The real appeasers

May 15, 2008

Sometimes the best insight and analysis of the day’s news comes from anonymous “readers” who, like me, devour our favorite blogs with unbridled fervor. Here’s a nod to just such a person, who takes on President Bush and John McCain for their attacks today on Barack Obama for his willingness to talk to Iran’s president. Imagine that — the audacity to talk to adversaries. (Remedial history 101: Reagan met with Gorbachev, Nixon with Mao during the Cold War).

Don’t wait for the mainstream media to dissect Bush or McCain’s words with such illuminating precision. It will never happen. (Courtesy of Talking Points Memo, one of my favorite sites.)
