The awesomely clear-sighted Charles Krauthammer

The awesomely clear-sighted Charles Krauthammer seems a tad optimistic to me this morning, but I love the sentiment: “UN, RIP.” The column acutely describes the Orwellian nature of the United Nations without quite getting to the heart of the matter. The heart of the matter seems to me to lie in the charter of the UN; like Rosemary’s baby, the organization is misconceived. Krauthammer’s column nevertheless provides a lot of evidence to support the proposition. The column appears in this morning’s Washington Post, which also carries Robert Kagan’s “Politicians with guts.” Like Krauthammer’s, it’s a good one. But the best column today is Tom Wolfe’s tribute to the Manhattan Instittute: “Revolutionaries.” (Courtesy of RealClearPolitics.)
