And The Winner Is...Oy

Via John Derbyshire at The Corner

While we are all thrilled to watch Hillary and the the lovely Barry Obama beat each other senseless on a daily basis, the thrill is soon gone when we realize that the likely beneficiary of all that whacking is the guy over there on the left.

John Derbyshire over on The Corner points out the following:

According to Fox News, according to Andy:

McCain said the United States' goal in fighting Islamic extremists should be "to win the hearts and minds of the vast majority of moderate Muslims who do not want their future controlled by a minority of violent extremists.

"In this struggle, scholarships will be far more important than smart bombs.

"So–o–o–o, Senator, you favor bringing in even more students from Muslim Middle East nations —even more than the 15,000 extra Saudi students the President favors. Is that right?

What a great idea, Senator. What a wonderful, visionary idea. I just hope the flight schools can handle them all.

Yeah, if whoever gets the Dem nod is crippled and can't win we get this guy, instead. Besides the above bit of brilliance, today he also said,

"We need to listen to the views and respect the collective will of our democratic allies."

While I understand the need to toss around diplomatic blather, I can't help but wonder what "collective will" he's talking about? The kind that comes out of the UN? The kind of "will" you find in Spain? In Germany? Italy? This kind of claptrap is the type of drivel that the State Department and a world full of America-haters love to hear.

Sometimes I despair.
