Now, here's a guy who's changed

Speaking of changing political opinions, I just found out that one of Charles Krauthammer's earliest political gigs was as a speechwriter for Walter Mondale (see bio on left sidebar in the link).

I've met Charles Krauthammer. His son was in my Latin class.

In the run-up to the Iraq war, he came to my school and debated Norm Ornstien about our decision to invade. Krauthammer ended the event by turning to the assembled students and saying "I promise you, Iraq has weapons of amss destruction. If we don't invade, all of us will be killed. When we go there, we'll be greeted as heroes, the country will be secure, and WMDs will be found. If any of that isn't true six months after we invade, I'll come back and apologize."

Needless to say, I haven't seen him since.

I'm surprised you list yourself as a former Democrat who was 'mugged by reality on 9/11'. What reality would that be? it was Reagan and Bush I we trained and funded bin Laden and Bush II who let him escape while still cozying up to the Saudis. Seems contradictory to me...

We didn't train or fund bin Laden.

And Bush 43 didn't "let him escape".

Have serious problems with reality?
