OpinionJournal - Peggy Noonan

Yikes! Ms. Noonan makes some very good points.

I can see Bush being thrown under the bus.

If the Democrats were smart enough to crawl back under the anti-America/anti-capitalism rocks they came from, their party's political fortunes may tangibly improve.

South Dakota Bans Abortion, Setting Up a Battle - New York Times

Be careful what you wish for.

The extremists in the current abortion debate are the Democrats.

If Roe is overturned, the extremists will be the Republicans.

The State 03/04/2006 AP clarifies story about Katrina, Bush

And if it dominates the news cycles for the nest four days, may, maybe it would undo the damage inflicted.

I doubt it though. There is some other media-generated "scandal" to cover.

In Baby Boomlet, Preschool Derby Is the Fiercest Yet - New York Times

Am I the only one who sees this as pathetic?

No wonder NYC hates the rich - it is projected self-loathing.

OpinionJournal - Wonder Land

Dan Henninger's column is must reading on Fridays (along with Victor David Hansen's NRO one.)

To grab a quote (and bold face where none had been:

It is not my intent to plumb the possibility of mass psychosis in Washington, but nonetheless we must come to grips with the phenomenon of the world's most powerful capital spending so much of its intellectual energy chasing nightmares of its own imagining. Exhibit A here would be the fascinating case history of Scooter Libby and Valerie Plame.
If memory serves, those of us who expect to find value in tracking public events spent more than two years on an obsessive Beltway press search for who "outed" Valerie Plame. And this was a high crime insofar as Ms. Plame was a "covert agent" for the CIA. In someone's notion of political reality, this was a big deal. Its actual size was revealed in a federal court hearing last Friday, as described by National Review's quite grounded White House correspondent, Byron York:
"CIA leak prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald argued . . . that as far as the perjury charges against former Cheney chief of staff Lewis Libby are concerned, it does not matter whether or not Valerie Wilson was a covert CIA agent. . . . 'We're trying a perjury case', Fitzgerald told Judge Reggie Walton. Even if Plame had never worked for the CIA at all, Fitzgerald continued--even if she had been simply mistaken for a CIA agent--the charges against Libby would still stand. In addition, Fitzgerald said, he does not intend to offer 'any proof of actual damage' caused by the disclosure of Wilson's identity." No damage?

Why hasn't this case been thrown out? No damages? No exposing of a covert CIA agent?

Tom McMahon: What I Have Learned In 15 Years

I hope this link doesn't expire.

So much is true. Tragedy is not like the movies. No one writes the magical ending where eveything is shown to be noble.

In times of crisis, you do not know who will be there. Someone will and be grateful for that one while not worrying that you think there should be more.

U.S., India Seal Nuclear Deal

Read: We chose India as an ally in Asia and are OK with giving them nuclear advantages.

More critically, Bush needs them in the WOT and acted without thinking.

400 to 0 - March 2, 2006 - The New York Sun - NY News

Why wasn't it unanimous?

I am heartened to know there are still topics related to race everyone can agree on.
