The Flag of the World

-G. K. Chesterton, Orthodoxy

This here blog is a glimpse or two or three at the condition of the 'fortress of our family' through the eyes Timothy Goddard, a Christian writer with an unhealthy interest in politics living in the Puget Sound area.

Mending the lie... then breaking it
John Kerry did a surprisingly good job of mending the lie recently, far better than I had hoped, though not as good as I suggested. It is unfortunate to note that he didn't actually say this out loud or on camera, which would have done far more good, but it's good stuff nonetheless:
Americans know that all who serve in Iraq – soldier and civilian alike – do so in an effort to build a better future for Iraqis. These horrific attacks remind us of the viciousness of the enemies of Iraq’s future. United in sadness, we are also united in our resolve that these enemies will not prevail.
So that's good, right? But then along comes the other Massachussetts senator to screw things up, calling the Iraq war "George Bush's Vietnam." The Left giveth and the Left taketh away. This is why I cannot trust the Left.

Oh, and guess which statement our enemies are more likely to hear about? Thanks, Ted.
