Quote of the Day

QUOTE OF THE DAY….Glenn Reynolds on opposition to the war:

The problem is that our political and journalistic classes lack sufficient patriotism to promote self-discipline, or perhaps sufficient self-discipline to allow them to act patriotically.

Wait a second. I thought conservatives didn’t make accusations of non-patriotism? I’m confused. I guess now it’s OK. Does that mean I get to accuse conservatives of being baby killers again?

Anyway, I’m certainly glad to see that that whole stab-in-the-back thing was just a figment of my liberal imagination. That’s a relief.
