Quote of the day – dumb guy trying to claim smart guy is evil edition

Via Ed Driscoll:

Stewart actually tried his best to take the clown nose off at first. Starting with Rumsfeld’s quote about the dangers of mixing power and certainty is a reasonable starting point for the liberal critique of Bush/Rumsfeld/Iraq (not saying I agree with it, just looking at it from the outside). The problem begins when Stewart thinks he can box with Rumsfeld…he can’t. Rumsfeld has been doing this longer than Stewart has been alive and Stewart isn’t in the top 1,000 of toughest people Rumsfeld’s dealt with.

As I’ve said before, the silly stories that liberals have made up about the Iraq war may sound really nice between them, but when they come up against the hard reality, they just don’t stand a chance.

In other words, a re-run of the John Yoo interview. Mind, in that instance Stewart didn’t even understand what the memos he hated were for….


  1. Do you even know what a liberal is? The way you use the term it’s as if you got your definition from Rush or Sean Hanity. Read Thomas Paine, “Common Sense” then read “Ishmael” by Daniel Quinn. Then maybe you will start to get an idea of what it means to be a liberal. Until then, I recommend you keep an open mind.

    1. I use liberal the same way most people do.

      Yes, there can be various meanings but in most cases, people understand that liberal = left.

    2. I’m also struck that you talk about “Rush or Sean Hanity” but the slightest glance at this blog shows that I’m in New Zealand and woudn’t be listening to those guys.

      Yet you’re trying to imply that *I’m* the stupid one somehow. Fail.
