From this week’s column:

It was a great moment. A Kodak moment. And unlike the other Kodak moments from this war — think Saddam’s tumbling statue and Jessica Lynch’s “rescue” — this one was not created by the image masters at Karl Rove Productions.

But this Kodak moment, however moving, should not be allowed to erase all that came before it, leaving us unprepared for all that may come after it.

I’m sorry to kill the White House’s buzz — and the press corps’ contact high — but the triumphalist fog rolling across the land has all the makings of another “Mission Accomplished” moment.

Forgive me for trotting out Santayana’s shopworn dictum that those who forget the past are doomed to repeat it but, for god’s sake people, can’t we even remember last week?

Read the column here.



I would never have thought I could agree with Arianna Huffington consistently.
