Rich Lowry can do better than this

The National Review is a well-written, insightful and fair publication.

Rich Lowry's current article is none of those things. The things j. morgan said in his sleep when he was 4 are more intelligent. There's this:

"After the 2004 election, then-New Republic editor Peter Beinart wrote an influential article calling on liberal hawks basically to purge the antiwar zealots from the party. Instead, the anti-war zealots are conducting a purge of the liberal hawks."

I used to like to play the Protoss in Starcraft, because one of their units was an anti-war zealot. You'd get a group of those together and they were unstoppable. And this beautiful turn of phrase:

"[Ned] Lamont is a straight Deaniac, not just in his opposition to the war, but in his demographic profile: white, well-off and highly educated."

Yeah...white, educated, well-off people who oppose the war...I call them "straight Deaniacs" too...I think everyone does...anti-war zealots, they are, whose burning, all-consuming zeal to oppose war leads them to...change their minds about things...

This just goes to show that not all X's are Y's.

Yeah - what the heck do his "demographic" simularities to Dean have to do with his politics? I mean, I'm white, educated, and reasonably well off, and I couldn't be further from an anti-war zealot without joining the zurg.
