More thana century and a half ago, one congressman could see George W Bush coming.

If you've never read the header of Moderate Man's blog, you should. It comes from Representative Abraham Lincoln in his opposition to the Mexican War and a president that tried to hide his reasons for going to war.

Just the odd parallel there.

For more of Lincoln's cutting lines, go here. My particular favourite:
Republicans are for both the man and the dollar, but in case of conflict the man before the dollar.
Would that that were true today.
