bloody work...

What a grim bloody day. Surprise, surprise, terrorists haven't gone away...

Inertia and stupidity drag down our efforts and waste our strength. BUT, the terrorists haven't gone away...and every hideous crime will strengthen our resolve and push the sob-sisters farther to the periphery.

And treason! A Democrat Congressional Staffer! Arrested for spying for Saddam! And she won't be the last. You just wait.

It makes my head spin. Or maybe that's the two glasses of Port I've had.

Well. I raise my glass. A toast! Friends. Here's to the second coming of Lafayette Baker!

She won't be the last. We have the files. Saddam's files. Miles and miles and miles of files....

By the way, I predicted that there would be lots of documents. Which was no big deal. But you might like to read my posts, here and here. If only for the fascinating passage by Whittaker Chambers on the weird obsession totalitarians have with documents and legalistic forms...

Trivia question: Lafayette Baker wore a gold badge. What did it say? (For real fun there's a splendid historical novel where Baker has a large part, American Falls by John Calvin Batchelor.)

And if you haven't read Chambers' book Witness, you should. It's one of the great American books, kept in obscurity by our leftist iterary establishment. Or just read the foreword, read the part where he slips away at dusk into the orchard, thinking of suicide, and hears his children calling and searching for him...Haunting stuff. And it's the same war! We're still fighting it!

* Update: This post is a bit overwrought, the woman is not charged with espionage. She seems to be more the fluff-brained "human shield" type.

And yet. And yet. If lefty goofballs (and there are millions of them) can morph into supporters of genocidal fascists so easily...where will they go next? They all share the underlying assumption of the Left that it's OK to sacrifice individuals to help society, or to help the cause...

And in every crowd of mush-brained activists, there are SOME who will sacrifice individuals without a qualm. They surface every time there's a revolution...

Is she an aberration, or the tip of an iceberg?
