I stopped reading in the fourth paragraph when he listed other liberals who – he claims – were suddenly bloodthirstty. Here’s his astonishing list of ‘liberals’:
- Thomas Freidman
- Fareed Zacharia
- George Packer
- Jeffrey Goldberg
- Richard Cohen
- Andrew Sullivan (he’s really reaching, isn’t he)
- Paul Berman
- Christopher Hitchens
- Kenneth Pollack
I stopped reading right there. Dishonest then, dishonest now. No link.
