He's a worldbeater, all right

Over on the Democratic bench, worldwise they don't seem to have given things much thought. The differences were especially stark in the last seven days: In the first half of the week, Senate Dems badgered the incoming secretary of state, Condoleezza Rice -- culminating in the decision of West Virginia porkmeister Robert C. Byrd to delay the incoming thereof. Don't ask me why. Byrd, the former Klu Klux Klan Kleagle, is taking a stand over states' rights, or his rights over State, or some such. Whatever the reason, the sight of an old Klansman blocking a little colored girl from Birmingham from getting into her office contributed to the general retro vibe that hangs around the Democratic Party these days.
I am getting to like Mark Steyn. He definitely understands that 9/11 changed everything. Though a little harsh on our democrat friends, he makes some great points about where we should not be focusing our energies right now. Read the article to understand why "exit strategy" is a dumb expression.
