Selective demagoguery update

· Miscellany, Weblog Concepts

I see lots of kvetching over at Instapundit today about details of the looting, convoluted meta-arguments about WMD, and the strange idea that Tim Robbins and Michael Moore have claimed that they’ve been repressed “by the system” while straw-liberals the world around have ignored Castro’s crimes. (Has anyone compared Hollywood union techs and baseball hagiography executives with the Cuban dictator? Probably the same people who said “Saddam is not such a bad guy” – where are they?).

But strangely Glenn has had no comments (yet) about the terribly surprising rise of Iraqi Shi’ite powerbrokers in the south. Whodathunkit?

I’ve noticed that democracy is often mistaken for majority rule. We need to be reading Fareed Zakaria.
