Talking to myself about foreign policy, US politics, technology, &c.

Politics Quote of the Day

Kevin Drum made me snort my coffee through my nose with the best quote I’ve seen this month. He’s talking about the anti-Bogeyman-of-the-moment current in Republican foreign policymaking (Mahmoud is the anti-Christ!) but it applies to right-wing politics in general.

When people who believe stuff like that are dressed in rags and yelling at passersby from street corners, we call them crackpots. When they dress in suits and, say, edit the Weekly Standard, we call them foreign policy analysts. Weird, huh?
