Peter "PNAC's Bitch" Beinart (h/t the late Steve Gilliard) is a young man with many ideas.
Many terrible ideas.
And, as Bill Moyers noted in "Buying the War" back in 2007, Mr. Beinart is also one of that constellation of special, connected people who got the most important public position of their lives enthusiastically, profitably and spectacularly wrong, and yet still somehow never miss a meal.
...Somehow, Peter Beinart also still considers himself a "Liberal", which. hey, who am I to judge how people want to self-identify? If Mr. Beinart wants to be called a "liberal" or Ron Fournier wants to be called a "journalist" instead of a "skeezy Both Siderist hobgoblin" or Dick Cheney would prefer to be considered a "human" and not a "soul-dead, life-destroying ghoul", well for the time being it's still a free country.
ERIC BOEHLERT: And it's astonishing to see them still on TV invited on as experts in the region.
BILL MOYERS: IT'S TRUE, SO MANY OF THE ADVOCATES AND APOLOGISTS FOR THE WAR ARE STILL FLOURISHING IN THE MEDIA...
BILL KRISTOL AND PETER BEINART, FOR EXAMPLE, ARE NOW REGULAR CONTRIBUTORS TO TIME MAGAZINE, WHICH HAS BEEN LAYING OFF DOZENS OF REPORTERS.
BILL MOYERS: And remember this brilliant line?
PRESIDENT BUSH: We cannot wait for the final proof: the smoking gun that could come in the form of a mushroom cloud.
BILL MOYERS: THE MAN WHO CAME UP WITH IT WAS MICHAEL GERSON. PRESIDENT BUSH'S TOP SPEECHWRITER. HE HAS LEFT THE WHITE HOUSE AND HAS BEEN HIRED BY THE WASHINGTON POST AS A COLUMNIST.
So the "liberal" Peter Beinart has another terrible idea.
Wanna hear it?
Sure you do.
You know that mob of racist meatbags who have been working really hard to screw up our country for the last 40 years? The ones who have built an electoral juggernaut and a media empire out of calling people like you dirty, stinking, America-hating, terrorist-loving commie traitors every day of your adult life.
Well Mr. Beinart thinks it would be a real swell idea for us Liberals drop trou, bend over and offer the shallow, bigoted, turd-clotted end of the America political gene pool an electoral pityfuck for, y'know...the good of the country.
Why Liberals Should Vote for Marco RubioSo, three things.
Democrats must do everything they can to prevent Donald Trump’s nomination—like supporting the one man with a chance to beat him.
First, this really is just the worst idea I have heard in a very long time.
Second, Mr. Beinart got paid for it.
Third, when Mr. Beinart repudiates his terrible idea at some point in the near future, he will be paid for that too,
Because there is still a club.
And you are still not in it.
