Modest Proposal Reloaded
As most ideas, no matter how preposterous, will eventually get their day in the court of public opinion, it doesn't surprise me that someone else latched on to the obvious but rather crude approach to reducing the chances for nuclear war. Who else but Instapundit stated:
"Nor do I think that high-profile diplomacy, or an invasion, is an appropriate response. We should be responding quietly, killing radical mullahs and iranian atomic scientists, ..."Predictably, the unctuous neo-tard radio host Spew Spewitt agrees with the Instapundit. From my earlier post, I thought I demonstrated how easily one can emulate at face-value the thought processes of the keyboard commandos. Fortunately, Greenwald does a nice job in explaining which direction this will take us:
If we are to be a country that now sends death squads into nations with whom we are not at war to slaughter civilians -- scientists and religious figures -- what don't we do? American credibility in the world has fallen to literally unimaginable depths over the last six years, but it is critical to remember that with a President never to face the electorate again, many Bush supporters -- and certainly the White House itself -- are headed in the direction of increasingly extremist and bloodthirsty measures. And it is hard to overstate what a complete disregard they have -- really an intense contempt -- for the values that have long defined this country.Wait long enough and the satire becomes the reality.
