Atlanticist small talk is all that's left

Mark Steyn is right (again), on Bush's trip to Europe:
"So what would you do in Bush's shoes? Slap 'em around a bit? What for? Where would it get you? Or would you do exactly what he's doing? Climb into the old soup-and-fish, make small talk with Mme Chirac and raise a glass of champagne to the enduring friendship of our peoples: what else is left? This week we're toasting the end of an idea: the death of 'the West'."
Brilliant as always. Read the whole thing.
