Quote of the Day

It is time for us to break, once and for all, with the Leninist reasoning that has been served up for so long by the useful idiots of a radical Islam immersed in the sociology of poverty and frustration. And most of all it is the moment, now or never, for a calm resolve among all believers in democracy to look evil in the face without losing ourselves in the catastrophic measures of a state of emergency. France can and must erect dikes--but not the walls of a besieged fortress. -- Bernard-Henri L&eacure;vy

I loved the quote. Elsewhere in the piece, Monsieur veers into "we have to be careful not to overreact." Perhaps it is that famous Continental nuance to which I am unaccustomed.

But the fulsome stand against "lets give them more stately benefits" was stirring.

(Ever notice the resemblance to Ward Churchill? Maybe she really is 1/128th native American!)
