"€œGod willing, with the force of God behind it, we shall soon experience a world
without the United States and Zionism."€ -- Iran President Ahmadi-Nejad

From Opinion Journal's Best of the Web:

"Earlier this week came the unpleasant news that Tony Snow, the White House press secretary, has had a recurrence of cancer. Snow was treated for colon cancer two years ago, and the disease has now spread to his liver.

Over at the Angry Left site Daily Kos, a poster named WinSmith spends some 1,300 words explaining that he's really quite indifferent to Snow's condition:

Are we better than they are? Of course we are. Theirs' [sic] is a movement so morally bankrupt that they'll send more American troops to die in a civil war because they can't even admit to themselves they made a mistake.

On that most profound issue, life and death itself, they don't care. If you think we can somehow convince them that we're not who their propaganda empire tells them we are, you're wrong.

So again, let me be crystal clear about this. I am not happy Tony Snow has cancer. I'm just not praying for him.

He's not in my "thoughts." I have no empathy for him. He has been an accomplice and an apologist for a failed political movement that has unleashed tremendous pain and upheaval on this planet.

I will save my emotions for those who deserve it.

You can see why they're better, can't you? And just imagine how long the post would be if WinSmith gave a darn!"

The lovable left. They care so much.

Speaking of good guys. How 'bout them Clintons? They're always willing to give a hand out to those in need. Also from OJ's Best of the Web:

Great Moments in Political Honesty
From the Web site of KCCI-TV in Des Moines, Iowa:

Former Iowa Gov. Tom Vilsack gave Sen. Hillary Clinton his endorsement for her presidential campaign.

The Clinton campaign has promised Vilsack to help pay off a $400,000 campaign debt he built up during his run for the White House. . . .

The campaign said there is no connection between Vilsack's endorsement and their commitment to help pay off his campaign debt.

"We're sure Mrs. Clinton would have been happy to pay off Vilsack's debts even if he'd endorsed Barack Obama."

I'm equally sure. (Bold emphasis mine -HH.)
