Bush's lowest moment in office

Was it the "Mission Accomplished" moment?

Was it when he challenged terrorists to attack American soldiers?

Was it when he misled the United States into a protracted war?

Nope. According to Daniel Pipes, this is the worst thing Bush has done in office.

Update: Wow. James Wolcott points out that Daniel Pipes is the last guy who should be tossing around that "draft dodger" epithet. I hadn't even thought to check.

You can see how ridiculous are people like pimple-on-the-ass-of-the-world Daniel Pipes because even after all these years, when the "chickenhawk" moniker has been fully vetted and the utter hypocrisy of that point of view has been revealed to the world, he still isn't clear on the concept.

And Ali went to fucking jail for his principles, for God's sake!

These people should all be beaten repeatedly with a roque mallet, to paraphrase Stephen King.

Thanks to them, it's possible that I would vote for Josef Stalin in a free and fair election. I would be sorely tempted. He'd simply have to promise he'd kill a few more of *them* than he killed of us and I'd probably be handing out buttons and arranging meet-and-greets. Okay, he'd also have to pledge to do away with reality TV. I just think he'd be the kind of dictator you could have a shot of vodka with.

You know what todays con, and especially neocon is like? EXACTLY like the little demonic gnomes in the 1973 made-for-TV movie "Don't be Afraid of the Dark." There are good conservatives still, but they're called "liberals." The ones actually still called conservatives are nutbars and without any exceptions.

Daniel Pipes is on such thin ice - basically, and straightforwardly, playing the old anti-Semite game, but with a different set of Semites. If he wants to start searching people's religious scriptures for dirt, does he honestly imagine Judaism doesn't have skeletons in its closet? Start with the Hatanya*, I'd say, and move on from there to more detailed study of the Talmud, and you won't find any grounds for pretending one faith is on the moral high ground compared to the other.

*Admittedly, a minority obsession, thank God. But so is Wahabism and so is Islamism. That's the point Pipes wants to sweep under the rug with his Father Coughlin imitation.
