"The President vowed in 2008 that he wouldn't raise taxes on anyone earning less than $250,000 a year, but that's looking to be as forlorn a hope as peace in Palestine," the Wall Street Journal says in an editorial today. That's a clunker, given that there is no place on the map now called Palestine -- there's Israel and there's the Palestinian Authority. And also given that the past decades have seen the conclusion of peace treaties between Israel and Egypt and between Israel and Jordan, and that the past year has been so far, thankfully, free of large-scale suicide bombings of Israeli discos, restaurants, and shopping malls.
