World Peace!

One of the jokes in Miss Congeniality is that all the women in the beauty pageant want world peace.  Except for Sandra Bullock's character, the undercover FBI agent.  She has a far more realistic goal.  "Harsher punishment for parole violators."  Which isn't popular at all!  And then she adds, "And world peace" and everybody cheers.  

Kathleen Parker is like one of the beauty contestants in Miss Congeniality.  She's writing a column about world peace.  And she thinks it can happen, if we just elect Hillary as our next President.  This is a direct quote"She can save the world." 

One of the dangers of the left's disregard for religion is that it keeps coming up with religion-substitutes.  In 1966, Time magazine put up a provocative cover.  Is God Dead?  It upset everybody.  

Now people on the left talk about Obama as if he's the messiah.  And they're not even joking!

Well,Hillary did bring lasting peace to the middle east.Oh wait.You know,it's amazing how quickly John Kerry has screwed up all her good work.

The terms of Margaret Thatcher, Indira Ghandi, and Golda Meir would suggest otherwise.

As would the reign of Elizabeth I of England, Catherine the Great, and probably a lot more queens and empresses.
