Hanoi, February, 2010

Now that's certainly change. I'm confident that any posters in Hanoi featuring Mr. Bush were quite different. The point is not "See? See! Obama's a Communist!" Instead, the point is this: what has the President of the United States done, or said, or otherwise communicated to the world, that would suggest to someone in Hanoi that his iconic image should be posted at all, let alone just above that of the psychopathic murderer Che Guevara? Just a question. From Samizdata.

Meanwhile, back here at the ranch: remember when dissent and opposition to the President were the highest form of patriotism? That wasn't so long ago. Things sure have changed. According to John Brennan, Assistant to the President and Deputy National Security Advisor for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism, "Politically motivated criticism and unfounded fear-mongering only serve the goals of al-Qaeda." Wow. It sounds as if Mr. Brennan, speaking for the administration, now believes that dissenters, like your humble and obedient servant, are giving aid and comfort to the enemies of the United States. Hmmmm. "Giving aid and comfort to the enemy." We think we've heard that phrase before.
