Froomkin Nails It

Dan Froomkin comes up with a beauty in his column today:

In a soaring, eloquent, upbeat speech from the marble podium at the United Nations, President Bush yesterday put forth the purest distillation yet of his foreign policy views. And depending on your own world view, I’m betting you either loved it or hated it.

…If the whole speech was a litmus test, this one sentence was the clincher:

“We know that dictators are quick to choose aggression, while free nations strive to resolve differences in peace,” Bush said.

Some people see irony there. Others don’t.
