A Pleasant Surprise

Over at The Weekly Standard, they've got a poll asking, basically, whether to bomb Iran. So far as I know, and looking at the spread of the results, there's been no concerted attempt to hijack the results. And so, even here, in what's arguably the nation's most hawkish political journal, 52% of respondents have answered with some form of "no, we should not bomb Iran." Unscientific? Sure. But if such a venture isn't attracting easy support amongst such likely allies, the Bush administration is going to have a truly tough time convincing the country at large.

I look forward to hearing what the National Review, Joe Lieberman Weekly (TNR), and supporting think tanks have to say as Bush/Cheney/Rove/Melman distribute their talking points on why opposition to a US preemptive attack on Iranian is supporting terrorism and deeply unpatriotic (including undermining the troops).

I have that 'fall 2002 feeling' all over again. We ARE supporting a diplomatic solution and working through the UN, right?

Oh, and Bush has 'no war plans on his desk', too. Riiiight.
