To use an ornithological analogy, finding the following sentences in the pages of The Australian is akin to spotting specimens of the Paradise Parrot, last seen in SE Queensland in 1928 and presumed extinct:
"[Obama's] only obvious failure has been Israel. He misjudged the intransigence of Benjamin Netanyahu and the power of his support on Capitol Hill. But he will keep persisting in trying to rescue the Jewish state from the perils of its own hubris and paranoia."
No, of course it wasn't Greg (Jerusalem Prize) Sheridan - some things never change. It's US 'libertarian conservative' columnist Andrew Sullivan in his review of Obama's first year in office, A pragmatist of ease & grace (The Sunday Times/The Australian, 21/1/10), and it's about as good as it gets in Murdoch fishwrapper.
