Kleiman: A President for Grownups.

As is so often the case, I agree with Mark.

Here's a wee quiz:

Terrorists largely aim to __________.

If you said 'terrorize,' give yourself an 'A.'

Al Qaeda and their GOP force multipliers are determined to keep us all afraid. Doing even merely that makes them successful. And the wimpier we are, the easier it is for them to succeed. And the more we act like children, the wimpier we are. This is the kind of nonsense that makes people think that Carter was a terrible president and Reagan was a great one. It is the kind of nonsense spewed by people like Dowd who need "a Daddy in the White House who will tell her scary bedtime stories and then reassure her that Daddy will keep her safe."

Cripes, folks, buck up.

WS -- I think the link is broken. Is it pointing to Kleiman's post at samefacts.com?

My favorite expression of contempt for those who wallow in being terrorized is by John Roger, over at King Fu Monkey who posted "Wait, Aren't You Scared" in August 2006, "right after the Juicebox terrorists were rolled up."

Best,
Jim
