Suddenly, I have this overwhelming urge to be objective.

"OHMIGOD OHMIGOD OHMIGOD Saddam has WMDs and we have to invade and OHMIGOD the Iranians are going to make the Jews wear badges and OHMIGOD the evil terrorists walk among us and we're all gonna die and ... hey, have you read that the CPC may have taken millions of dollars in illegal political donations and this is an interesting story but I think we should wait until all the facts are in and not jump to conclusions because I don't see any immediate reason to take this story seriously but it might be worth following, strictly speaking from an objective point of view to see how it plays out and OHMIGOD OHMIGOD OHMIGOD Saddam was breeding a race of killer lizards that could shoot laser beams out of their eyeballs OHMIGOD ..."

Doesn't that double standard just drive you nuts? My favorite recently was the furor about the NYT "leaking" information about planned troop reductions in Iraq, though that information was clearly already in the public record. Hello? Why is "already public" good enough for Scooter Libby (in whose case it wasn't even true) but not for the NYT? Why is "moral relativism" something to be condemned until the wingnuts need to engage in some of it themselves? They just heap one kind of hypocrisy on top of another, don't they? It's like a game to see how outrageous they can be before even their friends turn on them.

Being conservative basically means being a hypocrite. I've never met any in my entire life who don't, at heart, believe that the world should work according to standards they themselves can't meet.

Also, they're dumb. Let's stop pretending that isn't an issue.

The laser-eyed lizard program was not true. Poor intel, again.

Ended up it was a Baghdad optometrist doing laser eye surgery.

I think he's still in limbo in Gitmo.

This has also allowed more troops to be taken off lizard stomping duty.
