I sent out a test e-mail to a bunch of friends, I said, “Look, I’ve kind of been out of it.” I got to play golf with Jack Nicklaus yesterday, by the way, at the Ernie Els for Autism charitable fundraiser out here at PGA National where they played the Honda Classic.

Anyway, I sent a bunch of people a test e-mail, “Hey, I’ve kind of been out of it. Can somebody tell me why we’re in Libya?” Nobody knows. The regime’s put out two or three different reasons why. Well, why do you think we’re in Libya, Snerdley?
We got Farrakhan saying, “Who the hell do you think you are?” We got a bunch of liberal Democrats demanding the Nobel Peace Prize be withdrawn from Obama. A bunch of leftists are saying, “Gosh, he’s no different than Bush.” This is a final insult after not closing Club Gitmo and so forth. Why do you think we’re in Libya? (interruption) Not pressure from the press. Not pressure from the press. That’s where you’re wrong. He was not getting pressure from the press. I hold in my formerly nicotine-stained fingers — I love this — at Harvard they are discombobulated. Their whole worldview has just been turned upside down. This is a piece by David “Rodham” Gergen.
