Patterico's Pontifications

MAY I HAVE YOUR DAUGHTER’S HAND IN MARRIAGE: I am starting to think that asking for a “second” (eighteenth) U.N. resolution is a little like asking your bride-to-be’s father for his permission to marry her. In today’s world, such permission would be nice to have — but if the answer is “no” it amounts to nothing more than an annoyance.

Nor should it be treated as anything else, when our national security may be at stake. (I’m talking about the resolution now. Stay with me.)

OUR PEACE PRIZE NOMINEE SPEAKS OUT: Well-known wise man, sage, and wearer of purple sunglasses Bono has this quote, showing his mastery of recent events: “I think America has no experience with terrorism or even with war. . . In Europe, we know a little bit more about these things.”

Hey, Bono, we got about 3,000 families who need your wisdom on how America lacks experience with terrorism.

SURPRISE, SURPRISE: I mentioned recently

SURPRISE, SURPRISE: I mentioned recently that the White House had offered Democratic Senators several ways to get more information on Estrada without violating the historic confidentiality of internal Justice Department memos. Senators could submit written questions, interview Estrada further, or talk to any of several prominent Democrats who had supervised him at the Solicitor General’s office and saw his memos. So far, no response — not a surprise, but further illustration of how cynical and hypocritical the Democratic complaints really are.

HILLARY SUPPORTS BUSH: Surprisingly, Hillary

HILLARY SUPPORTS BUSH: Surprisingly, Hillary has issued a statement in which she says she “fully supports” Bush’s Iraq policy. (It’s a bit of a change in position from when she complained a month ago that the administration was not sharing enough intelligence with inspectors.)

I predict that she will hedge on this at some point in the near future, explaining that her statement didn’t mean she didn’t have a hundred million criticisms of ways Bush has handled the matter. With the Clintons, you never know exactly where you stand. Another reason I like Bush.
