AND WHO WOULDN'T LIKE TO?:

Triangulating Scarlett Johansson (Andrew Breitbart, December 29, 2008, Washington Times)

As for the current war on terrorism, there never was any chance of Hollywood liberals supporting it as long as George W. Bush was president. Wrong though it is, it is simply an Article of the Liberal Faith that Mr. Bush stole the election in Florida (look at movies such as the HBO film "Recount") and his entire White House reign was illegitimate - "not my president" and all that. But if Mr. Obama - "my president" - is prosecuting the war, that fundamentally changes the mind-set.

On the precipice of victory in Iraq, and recommitting to destroy the Taliban in Afghanistan, continuing military victories on a Democratic president's watch would be extraordinarily transforming for a party that pretends to thrive in the shadow of George McGovern.

Throwing antiwar agitators Markos Moulitsas and Arianna Huffington under the biodiesel bus would be a historic act that would cause moderates and traditional liberals to rejoice. What would the nutroots at the Huffington Post and the Daily Kos do: Draft Cindy Sheehan again? Or support the Republican next go-around?

Most conservatives just want to win and don't care who gets the credit. If Mr. Obama crushes al Qaeda over the next four years, he will be re-elected, and he will win over many Republicans, including Mr. Bush, who only cares about winning. Not who gets the credit.


Speaking of his magic powers....
