View From a Height
Commentary from the Mile High City
Saturday, March 29, 2003
I happened to catch a little bit of former senator Gary Hart's, er, performance, on Hannity and Colmes, and it was one of the most dishonest appearances by a supposedly leading politician not named Clinton that I have ever seen. He attacked the notion of the war while, in the same sentence, saying that we need to come together and support the effort. Then, he attacked Hannity for impugning his patriotism by calling him a "liberal." Why was Gary upset? Was it that liberals are patriotic, or that he's not a liberal. When Hannity (somewhat ineffectively) pointed out that Hart is is a liberal, he went ballistic, pointing out that McGovern was a bomber pilot, and that the anti-war movement is supported by right-wing lunatics, too. For all the world it sounded like he was trying to deny his liberalism.
