A Few Wails

by Jay Nordlinger

I’ll tell you what the world hates: “If George W. Bush had said that, the media would be all over him.” “If George W. Bush had done that, they’d be crying bloody murder.” The Left rolls its eyes; much of the Right regards it as uncouth.

Tough noogs (if that’s the correct spelling): If it were George W. Bush making the political hay out of the SEALs’ elimination of bin Laden that President Obama is, the American media, the Democratic party, and maybe even a few righties would be calling for his impeachment.

And while I’m being Joe Crybaby Republican: If the John Edwards trial were about a onetime Republican vice-presidential nominee, rather than a onetime Democratic vice-presidential nominee, we’d be hearing a whole lot more about that trial, and its attendant sordid details.

Okay, I’ll dry my tears . . .

P.S. If George W. Bush had picked off thousands of people with drones . . .

P.P.S. If a Republican first lady, instead of Michelle Obama, had said, “This president has brought us out of the dark and into the light” . . .

P.P.P.S. . . .

The Corner

The one and only.
