Kevin Drum (aka Calpundit) offers some sane long-term perspective on the war. The media is overplaying the war itself (how much more non-stop coverage could World War II have merited?) but downplaying the aftermath. He also complains about the take-no-prisoners gloating of prowar commentators about domestic opponents of the president and the unseemly "fist-pumping" of the president. "War may be necessary sometimes," he writes, "but it's not something that a president should ever 'feel good' about." ... Meanwhile, still nothing from Salam Pax in Baghdad.
