Impossible things sometimes happen before breakfast...

A snippet from Roger Simon's blog:

...I noticed below a blogger from the Czech Republic--a place I know well and love--posted that any optimism about the situation in Iraq is delusional. Well, it certainly is if you think it is. Or, as the great Pirandello famously wrote, "It Is So If You Think So." One would hope that Czechs of all people would know the results of giving up...
When I was growing up "Czechoslovakia" was just a word. It wasn't part of the real world; I never heard of anyone going there. The Iron Curtain was permanent.

We should remember things like this when the nay-sayers start wallowing in the impossibility of everything...

Of course many of today's doom-sayers are phonies...if a Democrat were put into the White House the clouds of gloom would dissipate miraculously, much like the "homeless" disappeared from the news the moment Bill Clinton became President. Until then, "any optimism is delusional."
