A Bill of Attainder on Steyn?

Live Earth is the gift that just keeps on giving. It seems that RFK Jr has joined the John Birch Society:

“Get rid of all these rotten politicians that we have in Washington, who are nothing more than corporate toadies,” said Robert F. Kennedy Jr., the environmentalist author, president of Waterkeeper Alliance and Robert F. Kennedy’s son, who grew hoarse from shouting. “This is treason. And we need to start treating them as traitors.”

The atmosphere: love it or leave it?

But hang on a second. Aren’t we regularly told that dissent is patriotic, indeed the very essence of patriotism? Yet in this case, it seems, dissent is treason. I expect Mark, myself and the Planet Gore crew will be shipped off to a refurbished Gitmo having been designated Enemy Disputants in the next few years. I hope they’re respectful of my copy of Al Gore’s Science Fiction.
