Not All Kerry's Quotes Were Botched Jokes
12/05/2006 12:36:00 AM | Nathan Empsall

It's a darn shame the New York Times now charges you to read its columnists online. I mean, that's a real rip. But, if you do pay for Times Select, or if you can grab a copy of Monday's Times, take a look at Paul Krugman. It's not one of his all time greats, but its a great zinger at the end:

"(Mr. Bush) has never been willing to own up to mistakes, however trivial. If he were to accept the failure of his adventure in Iraq, he would be admitting, at least implicitly, to having made the mother of all mistakes.

So Mr. Bush will keep sending other men's children off to fight his war. And he'll always insist that Iraq would have been a great victory if only his successors had shared his steely determination...

Here's a question for those who might be tempted, yet again, to shy away from a confrontation with Mr. Bush over Iraq: How do you ask a man to be the last to die for a bully's ego?"
