"Silly Me"

I used to hate George W. Bush but then I read this Peter Berkowitz column and calmed down: “And lord knows the Bush administration has blundered in its handling of legal issues that have arisen in the war on terror. But from the common progressive denunciations you would never know that the Bush administration has rejected torture as illegal.” See, the Bush administration has rejected torture as illegal so here I’ve been wasting my time being upset that the administration has redefined various forms of torture as “not torture” and therefore legal. Oy.

This is via Brendan Nyhan. I used to have Berkowitz in my “often thought-provoking, though rarely convincing” file but this is really laughable stuff.
