At the Belmont Club, there is a very amazing analysis of liberalism's demise in the era of the "new reality". The politically correct, liberal world of Jimmy Carter was killed on September 11th, 2001. Despite all of John Kerry's efforts, Humpty can't be put back together again. We are engaged in a war with the new barbarians, and while we could retreat into our fortress, they are coming after us. I would prefer to go after them, where they live. We are not doing everything right, but fighting the enemy in the Middle East and Africa is superior to fighting them in the United States.
