…George Will hands his glove to a fan and goes for a beer.
Thanks to Paul Wells for calling my attention to this slapfight on the right.
Respected rightwing commentator George Will zings the Bush administration using the word “realism;” a word they, apparently, despise.

My favorite quotation from Wehner:
The status quo in the Middle East was a downward spiral of oppression, officially-sanctioned conspiracy theories, economic stagnation, growing radicalism, and an ideology of violence.
