The kingdom, the power, and the glory

Taking the cult of Bush to new heights ("Bush of Arabia"), at least for someone who should know better, just one sentence from Fouad Ajami in the Wall Street Journal (subs. req'd; alt. free link) --

In his stoic acceptance of the burdens after 9/11, we were offered a reminder of how nations shelter behind leaders willing to take on great challenges.

And yes, that's the actual illustration with the article [UPDATE 16 DEC 2008: it gets reused!].

And yes, we're probably doing too much Wall Street Journal blogging. But the post-Bush political landscape seems to be driving them nuts.
