The Corner

What Could Have Been

For years, I will regret having never come up with something brilliant and biting to say to al-Jubeir on the fly when he bumped into me (literally) at a D.C. party earlier this month. Actually, here’s an idea for the NRO store: “Corner In Your Pocket.” It would be a wallet card with the perfect things to say in such situations. You know, in case you find yourself at a UN Human Rights Committee benefit with all sorts of unsavory types. It would be like having John Derbyshire with you when you bump into Yasser Arafat… We could have different flavors too—no-holds-barred Derb, perfectly reasoned and reasonable Ramesh, edgy Jonah, etc…
