Summation of the Left

Here is perhaps the most concise summation of the anti-Enlightenment Left ever made:

We are mapless, we are lost, and we are distracted by gusts of wishful thinking.

It's actually funnier, taken in context. It is from Nicholas von Hoffman, talking about the war in Afghanistan (hat tip: Instapundit) just before we completely routed the Taliban. Of course, he was attempting to describe the US war effort, but he somehow more aptly described his own ideological tribe. And this is worth noting, in a context when the anti-Enlightenment intellectuals are braying about our impending defeat in Iraq.
