Power Line Editorial in Star Tribune

The Minneapolis Star-Tribune puts its paper "to bed" in the late evening prior to publication, so if one is inclined to be surfing the Internet (read: addicted to it) at that time, getting a sneak peak at the next day's edition is easy. While I was doing that today, I noticed a familiar name in the Op-Ed section -- Scott W. Johnson, the Big Trunk at Power Line. Big Trunk's post on Walter Mondale will be published in tomorrow's edition:

Those of us who lived as adults through the four years of the Carter administration in which Walter Mondale last served as an important public official may find Mondale's statements especially strange. We recall how President Jimmy Carter proudly announced that the United States had overcome its "inordinate fear of communism," famously planted a kiss on the cheek of Leonid Brezhnev, and then reacted with shock when the Soviet Union invaded Afghanistan.

His original post was spot-on and this column is as well. (I noted the earlier post here.) Read the whole thing; it's the most intelligent writing they'll have all week.
