Shorter Safire

As faithful reader Bill notes, Safire wrote his own perfect shorter:

Either we stay until Iraq becomes a beacon of freedom or we pull out, thereby allowing terrorism to establish its main world sanctuary and its agents to come and get us.

Alternate version:

There are, of course, only exactly two ways to view any issue. In Iraq, there's either the defeatist Lefty way, or the Right way: staying there until one side is all dead.

Thanks, Bill (Safire), for reminding us that in the Bush II era there is no such thing as grey. And thanks, Bill (Simmon), for reminding us that Safire, like all wingers, is becoming a self-parody.


[Update: another shorter (inspired by faithful reader Mustang Bobby): "Domino Effect II - This Time, I Mean It."]
