An Ostrich Lifts Its Head

Over at National Review, it seems they've been receiving their daily dose of TCR. Zingers like this one by Andrew Stuttaford are becoming more common:
I understand realpolitik as much as the next person – and I also understand that its necessities can mean that democratic states can have to keep some ugly company, but reading accounts like this underlines the fact that when George Bush goes that extra mile to kow-tow to Riyadh, even holding hands with the tyrants responsible for horrors such as this, he disgraces himself – and embarrasses America.
And because this sort of stridency doesn't happen in a vacuum at a place like National Review these days, you don't think the timing of this is a coincidence, do you?
