Time to invoke the "Blind Squirrel Rule"

There is an old saying, that even a blind squirrel occasionally finds a nut which is used to explain it when someone unexpectedly gets something right. I don't often agree with Richard Cohen, in fact he is almost always wrong. Today, however, I think Cohen stumbled across a correct point.
There are times when George Bush sorely disappoints. Just when you might expect him to issue a malapropian explanation, pander to his base or simply not have a clue about what he is talking about, he does something so right, so honest and, yes, so commendable, that -- as Arthur Miller put it in "Death of a Salesman" -- "attention must be paid." Pay attention to how he has refused to indulge anti-Arab sentiment over the Dubai ports deal.

Would that anyone could say the same about many of the deal's critics. Whatever their concerns may be, whatever their fears, they would not have had them, expressed them or seen them in print had the middle name of the United Arab Emirates been something else. After all, no one goes nuts over Germany, the country where some of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorists lived and attended school.
