The KGB Wants You to Wave This Flag Now, Please

There's a lot to think about in this article from the American Conservative. I'm not familiar with the writer, but he makes (among many interesting points) the interesting point that Bush's talk of a global democratic revolution and the end of tyranny smacks of the sort of thing that would have been totally anathema to Republicans in the past, given the usually negative, sexy, French connotations of "revolution." This is probably the only piece from this otherwise uninteresting publication I'll post, but you should give it a read, if only for the revelation that the Ukrainian secret police totally stage-managed the Orange Revolution we all like to imagine happened spontaneously.
