*gasp* No! Surely not! President Bush and Karl Rove sat listening to Norman Podhoretz for roughly 45 minutes at the White House as the patriarch of neoconservatism argued that the United States should bomb Iran’s nuclear facilities.

How do you revive a dead career? Well, you can work hard, write good music, tour your rear-end off, and earn yourself a new audience.
