Nothing good ever came of a Democrat
It's of course claimed, loudly and repeatedly, that terrorists and tyrants of various hues are pining for a Kerry victory tonight (scroll down for Bruce Anderson's interpretation of this tune). It's also, of course, not true (or at least not really true--please don't make me resort to pointing out that reality is complex). The following, from a piece by Adar Primor in today's Ha'aretz, is only the latest piece of counter-evidence:
Must get round to digging up those articles in The Guardian that quote various security analysts and a British diplomat on al Qaeda's preference for Bush before the US slides into civil war proper.
"Even more surprising is the representative of the 'Axis of Evil,' Hassan Rowhani, the secretary of Iran's National Security Council, who expressed his objections to the candidacy of John Kerry ('Nothing good ever came of a Democrat'), and support for Bush, who 'in spite of his hardline and baseless rhetoric, has not taken any dangerous action against Iran.'"
