My Word!

Peggy Noonan is shocked, shocked, I say, by the lack of "grace" in America, as embodied by the fact that liberals, as proven by all of four incidents, has much less tolerance for dissenting opinions than the right.

First of all, Peggy, the president and Congress have officially thrown habeas corpus in the toilet, and hardly anyone is saying anything about that, so fuck your little tea party concept of grace in the ass.

Second of all, according to Peggy Noonan, the student protests over the Minutemen at Columbia, Streisand cursing out an audience member, some anonymous blog commenters feeling that CBS had sullied itself by airing Brian Rohrbough's commentary, and Rosie O'Donnell arguing with Elizabeth Hasselback on The View all indicate an universal desire on the left not to capitulate to views on the right. Yes, because we all know that the right is so tolerant of outside views.

I mean, Sean Hannity never wrote a book with a subtitle that directly compares liberalism and terrorism. Michelle Malkin never called her opponents unhinged. Ann Coulter never said that Jesus himself would be against liberals, and never tried to turn her supporters on hecklers. Grover Norquist never compared a Democratic minority in the House and Senate to neutered farm animals as if it was a good thing. We all know Michael Reagen never suggested that Howard Dean be hung for treason. And we all know that Donald Rumsfeld hasn't compared people who want to set a timetable for departure from Iraq to Nazi appeasers.

Glenn Greenwald has much, much more. But next time Ms. Noonan clutches her pearls about the ungraceful stifling of dissent, she might want to look at her side of the fence first.
