Credit When It's Due

Naomi Klein has a way of forever annoying me, like when she wrote "Bring Najaf to New York" last year, but I like to give credit when it's due.

She writes a nice little burn in an issue or two back of The Nation, concerning the Bush Administration's creation of an Office of the Coordinator for Reconstruction and Stabilization, which will " be able to coordinate three full-scale reconstruction operations in different countries "at the same time," each lasting "five to seven years."

Her response:
Fittingly, a government devoted to perpetual pre-emptive deconstruction now has a standing office of perpetual pre-emptive reconstruction.
Nicely done.
