For Krugman's ruminations please click on the title of this post. For theater critic turned political analyst (and doesn't it show?) please go here: http://www.nytimes.com/2009/03/22/opinion/22rich.html?_r=2&ref=opinion
Relish the fact that Rich even suggests Obama's "Katrina Moment" may have arrived. Ouch.

This ABC News/BBC poll documents the vast improvements that have taken place in Iraq since the surge began, as seen by the Iraqis themselves. Material conditions, faith in government institutions and, above all, security have all improved dramatically, giving rise to widespread optimism about Iraq's future. You can review the poll data here and draw your own conclusions. These charts, from the ABC report, are typical; click to enlarge. Iraqis' ratings of security, crime protection and freedom of movement where they live:
Support for democracy:
Confidence in Iraqi institutions:
One poll finding that is not highlighted by ABC but that stunned me was this: 53 percent of Iraqis say they "never" attend mosque, while another 11 percent attend "several times a year" or less.

Uh oh: Camille opined recently that the people around Obama (and not The One Himself) were to blame for the astonishingly incompetent performance this administration has turned in since the Inauguration. Mind you she didn't blame Obama, just his aids but this was enough for the moonbats at Salon to go full batsh*t. This is a great read so do yourself a favor and click on the title to this post to view it yourself. PLEASE note the language alert: these hopey/changey types use very foul language.

MoDo was much tougher and she doesn't claim to be either a conservative or a Republican. Peggy's schtick is tired and stale and to at least one of us here at MC she remains dead. Wake us if she rediscovers her political principles.
