Pwning Douthat

More

A must-read Fallows post. There is an understandable tendency for some of the sane right to keep pretending that there really is an equivalence in cynicism and partisanship between both Republicans and Democrats. But in truth, it's the GOP that is now overwhelmingly the most hypocritical, inconsistent and unprincipled. Fallows notes:

Charles Krauthammer is the classic example: forthrightly defending torture as, in limited circumstances, a necessary tool against terrorism, yet now outraged about "touching my junk" as a symbol of the intrusive state.

The same could be said for these once lauding Arab democracy who now tout the views of Arab autocrats as wisdom.
