OpinionJournal - Best of the Web Today: "If there is any reason at all for patriotic Americans to consider voting for a man on the basis of his foreign endorsements, it is that he may be better able to persuade those leaders to act in accord with American interest. Zapatero's contemptuous attitude toward Kerry gives the lie to that argument. The new Spanish leader is unwilling to consider keeping his country's commitment to Iraq even though it would probably help Kerry politically."

Taranto is beginning to iritate me. I know he's a smart man, and very witty, but his analysis of everything important is so simplistic. Zapatero's comment, while I think it is dumb, is the only possible one. His party ran on the idea of leaving Iraq, and if they had won in an absence of the Madrid attacks, they would have behaved the same way. He can't suddenly change his mind to help a foreign politician win election.

At least he finally stopped that Eponymy.
