Coalition of the irrelevant

The best commentary this morning seems to relate one or another to the division between those who liberated Iraq and those who most notably opposed it. Leading the pack in entertainment value is (of course) Mark Steyn in the National Post: “Welcome to Anglo-Saxon reality.” In his Daily Telegraph column he responds to the liberal gripes of the moment with the refrain “Meanwhile, back in the real world”: “Movers and shakers have move moved on to the next ‘disaster.'”
The issue of the Weekly Standard out this morning is full of good stuff, most of it unavailable to non-subscribers. But one of the good pieces addresses an issue related to Steyn’s column: “Forgiveness for France?” (Subhead: “Non.”) Terence Jeffrey has a column in the Washington Times that provides plenty of material for us to worry about in this context: “The coming conflict with France.”
In one of the excellent Weekly Standard articles that is unavailable for posting today, Noemie Emery documents the division between core Democrats (Democratic primary voters) and the rest of the country. This domestic division of course mirrors the international division between those who liberated Iraq and those who most notably opposed it. The Washington Times reports an interesting story that gives some sense of this domestic division: “Constituents jeer Pelosi over acquiescence on Iraq.”
