The current Republican love for Russia -- and the subsequent knee-jerk denunciations by not only Democrats, but actual liberals, of the thugocracy now running Russia.
For example, there's this blog post by Pat Buchanan that I was steered to via Twitter by no less than Justin Raimondo* of Antiwar.com.
Forget death and taxes, there seem to be only two things -- OK, to go Monty Python here, three things -- to be sure of:
1) The ever-increasing concentration of wealth in the hands of an ever-decreasing few -- as predicted by Mr. Karl Marx.
3) The use of war as the preferred tool to achieve No. 1.
2) And the lust for power that trumps (yes, pun intended) all claims -- even those made in sincerity at the time -- to not only principle and morality, but any sense of logical consistency.
* This is no criticism of Mr. Raimondo or Antiwar.com. He's an excellent writer and his website is a daily must-read.
