I'm cheating on you with another blog

After reading about this here, I went ahead and wrote this for the Radar wire.

A further thought after the jump, but don't read it until you've read the Radar post.

I thought it was especially obnoxious that JG wrote the piece I quoted at length at least four months after he'd started working on the book. It's not like he changed his mind, he knew the whole time he wrote all that "I'd defend Al Gore too" crap that it was a lie.

I half suspect that all the attacks on liberals for using the fascist meme was really just a ploy to bully us into unilateral disarmament (which we love so much) so that they could have the weapon all to themselves.

Proposing a morotorium on likening Bush to Hitler, is a slick way of saying: "I'd like to see your right to freedom of speech taken away." I.E., a kinder, gentler fascism.
Instead, why don't we have an opinion tax, for people to pay when they get things wrong. This would make for a better informed public. And I can think of just a few people, whose ignornace alone, could fund universal healthcare.

Any remaining sliver of respect or general goodwill I had toward Jonah has been completely obliterated. That's just shameful.

Or is it shameless? I always get those confused.

Tell me it's not too late to cite Godwin's Law.

I suggest a corollary to Godwin's Law: any discussion of Hitler will eventually devolve into criticism of liberals.
