Defending the defensible

There are many times a year that I think that the only reason I can find that there is a shred of sanity left in the world is by reading Ann Coulter. Here she is, reminding us why we invaded Iraq in the first place. That this world historical victory for the West was actively subverted by GWB’s successor is now part of the historical record, if you can follow the logic of events.

Megan Kelly asked [Jeb] Bush: “Knowing what we know now, would you have authorized the invasion?”

The correct answer is, according to Ann:

Now that we know that a half-century of Teddy Kennedy’s 1965 Immigration Act would result in a country where a man like Barack Obama could be elected president, and then, purely out of antipathy to America, would withdraw every last troop from Iraq, nullifying America’s victory and plunging the entire region into chaos, no, I would not bother removing dangerous despots in order to make America safer.

Instead, I would dedicate myself to overturning our immigration laws, ending the anchor-baby scam and building a triple-layer fence on the border, so that some future Republican president could invade Iraq without worrying about a foreign-elected president like Obama coming in and giving it away.

The reality is that there is no answer that matters any more. America is sinking and the rest of us are going to have to work out what to do for ourselves.
