"Oh, Lord"

They actually publish some pretty crazy things in op-eds that don’t mention me. Check out David Ignatius gushing all over Condoleezza Rice and thank the good lord that Greg Djerejian already rebutted it.

Also worth a read are Max Boot’s neoimperial dreams. Before you read his column, though, read Kevin Carey on the link between school funding and education reform. His argument is that legislators (voters, etc.) will be willing to pony up more money for schools, but only if they’re assured in advance that it’s not just “more money for the same thing.” That all sounds like how a reasonable world would work. Now turn back to Boot. Notice that he’s calling for the expenditure of hundreds of billions of additional dollars in order to do, yes, the same thing. And notice how eerily plausible it is that he’ll actually get his way.
