In the Mailbag....

A U.S. soldier serving in theater in the Middle East writes in:

The shocking intelligence/reasonability/credibility free-fall at Instapundit is closely mirrored among many close friends and family members -- exceptionally smart and serious people in all other areas of life! -- who are leaving low earth orbit over Bush and the war. All bad news is merely the product of left-wing media bias, the New York Times is a hotbed of actionable treason, the war is going incredibly well, the Middle East is stabilizing as democracy takes hold... And you just, you know, stare in horror: Who are you, and what have you done with my smart friend? I've had a running argument going with some Republican friends, and my father, who think that Rep. Steve King has made an excellent point about D.C. and Detroit being statistically far more dangerous than Baghdad. No facts will sway them; they simply know it to be true. Glenn Reynolds has caught a very common disease.
