Actually, we never really left but the Paul bearers thought we did. They can have Susan Rice as UN Ambassador while we'll take John Bolton. We took a pass on seeing Ron Paul in the flesh when he appeared with Michelle Bachman; we're not much for cult followings. And unlike the loony Paulites, we don't think highly about legalizing all drugs. Oh! And auditing the Federal Reserve. Surely we'll find the second gunman in Dealey Plaza lurking somewhere in that paper trail. The surge in Iraq worked, despite the nasal scolding Dr. Paul never tired of giving. MC finds little coherence in his or his followers' agenda or issues that remain. Color us unimpressed and bored.
Brett Stephens in yesterday's WSJ has an excellent article on neocons and neoconservatism ("the neocons are back because Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Kim Jong Il and Vladimir Putin never went away"). Heh.
