Helen Thomas, the only person whose continued animation is more shocking than Keith Richards, complains that while Bush has met four times with Israeli PM Ariel Sharon, he has yet to meet even once with PA Barbarian-in-Cheif Yasser Arafat.

Here’s some fun trivia for you: During the entire duration of WWII, Roosevelt met with British PM Winston Churchill on board a destroyer, in Casablanca, at Terhan — and yet never once met with Mussulini. Can you imagine the effrontary? Roosevelt, the most powerful man in the world at that time, lavished attention on our closest ally while virtually ignoring the tinpot dictator of a small, weak country who was once silly enough to declare war on our ally.

It’s exactly this kind of short-sighted behavior that gives unilateralism a good name, and we can’t have that.
