IT’S GONE BY SO FAST….IT

IT’S GONE BY SO FAST….IT SEEMS LIKE IT’S ONLY BEEN FIVE MONTHS….I’ve been blogging for six months today. Here’s part of the second post I ever wrote:

Tony [Blair] might have trouble bringing his party around, but he will. His position on Saddam is grounded in genuine conviction, and he’ll stay on board unless the Bushies’ treatment of him deteriorates so far that he finally gets pissed off and tells them to bugger off just out of sheer frustration.

That stands up pretty well, don’t you think? Blair hasn’t exactly brought Labor around, but so far he’s prevented a full-scale revolt anyway, which means that I was closer to the mark than John Derbyshire.
