Dickey's Nuts

Christopher Dickey in Newsweek:

For any of us who lived through the cold war, Bush’s attempts to equate the scattershot writings of Osama bin Laden’s right-hand man, Ayman al-Zawahiri, with … the Soviet empire are just mind-boggling. In his Veteran’s Day address …, Bush started four paragraphs with the phrase “like the ideology of communism.” He longs transparently for the challenge of an Evil Empire, like the one his idol Ronald Reagan confronted, whether or not it exists.

This is nuts…

This grab from Dickey's article The Terrorist Temptation is after the same point I was trying to make -- albeit with less precision -- here.
