Mader Blog is on a roll. This post where he quotes Steyn is absolutely worth your attention: bq. "The one consistent feature of the post-9/11 era is the comprehensive failure of the international order. The French use their Security Council veto to protect Saddam. The EU subsidises Palestinian terrorism. The International Atomic Energy Agency provides cover for Iran's nuclear ambitions. The UN summit on racism is an orgy of racism." Word. I also liked Mader's analysis and deconstruction of Howard Dean's big foreign policy speech. Read that, then read his transcript and analysis of Bush's recent press conference. It will tell you more about the coming election that all the talking heads on CNN. Mader leans rightward, but I strongly suspect that a lot of other folks outside of Dean's base are going to have similar reactions.
