"That's how the gun and the knife is"

I've posted a couple of comments to Nathan Newman's second post on the implications of current Israeli policy.

Matthew Yglesias annoys me. Arrogant thoughtfulness is not the same as thoughtful arrogance, and unlike the latter, whatever the indulgences associated with it, has no moral or philosophical validity anywhere outside the beltway. Even there it will only get you as far as an advisory position. Real politicians know the value of their own hypocrisy. It's their assistants who end up believing their own lies.
