Quote Of The Day

From the Bull Moose. It's so perfect and, now that he mentions it, glaringly obvious I'm physically angry at him for pointing it out before it finally occurred to me.

It is particularly disgusting witnessing the left’s ambiguity or hostility toward’s Israel’s war of self defense. However, their attitude toward Israel should not be surprising - their discomfort with a nation fighting a war of self defense is obvious. The reaction to this conflict reveals one of the great myths of the left - that they are only opposed to the Iraq war but they are otherwise tough on the war against terror. Their attitude toward the use of force mirrors that of the French Foreign Ministry.

Say, yeah... If they're as Strong, Tough on the War on Terrorism as they claim, why do they have such difficulty supporting a rather obvious War of Necessity against an opponent which is, every single day, lobbing hundreds of rockets at Israeli cities?

Could it be -- and just go with me on this; it might sound crazy at first, but give it a chance -- that the left is actually being deliberately disingenuous when they claim to be in favor of pretty much all wars except the war in Iraq?

Via Cold Fury.

Edit: I first wrote Bull Moose's point was "obvious," which was unchariable -- inadvertantly. I was trying to convey the idea of "spot on and so perfectly so that it should have occurred to everyone, but only he actually noticed it."

Frankly, I'm still not sure how to say it. I just threw twenty words at it and it's still not right.

I mean "light-bulb moment," yannow?
