Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

No Left Turns

There you go again. . .

I interrupt my hiatus from blogging (just another few days more on my annual Earth Day report, and then as Arnold says, "I’ll be back. . .") to note this outrage from today’s E.J. Dionne column on "patriotic liberalism" in the Washington Post. Never mind Dionne’s attempt to rescue this oxymoron. Try out this sentence for size:

Jimmy Carter’s campaign for human rights created the ideological underpinning of Ronald Reagan’s successful Cold War policies."

Cheer up. We can expect that about 10 years from now, liberals will start, grudgingly at first, to say that President Bush’s war policy since 9/11 was a success--helped all along, of course, by the liberals’ loyal opposition.
