No, I’m not being sarcastic. The Instapundit really and truly gets it. Discussing the latest Republican “anti-terror” stunt (this one about warrantless wiretapping), he reflects:
It’s almost as if they’re more interested in forcing Democrats to vote on this before the elections than they are in actually getting the bill out.
“Heh. Indeed,” indeed.
For Bush and his co-conspirators and enablers, the “war on terror” has always been less about national security than it is about winning elections. Indeed, to this crowd all governing is merely a way to win and keep office, either by pandering to ignorant voters or by raising money from the financial beneficiaries of specific decisions.
