Cancers of Varying Degrees

tracked back at: Common Folk Using Common Sense

A great column at NRO by Ned Rice about the failed war... on cancer. It's easy to see he's not talking about cancer, but another war most are concerned about these days. Here's the hint: it rhymes with "schmerrorism."

The analogy is a perfect one because not only is he pointing out the nature of the enemy (irrational, irreconcilable, and reproductive), but he's mocking the way in which people who oppose to the war have responded to it thinking something non-warlike could be done about it. This is fantastic reading for anyone interested in knowing how stupid the left sounds to people like me when they start whining about war being bad no matter what the cause.
