Has anyone noticed how Iraq's parliament is suddenly acting like the US Cogress? It may look bad in many ways, but with the surge still succeeding - like any serious analyst could have believed it could fail - that Iraq's parliament is "acting like a bunch of politicians" should be seen as genuine progress.
Gisele Bundchen and Pat Buchanan are at it again whining about America "living beyond her means" because of trade deficits (an oxymoron) and the presently-weakened dollar. We've been down this road before and the dollar inevitably bounces back. Free trade has manifest plusses and its minuses can be mitigated and it adds up to that America remains in very good shape.
