Ironic Post of the Day

David Brooks goes after John Kerry for having good intentions but chickening out when it comes to implementation. “He will momentarily embrace daring ideas, but if they threaten core constituencies, he often abandons them, returning meekly to the Democratic choir.” (Read the rest of this sorry-ass excuse for cogent thought here.)

Gee, you’d think Kerry was talking about lowering taxes while balancing the budget, foreswearing “nation-building,” being “humble” in our alliances with other countries, working as a “uniter, not a divider” with the Congress and the opposition party, and never hiding behind “legalisms” to justify secret activities within the Administration. To shamelessly borrow an acronym from corrente, IOKIYAR – It’s Okay If You’re A Republican.
