Caligula's horse. Jay Nordlinger tries to account for the folly:

- To make the Republican party look bad?
- Because he is Obama’s choice, and Obama is the One?
- Because he has expressed antipathy to Israel?
- Because he has advocated almost the softest possible line toward Iran and its satellites (Hezbollah, Hamas)?
- Because the conservatives are against him, and therefore the Left must be for him?
- Because a Republican war hero is just the right man to preside over the gutting of the Defense Department?
