Pat Robertson reminds Glenn Reynolds of the true meaning of “idiotarian.” [*]
Naturally, the President of the United States hasn’t had a word to say on the subject of a suggested terrorist action directed at an agency of the United States government. Maybe the discussion of “loyalty down” as an attribute of leadership came at one of the National Guard sessions he didn’t bother to show up for.
And the civility-mongers who keep telling Democrats not to be rude to that nice Mr. Bush are also curiously silent about an expression for which “uncivil” would be an unduly kind evaluation. So are the people who made such a huge fuss about Paul Wellstone’s memorial service.
It will be interesting to see whether anyone in the Republican Party tells Mr. Robertson that his help isn’t needed in the next election.
I’m not holding my breath.
