It’s right here.
UPDATE: Believe it or not, there’s a minor tiff in the right-o-sphere about the rescue. The normally ferocious Ace of Spades noted that Obama gave the go-ahead for force. A blogger called The Other McCain answered with a lampoon headline suggesting that Ace wanted to rob the SEALs of their credit (scroll down to the big purple letters). Ace’s blog has this quote by H.L. Mencken: “Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit upon his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats.” In fact the logo includes the skull and crossbones: maybe he’s squishy on pirates. But he celebrates the Easter rescue with a photo of a skull surrounded by crawling flames; I’d say he’s really glad those pirates are dead. Still, he mentioned Obama without attacking him, so that means he’s gay.
Reading the fellows is like watching bright 10-year-olds play in a tree fort. They’re so lively! Ace’s logo isn’t a plain “Ace of Spades,” it’s “Ace of Spades HQ.” You have to appreciate the touch.
If liberals could be like wingnuts, we might describe Obama’s role this way, with a terse rat-a-tat: POTUS told the SEALs to do what they had to do, and they went ahead and did it. In other words, way it should be.
But we’re liberals. So we clear our throats, lean into the mike, and read from a wilted piece of paper that the system has worked appropriately, including the dispensation of presidential authority for the use of military force, and we’re happy that the operation has concluded successfully and with no loss of innocent life. Our best wishes to Captain Phillips and his family.
The Ace-McCain contretemps comes by way of Moderate Voice, a blog that is pretty much what you would expect from the title.
