Now St. Andrew Accuses NRO of "Schoolgirl Cliquishness"

His post, slightly edited and ammended to make his juvenile hysteria more coherent:

Ramesh "Party of Death" Ponnuru says he opposes torture. He did and said virtually nothing for the four years it has been American policy, except cover his ass with a couple of statements, designed not to offend those whose patronage he seeks. His record of near-silence speaks for itself, torture torture Abu Ghraib. No amount of flim-flammery can now rogue nation. As for whether it is "hysterical" to relate the Bush administration's policy to allow torture and abuse of military prisoners to Abu Ghraib and the dozens of other sites in Iraq and Afghanistan where torture has occurred, torture torture waterboarding Haditha "Hadji Girl" torture were also "hysterical". He must also believe that the torture torture Abu Ghraim torture torture torture Madonna tickets, first row, P-town, beagles are cute.

So on my side: the government reports and the Supreme Court. On Ponnuru's side, the usual torture torture FMA betrayal of true conservative principles, and by the way the Pope is a Nazi. Also notice Ponnuru's "argument" about what conservatism is. For him, it suffices to say that torture torture water-boarding poor Khalid Sheik Mohammad I cry myself to bed everynight thinking about the perserverence of this new Gandhi. Is conservatism now a social clique? Or is it a philosophy worth debating and arguing over, as I try to do in my next book? For Ponnuru, conservatism is a club. For me, it's a set of torture "conservativism, c'est moi." If Ponnuru wants to say I am not a serious conservative, then let him make the case. The rest is schoolgirl cliquishness.

"Schoolgril cliquishness." "Hysteria." Incivility.

Again, projection (yawn) ain't just a river in Egypt.

A little repost. I like this old take-down of St. Andrew of the Sacred Heart-Ache. Andrew Sullivan: "I'm not easy to offend."

Oh really?

St. Andrew Flashback: He actually speculated that the War on Terror was all just a concoction to stave off gay marriage.

I shit you not:

But in my darker moments, I wonder whether the war wasn't a cover to persuade good, open-minded folk like Glenn to enable the theocratic impulses of the Republican base. Of course, Glenn can wait and see. Gay couples who have had basic rights taken away from them since November, might feel more aggrieved.

He never shuts up about "Glenn." It's like he has a crush on him, as he once seemed to have on Bush.

People tend to bad-mouth those they once had crushes on. "After the love is gone," a philosopher once said, "what used to be right is wrong."
