According to Who?

Nathan Moore notes that A.C. Kleinheider at WKRN's Volunteer Voters has in recent days linked to and excerpted from two anarchists, including one who argued that every U.S. soldier who died for his country in the history of the country represented a "colossal waste." Moore is right in stating that the lack of further comment on these excerpts implies tacit approval.

This continues a disturbing trend by Kleinheider of making use of sources from the lunatic fringe, either without comment or with favorable comment. In addition to anarchists, Kleinheider has made use of anti-Semites and Nazi war criminals.

The charitable view is that Kleinheider's pathological hatred of all things Bush impairs his judgment in choosing allies. The less charitable view is somewhat darker. Because he appears to be a reasonably nice guy, we will choose to take the charitable view unless further evidence requires otherwise. Nonetheless, it can be wished that he would be more careful.

If you think that Goering quote was an endorsement of Goering, you have all the reading comprehension of a clam.

And, of course, there's nothing even remotely anti-Semitic in the other link. I know that some of the dimmer bulbs in the blogosphere have tried to argue that the fellow questioning Rumsfeld is an anti-Semite, on the very dubious grounds that he's a critic of Israel. The clams might buy that.

Thanks for the comment and the elevation in status. According to TTLB's ecosystem (see on the right), I am only an insignificant microbe.
