Come to think of it, they did. “Monica Lewinsky: Feminists failed me.” She should talk to some conservative women for whom feminists also don’t care one whit.

Come to think of it, with the XL Keystone pipeline in the news, she might want to hide for a while. “According to the SMOR poll, based on a survey of 600 likely Louisiana voters conducted April 28-30, 2014, Senator Mary Landrieu continues to drop, with her positive rating now hitting an all-time low of 39% and her negative numbers skyrocketing to 58%. . . . Senator Landrieu’s job performance rating continues to deteriorate. Her positive ratings have dropped to an all-time low of 39% in this current poll. Her negative ratings have increased by 30 percentage points in a little over a year and a half (from 28% in September 2012 to 58% in this current poll).” Maybe the Dems should have mounted a primary challenge.

Come to think of it, the president has only himself to blame. Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) on the Benghazi select committee: “This investigation would not be necessary had the Obama administration come clean. This investigation would not be necessary had the Obama administration complied with congressional subpoenas. This investigation would not be necessary had the Obama administration not misled the Congress, the American people and the media about what happened in Benghazi.”

Come to think of it, he is going to crush them. “Mitch McConnell may have neutered the Senate Conservatives Fund. The organization, founded by former Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) to defeat or dragoon the GOP’s old guard into stauncher conservatism, appears to have been silenced. That’s in line with a warning handed down by the Senate minority leader, who told the SCF after it endorsed his primary challenger, Matt Bevin, that the establishment would ‘crush [it] everywhere.’ Now, the SCF has gone silent in Kentucky just two weeks ahead of the primary and dropped off the air in Mississippi, where it backed state Sen. Chris McDaniel’s June 3 primary against incumbent Sen. Thad Cochran (R).” But do the SCF’s donors get a refund?

Come to think of it, that’s sort of unfair to “The Gong Show,” which at least had a cheery host. “If  the president wishes to withdraw to America’s own territory, he should try to get a mandate to do so after a suitably comprehensive policy debate and give America’s allies adequate notice to fill the vacuum America’s withdrawal leaves. What we have now is a Great Power behaving like a schizophrenic mouse and speaking through a twice-chosen leader whose promises of containment are a dissonant misnomer for the abandonment of the agreed American national interests of 70 years. An argument can be made for such a course, though I would not subscribe to it, but no argument can be made for this administration’s transformation of foreign policy into a Gong Show.” Read the whole thing.

Come to think of it, the administration has wasted five years on the “peace process” sham. “The Palestinians see themselves as part of the local majority Arabic-speaking Sunni Muslim culture. From this point of view, the establishment of a non-Muslim sovereignty in Israel was not only an injustice, it was also an anomaly. Israel, being an anomaly, is therefore bound eventually to be defeated and disappear. So there is no need to reconcile to it, with all the humiliation therein. This core perception leads to the momentary embrace of all kinds of unlikely strategies, which are invested with tremendous hopes. . . . [The PA's] credo was perfectly rendered . . . [as]: ‘On a certain day everything would be obliterated and instantaneously reconstructed and the new inhabitants would leave, as if by magic, the land they had despoiled; in this way will justice be dispensed to the victims, on that day when the presence of God shall again make itself felt.’ ” No, it’s really got nothing to do with settlements.

Come to think of it, Obama never “pivoted.” “The Obama administration’s ‘Asia pivot’ rests on a strategy of hope: a hope that America’s big wars are a thing of the past and a confidence that underfunding defense requirements will not jeopardize the lives of American soldiers. However, if our record of predicting future military engagements is any indication, there is little reason to accept such wishful thinking. Despite all the talk about the ‘Asia pivot,’ draconian defense cuts are already here and they are eroding the U.S. Navy’s decisive advantage.”
