THANKS TO THE MIRACLE OF DIGITAL VIDEO RECORDING, I’ve been watching a lot more of Larry Kudlow’s show lately, and he’s definitely on a roll — unlike some righty television and radio shows that have seemed in a funk since the elections, he’s stayed sharp and on-point.

Tonight he had Steven Emerson on, talking about jihadists in the United States — the topic of Emerson’s new book, which he was of course promoting. I’m inclined to believe that there’s a lot of money and a lot of highly dubious influence flowing from Saudi Arabia and Iran (mostly the former) to the United States. But, still, not much in the way of action, five years since 9/11. Why? I’m not entirely sure.
