The View From the Right

Earlier Pat posted about David Corn and his take on the truthers, from the other side of the political spectrum we have Jonah Goldberg and Charles Krauthammer. Poor guys, getting it from both sides.

My favorite quote, from Mr. Krauthammer:

Unlike the other stuff (see above), this is no trivial matter. It’s beyond radicalism, beyond partisanship. It takes us into the realm of political psychosis, a malignant paranoia that, unlike the Marxist posturing, is not amusing. It’s dangerous. In America, movements and parties are required to police their extremes. Bill Buckley did that with Birchers. Liberals need to do that with “truthers.”

You can no more have a truther in the White House than you can have a Holocaust denier — a person who creates a hallucinatory alternative reality in the service of a fathomless malice.
