Why do Democrats (the McGovernite New Democratic Party, that is) so regularly beat up on our allies (see Hillary Clinton here getting tough with Israel), while turning on all their considerable charm towards the regimes that despise us the most (Ahmadinejad, Chavez, Castro)?
Could it be that their post-nationalist sense of America as a global sinner makes them suspicious of anyone that would take our side? Do they naturally empathize only with those who feel contempt for America?
Is this some bizarre version of the Marxist (Groucho) joke about not joining any club that would have us as a member? Is this what’s become of the party I have supported my entire life?
What a sad, sick thought. Even if I am right, I am sorry I thought it.
