That Popping Sound Was George Will's Head

Annnnnnnd George Will is off the reservation. You can practically see his toupee doing a somersault.

Last week, in the latest iteration of a familiar speech (the enemy is "brutal,'' "we're on the offensive,'' "freedom is on the march'') that should be retired, the president said, "This is a moment of choosing for the Iraqi people.'' Meaning what? Who is to choose, and by what mechanism? Most Iraqis already "chose'' -- meaning prefer -- peace. But in 1917 there were only a few thousand Bolsheviks among 150 million Russians -- and the Bolsheviks succeeded in hijacking the country for seven decades.

Any chance you can go into your blogger settings to change the rss feed to show the whole post, rather than an excerpt? Makes it much easier to keep up. Thanks.

Actually, I just cut and pasted the excerpt.

I've never bothered with RSS, and have no idea what it is exactly, what it does, or how it works.
