    When Good News Is Bad News

    Here we go again. Maybe.

    Some of the naysayers among us -- the hirsute dregs and burnt-out leftovers from the '60s and those who wish they were -- yearn for one more round of "Vietnam." There's a cult of wannabes among us who imagine that paradise will be one endless antiwar rally "for sex, drugs and revolution."

    Others rally around the suicide craters of the war in Iraq as the focus of their hatred of George W. Bush. They don't necessarily have anything against the goal of making America safe from Islamist jihad, but they hate George W. more than they love their country. They endlessly pursue the loveless political orgasm. Dick Durbin, the goofy gnome of Illinois, comes to mind.

    Still others only want attention, eager for the warmth of the spotlight and willing to settle for the shadow of others just to make the scene. Chuck Hagel, who wants to be John McCain when he grows up, comes to mind.

    Chuck tells U.S. News & World Report that he's confident that we're losing the war to make America safe from jihad, that things aren't getting better in Iraq, they're only getting worse. "The White House is completely disconnected from reality," he says. "It's like they're just making it up as they go along." Only Chuck is real.
