Bush's Sheep Mourns Caligula's Horse, Recalls The Martyrdom Of Pilate
Li'l Hugh Hewitt, eyes flush and balls ascended over the Miers fiasco, recalls another of the modern Republican party's Christ-figures:
"I brought myself down. I gave them a sword and they stuck it in and they twisted it with relish."That was Richard Nixon speaking to David Frost. Hewitt thinks there's a lesson here, and incredibly, one that supports his position.
Did Nixon give them a sword(there was always a "them" with Nixon, wasn't there) by illegally interfering in the wartime diplomacy of 1968 in order to discredit the Humphrey campaign, or by approving Kissinger's genocidal designs on southeast Asia, or merely by orchestrating a criminal conspiracy against branches of the US government in order to save his own sorry ass?
WHINY UPDATE: Is there any chance, any, that Posner gets the SCOTUS seat?
PAPER OF RECORD UPDATE: Li'l Hugh gets op-ed space in the New York Times. Um, impeach Sulzberger(!)?
