Kevin Williamson, in the course of spanking Yahoo News for not looking up National Review’s long-standing opinion on pot*, finishes up with a nice pit of Parthian snark:
Likewise, there are those who apparently are surprised that in the case of homosexuals vs. Russians who wish to put them into ovens, Glenn Beck has taken the side of the homosexuals. If that is surprising to you, you really need to get out more.
They need to, but they won’t. More accurately, they don’t dare. Any kind of dispassionate look at the country and its various political subdivisions will quickly make one realize that there is at least a small inverse correlation between the fiscal/social health of any given municipality and how often they listen to advice from liberals. An obsessive sense of their own moral superiority is more or less all the Left has, um, left. Take that away and they’re absolutely bereft.
Via Instapundit, who sums up my observation nicely: “And the demonization is the point.”
*Executive summary: “Keeping it illegal is not worth it, in money, time, and people’s lives.” I know that many people will argue with the National Review with that, but that’s actually not the point. The point is that this is a hardly a new position from NR.
