this might have been avoided.' We have an obligation to call this what it is — the false comfort of appeasement, which has been repeatedly discredited by history,"

And now, Senator Obama: "It is sad that President Bush would use a speech to the Knesset on the 60th anniversary of Israel's independence to launch a false political attack," Obama said in a statement his aides distributed. "George Bush knows that I have never supported engagement with terrorists, and the president's extraordinary politicization of foreign policy and the politics of fear do nothing to secure the American people or our stalwart ally Israel."

I'm not sure why Obama is so up in arms, as the President never actually mentioned his name or quoted any of his "famous" rhetoric.

Yet, Obama assumes that the President was talking about him.

Probably a safe assumption, though--I thought he was talking about him, too.

--My brother, the wit:

A fascination with the weak is a creation only of the Western civilization's romantic mind, and I don't think there are a lot of those in the Middle East.

We always thought he was the smart one. Leave it to him to nail a liberal pathology right on the head.
