From the FreeBeacon:
Ernest Hemingway defined courage as grace under pressure.
One might think a terrorist detonating a suicide vest with his children in tow rather than facing sweet American justice did not live up to Hemingway’s description.
One would be wrong.
Just ask Max Boot, the Washington Post columnist who wrote upon the demise of Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi: “The assertion that Baghdadi died as a coward was, in any case, contradicted by the fact that rather than be captured, he blew himself up.”
Talk about reporting.
Talk about prose.
Annnnd now we’re dead.
"Boot personifies the age-old question: if a NeverTrumper doesn't remind us every 20 minutes he's a NeverTrumper, has he died?'

You're going to make me read this, aren't you?

Trust us, you’ll want to read the whole thing.
At some point, you’re supposed to grow beyond being fully booted.

For a second, I thought you lost your mind.

To be fair, many of us in any sort of conservative media have lost our minds a little bit over the past few years … it happens. But this, this was brilliance.
