Quote of the Day

From Bill O'Reilly, March 13, 2003:
"Summing up, Jacques Chirac is our enemy, and the pope, well, I don't know what to think."

Chris will now hijack Nick's post and add some brief blogging to it (no time for a real post with two exams, a paper, a project, and of course, a story to promote on campus.) I've been so disconnected from the world in the aftermath of my computer crashing that I didn't realize there was an Opinion Duel going on! Policy wonks delight! (note, start reading from the bottom)

Money quote because it uses the word "solipsist":

In the column I refer to, you devoted 1,347 words — which would consume nearly a page and a half in TNR — to my piece, quoting from it at length and disputing my logic virtually point by point, under the headline "THE WORLD ACCORDING TO CHAIT." How is that not a response? Is there some word, other than "response," I should have used to describe its relationship to my piece that wouldn't lead you to imply that I'm some kind of deluded solipsist?
