Cheney Rules 

In his latest essay for Time, Charles Krauthammer cries foul on the Democrats.

"In an election year, it is too much to expect serious and complicated moral issues to be treated with seriousness and complexity. Nonetheless, the way Democrats have managed to caricature and debase the debate over embryonic stem-cell research stands in a class by itself."

Why Lines Must Be Drawn
By Charles Krauthammer

Hey, Charlie, go fuck yourself.

I'll be ready to take you seriously on the day that the dunghill you're perched on becomes a garden.

The most significant difference between Democrats and Republicans is that Republicans aren't interested in gardening.

Why is it that "in an election year, it is too much to expect serious and complicated moral issues to be treated with seriousness and complexity"? Do you suppose that it's just politics? Politics by whose rules? Who gets to "set the tone?"

Republicans are discovering the pitfalls of setting the wrong tone. And still they refuse to change it. Perhaps they don't realize that the onus to deescalate belongs to the aggressor. Wishful thinking of course...

You're just sore because Democrats are scoring points with the most sophisticated (yawn) Republican plays. And you're worried, because you're aware that the hollow ideology you defend and promote is not as resilient as liberalism.

Can Dick W. Cheney's neo-conservatism withstand a continuous, concerted, Republican-style ridiculing? I don't think it can, because the truth is that Dick W. Cheney's neo-conservatism is in fact ridiculous. Draw a line around that.

We can debate about embryonic stem-cell research another day. Perhaps I'll make a concession to your tortured argument, and apologize for being rude.
