Bush's Visit to Europe

But, in the broader sense vis-a-vis Europe, the administration is changing the tone precisely because it understands there can be no substance. And, if there's no substance that can be changed, what's to quarrel about? International relations are like ex-girlfriends: if you're still deluding yourself you can get her back, every encounter will perforce be fraught and turbulent; once you realise that's never gonna happen, you can meet for a quick decaf latte every six - make that 10 - months and do the whole hey-isn't-it-terrific-the-way-we're-able-to-be-such-great-friends routine because you couldn't care less. You can even make a few pleasant noises about her new romance (the so-called European Constitution) secure in the knowledge he's a total loser.

I love the way Mark Steyn writes.

The funny thing is, that's a pretty good description of how many people over here see the USA; i.e. just reverse the argument.

Cute. I liked that.

Do you mind if I add a link to your site from mine? I like the stuff you post and the colours are purdy, too. :-D

cheers

...except that the United States has no "new romance".

Linking: I have been intending to add the links to the sites (both blogs and columnists) that I regularly visit. Yours is on the list.
