Jeane Kirkpatrick, RIP

The Democrat who was mugged by reality, who was a forceful voice against Communism, foreign anti-Americanism and American defeatism died on Friday. The Monk remembers her "blame America first" denunciation of "San Francisco Democrats" from her speech at the 1984 Republican Convention. She was also one of the three best ambassadors to the UN of the US since 1970, with Moynihan and Bolton.

Norman Podhoretz remembers her at the link above.
