Title: “Long War” is Breaking down into Tedium

Between the Patriot Act and it’s bureaucratic fakeries, and the war, and Dubai, and the Democrats – I don’t think he really had a point. Just that he didn’t know what else to write about. I have days like that. Either way – rule number 1 – always link to Steyn!
