Garry Trudeau's Doonesbury strips about B.D., who went to fight in Iraq and lost a leg in the war, were attacked as unpatriotic by Bill O'Reilly when they were first published. Now the strips have been collected in a book, with an introduction by John McCain. Kurt Andersen reviews the collection in today's New York Times -- and writes the most politically naive sentence I've read this year:

Getting John McCain to write an introduction to the book was the perfectly shrewd move to inoculate himself against any further carping from O'Reillyland.

Uh, Kurt? If you really believe that, maybe you should talk to a few more Republicans.
