An Epiphany

AN EPIPHANY….Kathryn Jean Lopez today, commenting on the bullying and dishonest editorial style of the Wall Street Journal toward anyone they disagree with:

It’s nice to be talked about, but I do wish the Wall Street Journal wasn’t so hostile and insulting when talking about us and immigration.

Lopez in 2005, commenting on how grating George Bush’s grade school speaking style is when you disagree with him on something (Harriet Miers, in this case):

I hate this groaning-when-the-president speaks reflex I’ve had all week on this issue.

Isn’t it remarkable how quickly the obvious becomes really, really obvious when you’re on the receiving end of the conservative noise machine?
