Exactly Right...

John Derbyshire on George Galloway. The British parliamentary system rewards aggressive, combative, rhetoric, whereas U.S. senators are bread on comity and consensus (well, until the debate on judges is over anyway). Frankly, it might be another reason why senators make such god-awful presidential candidates.

Anne Applebaum on Newsweek. It's bad enough that the rush to condemn the magazine ends up giving rioting Islamists a pass on the deaths they caused (notable exception: Andrew McCarthy -- Andy, can't wait for Weekend At Gitmo's!). Not recognizing that if Newsweek is the straw that broke the camel's back (forgive the culturally-insensitive analogy), who's responsible for piling the rest of the stuff up? Oh, yeah, just some random, low-level guys in the military ranks. Right.

Jim Pinkerton has carefully nuanced take that sees no heroes anywhere.
