You can tell how hard a pig is stuck by how loud it squeals

Country wisdom describes this screed in Slate. Hysterical denunciation of Bush's fortitude should be welcomed. Bush may not be Reagan, but he has some Reagan in him. We just have to accept that if he (and we) win in Iraq, it will be the Cold War writ small (Cold war? What Cold War?). Not a big deal, no one ever said it was, blah, blah, blah. Still, it's rather bracing to see Bush be Reagan.
