I agree with John McCain: In the face of the problem with which the North Korean nuclear test confronts not merely the country but the world, now is no time to point out the feckless, dim-witted Bush Administration policies that paved the way for that test. Our need for national unity is so great that we should pretend to ignore the fact that we are currently led by the Worst. President. Ever.
On the other hand, since Bill Clinton is no longer President, it’s perfectly safe to blame him for everything, whatever his actual level of responsibility, especially since it will make us all feel better by distracting us from the fine mess we’re now in.
Look at it this way: Which is the more cheerful thought, Monica Lewinsky on her knees, or Kim Jong Il with a nuke?
