A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.

Funny ha-ha: I subscribe to the Society of Professional Journalists Internet listserv. Why? I'm not sure exactly. It long ago stopped being a forum for discussing journalism issues. It's now mostly a right-bashing club, with a lone conservative (who's not even a journalist) presenting himself as a whipping boy for a bunch of leftists, from America and abroad.

So, I wasn't surprised when one of the members of the non-existent (according to Eric Alterman) liberal media sent the following message out to the list.


While my fellow American's [sic] are eating freedom fries, dumping Champagne down the toilet and belching war whoops, there's one guy who sees clearly and speaks for me.

Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you William Jefferson Clinton:

"The U.S. should be strengthening the UN and other "'mechanisms of cooperation,'" Clinton said. "We need to be creating a world that we would like to live in when we're not the biggest power on the block."


Clinton, who bombed Serbs in Kosovo (something I agree should have been done, but I also think we should have readied ground troops in case the bombing campaign didn't work), without going to the U.N. and getting approval.

I'd argue that by ousting Saddam Hussein and putting a pro-American democracy in Iraq is creating a world "we would like to live in when we're not the biggest power on the block."
