Another Sunday and another great moment in liberal logic. On ABC’s This Week, the subject turned to the chaos currently engulfing Iraq, and liberal thought leader Katrina vanden Heuvel was paired up with Bill Kristol. After making her case against a new US ground war in Iraq, vanden Heuvel decided to take a shot across the bow at Bill. Andrew Johnson has the details.
“I have to say — sitting next to Bill Kristol, man, I mean — the architects of catastrophe that have cost this country trillions of dollars, thousands of lives, there should be accountability,” she said on This Week. “We don’t need armchair warriors — if you feel so strongly, you should, with all due respect, enlist in the Iraqi army.”
“That’s a very cute line, Katrina,” he quipped back.
There’s a difference between wanting to start another war and feeling strongly about the decaying situation in Iraq. But the smarmy looks that vanden Heuvel provides tell you all you need to know.
