The Corner

Frum, Rush, Rudy

A friend e-mails a point I surprisingly haven’t seen made:

David Frum enthusiastically supported Rudy Giuliani for president.  How does Rudy match up with Barack Obama’s manifest virtues cited by Frum?  Frum praises Obama as “soft-spoken and conciliatory, never angry” and notes that he is an “apparently devoted husband and father” who epitomizes the ideal of “responsibility.”  Rush Limbaugh is faulted for being “aggressive, bombastic, cutting and sarcastic” and for his “tangled marital history.”  Frum has the gall to criticize a radio host for allegedly failing to measure up to Obama having backed for president a thrice-married, angry and aggressive adulterer who also (gasp) smokes cigars?
