I read that Chait thing too and I thought: "Huh? What the hell is your damage?" Sure, when I was in my twenties I'd roll my eyes whenever Reagan came on and did his Grandpa act (as I called it) -- because, ya know, o0ne has to be 'ironic' and all. But then I grew up. For the most part, these people don't even have the excuse of being twenty-somethings. Most of them are my age if not older. Political drama-queens, I call them.
I stand by my criticism of Clinton and have no problem with the Democrats attacking Bush. I think Clinton was the worst President in US history. They think Bush is evil. I think Clinton belongs in jail. Teddy Kennedy thinks Bush belongs in Hell. I do not expect fairness or impartiality from the left. I expect the attacks will be spirited and enthusiastic.
There is only one difference between the current critics and myself. I was telling the truth.
