Bill Kristol Word Scramble: Women Combat Reagan Panama Reagan!

by evanmcmurry

By this point, Kristol must have a “Reagan” key on his laptop:

It’s predictable that members of Congress—including many who privately know better—will be intimidated by the forces of gender correctness from arguing against women in harness. It’s predictable that the media will unfairly attack critics of women in combat units as failing to respect the achievements and sacrifices of our servicewomen who have served and are serving in harm’s way. It’s predictable that few in our political and cultural elites will speak up for biology, for common sense, or for decency or honor.

This is therefore a moment of opportunity. The political leader who takes on this fight will be mocked and scorned–almost as much as was Ronald Reagan in 1977, when he challenged the bipartisan elite consensus on the Panama Canal Treaty. As it happens, I suspect this fight will prove more winnable in Congress than the fight against the Panama Canal Treaty. But whatever happens in Congress, will any political leader step up, as Reagan once did, to fight the good fight?

No editing on my part involved. Those two paragraphs followed each other in the original, apparently under the guise of logical progression.

Hey, you know who else wrote crazy, irrational rants? Hitler.
