"Free" Rhetoric, and Worth It

There's been a lot of discussion since Inaugural Day about the vast and growing gap between George W. Bush's rhetoric about America's relentless commitment to the spread of freedom and democracy, and his own administration's rather different policies. My colleague The Moose succinctly described the Inaugural Address as "disconnected to reality."

But Ryan Lizza of The New Republic has offered the best, so far, full documentation of this "disconnectedness" in Bush's foreign and domestic policies. He names all the names of the freedom-hating, undemocratic regimes the administration has continued to snuggle up to, and cites all the sites of the administration's domestic disrespect for the Gersonian values trumpeted on Thursday.
