The Unstated Stakes

Jay Nordlinger reminds us of the stakes of this election:

This is how it could happen next month. Americans may vote for this tough-minded, articulate hawk we see in the debates — the guy who looks uncannily like Senator Kerry, the longtime senator from Massachusetts. And then, when he's in, that whole crowd will be in: Charlie Rangel, the Deaniacs, MoveOn.org, Michael Moore, Bill Maher, all of them. It'll be their victory.

Yikes.

Yikes is right.

Yet another reason why Rod Dreher's comments are so shortsighted.

Hmmmm, let's see....

On the one hand, a tough-minded(? shouldn't this be tough-sounding instead), articulate hawk.

And on the other hand, a blooded hawk that nearly always sounds somewhat articulate when he's got speech material prepared.

The first sees terrorists as a nuisance.

The second sees Kerry as a nuisance.

What am I missing in this picture?

Check out the unbelievable arrogance on display in these letters from prominent Brits to voters in America. The thought of these smug a-holes gloating if Bush loses is almost too much to bear. Somehow I don't think this is going to win over any undecideds, however.
(I think registration is req'd on the link.)

A Kerry victory may be God's chastisement on the US.

A chastisement on just the US? Think larger.
