Better Angels

"...all over this broad land, will yet swell the chorus of the Union, when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature." ---Abraham Lincoln, First Innaugural Address

Ouch! Will Brings the Smackdown!

What a hectoring know-it-all. I've never had any use for him and usually don't even bother to read his column in Newsweek. But for some reason I did read it yesterday and was amazed to see this:

Last week in The Washington Post, Robert Kagan, a leading neoconservative, wrote a column that illustrates why neoconservatives alarm almost everyone who isn't one—and especially dismay real conservatives. (emphasis mine)

Since I imagine Will considers himself a "real conservative" I'm going to take this as a sign that the Republican civil war has begun. Can it be they've finally realized the untenable position these imperialist clowns have put them in? I'm going to enjoy this.

(Will also gets his shots in at Kerry, concluding the column with this:"Lurking there is the idea behind foreign-policy overreaching—the anticonservative delusion that political will can control the world. And Kerry has nothing to say about it." Whatever.)
