news & opinion with no titillating non-news from the major non-news channels.


I am: progressive, not a wild-eyed Progressive; liberal, but shun liberals and Liberals; conservative, but some Conservatives worry me; absolutely NOT a libertarian. I am: an idealist, but no utopian; a pragmatist, but no Machiavellian. I am a realist who dreams.


I welcome all opinions.

Snatching defeat from the jaws of victory:
   Podhoretz rebuts

Norman Podhoretz, writing The Panic Over Iraq at Commentary the week before last month's Iraq elections, explains that the recent panic of anti-war critics is the result of their

realization that the chances of pulling off the proverbial feat of snatching an American defeat from the jaws of victory are rapidly running out.

Podhoretz writes an excellent rebuttal of alleged failures in the Iraq War, arguing that we are winning, both militarily and politically.
