I Couldn’t Have Said It Better Myself

By Brian | November 17, 2006 | Share on Facebook

Famously liberal celebrity and blogger extraordinaire, Arianna Huffington, has apparently radically changed her view of President Bush and the war in Iraq:

And don’t shed any tears for [President Bush]. Even though [he] lost, this was still a big win for [him]. A victory for taking a stand — and for [his] leadership. Because that’s what real leaders do, they take stands. They listen to their hearts and follow their gut. If you only jump into the fights you’re sure you can win — notches in the W column that will look good on your political resume — you’re a hack, not someone who can move the party and the country forward. It’s not about trying to have a spotless record; it’s about knowing which battles are worth fighting, whatever the outcome.

Well, she makes a convincing argument, and it’s certainly more logical than the things she’s said in the past about the war, so I think that . . . Oh, wait a second! My bad! She wasn’t talking about President Bush and Iraq at all. This was about Nancy Pelosi and her failed attempt at getting Jack Murtha elected House Majority Leader. Please accept my apologies – I’ll try to be more careful in the future. ;-)

Ya see, that’s what I love about hypocrisy. It’s so consistently inconsistent…

    Just so I’m clear — do you just equate the war in Iraq with the race for a Democratic leadership post?

    And they call us the moral relativists.

    No, not at all. I’m talking about politics here, not policy.

    When Bush makes a decision that goes wrong, he’s either an incompetent fool or a sinister liar. When Pelosi does it, she’s showing “true leadership.”

    If it would make you feel better, search & replace “War in Iraq” with PATRIOT Act, or same-sex marriage, or stem-cell research, or reforming social security, or nominating Harriet Miers, or…or…or….

    By the way, did you ever notice that I tend to refer to myself as “me” and you tend to refer to yourself as “us?”

    Why is that?
