If you stop by over here at B.D. more out of morbid curiosity, shaking your head in resignation and often thinking I'm wrong on the issues, this guy is a pretty good antidote well worth reading. Yeah, it's not only Yglesias who is talking about a good deal of triumphalism in this space of late. Consider me duly chastened--but still, given the scale of recent events--mostly unrepentant truth be told.

The loyal opposition and all....

One more thing, I don't fault you for the optimism and crowing. A little is to be expected on the heels of such interesting developments across the region. But, as you know, its back to business, and a very tricky business at that.

I don't fault you for the crowing either, Greg. It'll come in handy later.

Well, as to 'later'; there will always be a later.

This business will never be absolutely 'finished'; so you may as well crow while you can, because Lord knows your ankles will be bitten when you stumble, even though the business is not finished.
