I will incline mine ear to the parable, and shew my dark speech upon the harpfrom Psalm 49
"I will smite the Muslims, I will kill the Russians"I'm seeing this from a certain brand of conservative too: McCain is guilty of acts he has yet to commit."I was held against my will, except when I decided to stay, I told nothing, I told nothing, I told everything"This is especially despicable. He stayed because of his obligation under the military code of conduct. It was a truly heroic decision. The second part mocks his breaking under torture, delivered by people who have never suffered it themselves, and who stoop to this simply because they don't like his politics.
Yes, Bill, I did find Mr Rockwell's paragraph a bit, shall we say, smarmy. And that's a problem with libertarians generally. They're all clever folks, as they'd be the first to tell you, but they're ideologues, and a certain unattractiveness creeps into the personality. Any sympathy I have with libertarians (I voted for Harry Browne in the '96 general election) is usually squelched by this sort of thing.The "hail me" part -- which Mr Rockwell decided to leave in English instead of putting it into German -- is another part that got to me because, as I suggest, there's more of that kind of stuff coming from B.O. than from J.McC.
