The Warrior Waltzes

The triumphalist Warrior Waltz, all furs, fantasies, shiny shoes, tuxedos... in today's NYT Bob Herbert accuses W. of being tone-deaf given the mess in Iraq, but it'd be more accurate to say that W.'s got perfect pitch when it comes to his own constituencies (and that's all that matters, no?). That Herbert (and I) hear different notes and tunes than W. does is hardly surprising (we all read from different scores); that W.'s insurgency would chose to brazenly rub our noses in our own irrelevance in such a way is also hardly surprising, just depressing.

His pride before our fall, I guess.
