Dispatches from the Creation Wars

Bill Kristol, who seems these days to have found a way to be both wrong and hypocritical simultaneously on every single issue he speaks on, got on Fox News recently and criticized the Obama administration for its “lack of respect for the rule of law” when it comes to immigration.

Look, if you’re a Republican who supported Bush’s attempts to shred the constitution and and now opposes any attempts to bring Bush administration officials to justice for torture and warrantless wiretaps, you have forever surrendered your right to use the phrase “rule of law” without having people point and laugh at you. The same goes for daring to claim that you’re a fan of the constitution.

I mean, he’s right, Obama does in fact ignore the rule of law in many situations. But I don’t want to hear that from Republicans, for crying out loud. I can say it; you can’t.
