Is anything more maddening to Bush-haters than this? To see that for all their moralizing, for all their fine words, it took a George W. Bush to change tragedy to triumph for Afghan women? Of course, you won't hear Patricia Ireland of NOW (the one who said that "on balance, women have had an ally in the White House," about Clinton), celebrating the liberation of Afghan, or Iraqi, women. If there's one thing people hate, it's seeing someone they believe to be inferior succeed where they have failed.
I hear W did well in the debate last night, or at least better. Didn't watch. Spent the evening with the very young sons of two good friends and their parents and had an absolute ball.
