Don't you just love the wacked-out-of-its-skull Wall Street Journal editorial page(s)? It never ceases to amaze me how the writing can on the surface appear so impressive (technically), and yet the reasoning and logic so nutzoid.

Example: every few weeks they've been publishing a "roundup of the past two weeks' good news from Iraq" column. It's basically a thumb-their-nose-at-the-"liberal"-press collection of what they deem lesser reported upbeat stories. OK, that would be fine and dandy if it weren't for the #1 reason for being in Iraq was to find WMD -- remember?! Nearly all of these "good news" items have to do with the nation-building that has BECOME the reason for invading Iraq (once it was apparent to all that no weapons, or terrorists, were there). Revisionist history is fast at work, erasing all that blather by Bush/Cheney, replaced by Iraqis need a better country (democracy) and we're the ones to provide it.

It's for this reason (among others) that reasonable people cannot take the WSJ editorial pages seriously. The intellectual dishonesty is so widespread it's comical.
