Sauce for the Goose

Picking up on Andrew Sullivan's dialogue on the stimulus package:

Matt Welch tangles with Larison, a Kossack, and me:

'Obama is skillfully turning the meaning of the word "bipartisan" into "the coalition that agrees with my magnanimous self."'

Once again I cannot help but laugh at the RWNM's umbrage at the comparatively modest moves Obama makes to forward his agenda, conveniently forgetting God's Own Party's efforts to not merely silence but eradicate the opposition when it had the chance. Remember "you're either with us, or against us," "soft on terrorism," "enabling the terrorists," and all the cracks about "real Americans" they spouted over the last eight years? Funny how when the GOP does it it's good and just and righteous, but when Democrats do anything remotely resembling it that's despicable. Never mind the argument centres around efforts to resurrect a moribund economy; an economy the Republicans torpedoed so regularly that the Musashi got the kid glove treatment by comparison.

It's good to see Sullivan is amused/outraged as I am at this.
