Without lapsing into an Alanis Morissette song, isn't it ironic that I wanted to start writing about politics and culture, and then when I start writing I haven't been able to find a suitable topic to get started with?
Here is a quote from Martin Paretz in the latest issue of The New Republic...
“If George W. Bush were to discover a cure for cancer, his critics would denounce him for having done it unilaterally, without adequate consultation, with a crude disregard for the sensibilities of others.”
"The significant fact is that Bush's obsession with the democratization of the region is working. One does not have to admire a lot about George W. Bush to admire what he has so far wrought. One need only be a thoughtful American with an interest in proliferating liberalism around the world. And, if liberals are unwilling to proliferate liberalism, then conservatives will. Rarely has there been a sweeter irony.”
