MOORE AWARD NOMINEE

“Gary Kamiya writes, ‘In a just world, Bush, Wolfowitz, Rumsfeld, Cheney, Rice, Feith and their underlings would be standing before a Senate committee investigating their catastrophic failures, and Packer’s book would be Exhibit A.’ No. In a just world, these people would be taken out and shot.” – Jane Smiley, far-left author. What I find revealing about this remark is how it exposes what Orwell saw in the fanatical part of the left. Notice that, for Smiley, there is no concern for, say, Bush, Wolfowitz et al, being given a fair trial in a “just world.” Her leftwing vision of justice is that they should “be taken out and shot.” No wonder she wanted to keep Saddam in power. The two think uncannily alike.

(The Moore Award, if you’re a new reader, is for particularly moronic, extremist or deliberately fallacious examples of left-wing rhetoric. You know who it’s named after.)
