If it was good enough for Joey it's good enough for Georgie

Eric Alterman catches William Kristol defending Bush with the same words his daddy used to defend McCarthy. Hilarious!

In this morning’s Washington Post, Kristol writes, “But the American people, whatever their doubts about aspects of Bush’s foreign policy, know that Bush is serious about fighting terrorists and terrorist states that mean America harm. About Bush’s Democratic critics, they know no such thing.” In the journal Commentary, during the McCarthy era, Irving Kristol wrote, “For there is one thing that the American people know about Senator McCarthy; he, like them, is unequivocally anti-Communist. About the spokesman for American liberalism, they feel they know no such thing.”

Go see what Eric, astutely, says it means.
