Editorial of the day

That Mark Steyn is a pretty smart guy. He nails down a lot of truths in "Don't deny that some Muslims are hot for jihad".

Among them:
" couldn't help noticing it was followers the anti-war crowd seemed to be short of on the third anniversary [of the Iraq War]. The next weekend half a million illegal immigrants -- whoops, sorry, half a million fine upstanding members of the Undocumented-American community-- took to the streets, and you suddenly realized what a big-time demonstration is supposed to look like. These guys aren't even meant to be in the country and they can organize a better public protest movement than an anti-war crowd that's promoted 24/7 by the media and Hollywood."

"But there are two kinds of persons objecting to the war: There's a shriveled Sheehan-Sheen left that's in effect urging on American failure in Iraq, and there's a potentially far larger group to their right that's increasingly wary of the official conception of the war. The latter don't want America to lose, they want to win -- decisively."

That is enough to whet your appetite.
