Katie Couric: Neocon?

Is Katie Couric Jewish? We, the crack young staff of “The Hatemonger’s Quarterly,” sure didn’t think so. After all, she looks about as Jewish as Conan O’Brien. Or, for that matter, Conan the Barbarian.

And yet, to the Daily Kossacks and other purveyors of zany Internet leftism, Katie Couric simply must be Jewish. The reason? She thinks things are looking far, far better in Iraq.

As some Jew named Matt Drudge reports on his obscure pro-Zionist “website,” Ms. Couric has recently used her (mini-)bully pulpit at CBS News to report from Baghdad. And, as far as Ms. Couric is concerned, the improvements in the country are dramatic.

In fact, a CBS affiliate reports the following:

We hear so much about things going bad, but real progress has been made there in terms of security and stability," Couric said Tuesday. "I mean, obviously, infrastructure problems abound, but Sunnis and U.S. forces are working together. They banded together because they had a common enemy: al Qaeda."…

"The spike in police has really been significant," Couric said. "The incidents in Iraq have gone down dramatically."

Well, well, well: Sign Ms. Couric up for a spot at the American Enterprise Institute! Give her Irving Kristol’s office! She’s a regular hardcore Bush patsy, isn’t she?

Although of course, dear reader, it’s far too early to tell, it appears as if America and its allies’ perseverance in Iraq may just pay off. Perhaps we’ll establish a functioning democracy there after all.

This should be the hope of all moral human beings. A stable, powerful democratic Iraq will be a great boon for the Middle East and a great boon for the world. For this reason, this part of the world’s odious thugocracies—principally Iran and Syria—are fighting very hard to ensure our failure. Ah, but, in the inimitable words of the Beatles, things are getting better all the time.

What will the loony Left say about this mainstream media apostasy? Will they attempt to frog-march Ms. Couric from the hallowed halls of left-wing journalism?

We’re not sure. But we have the funny feeling that a few left-wing “webloggers” will pontificate on Ms. Couric’s purported Jewishness and her nefarious ties to Israel. After all, isn’t that what a serious political movement does?
