The Great Overreach by Jonah Goldberg on National Review Online:Comment: A good article by Goldberg, but it seems to me that he's celebrating prematurely. This is far, far from over and plenty of pork and left-wing payoffs will be in a "compromise" measure.
"The stimulus bill has failed. Barack Obama has failed. The Trojan Horse of Hope and Change crashed into the guardrail of reality, revealing an army of ideologues and activists inside.
Now, before I continue, let me say that Barack Obama will still be popular, he will still get things done, and he will declare victory after signing a stimulus bill.
But Obama’s moment is gone, and politics is about nothing if not moments."
