Shorter Glenn Reynolds: Ah, doesn’t everybody long for the days when George W. Bush assembled a Potemkin coalition to lie the country into an insanely wasteful, destructive, and irrational war against a country that posed no threat to the United States?
Ol’ “More Rubble Less Trouble” might be at least be showing a little more skepticism about stupid (albeit on a much smaller scale) military adventurism with a Democrat in the White House, but not everything has changed; a brief perusal of recent posts confirms that at least he’s one of the creepiest, most self-satisfied misogynists on the known Internets. He has a “hot or not” immigration proposal, nyuk nyuk nyuk. No “tattooed hipster chicks” or — ew — Lena Dunhams, please. And, remember, if women don’t want to be assaulted they have the responsibility not to provoke men by acting in unspecified slutty ways. Like…Sanda Fluke. (How testifying before Congress that the health insurance you’re forced to pay for should cover stuff relevant to your health care makes Fluke immodest is…not obvious, but if you hate the idea of sexually autonomous women as much as Reynolds does I’m sure it all makes sense. Cf. also Howie Kurtz.)
