I had the same thought as Tim when I read Joe Wilson’s latest op-ed. Certainly, I never called him a traitor. In fact, some NRO readers thought I was too easy on him because I said I didn’t believe he was evil – just an angry partisan and an opportunist.
But this has become a talking point among a certain breed of Democrats. On CNN’s American Morning earlier today, my sparring partner, the lovely and charming Victor Kamber, went on about the administration questioning the “patriotism” of its critics. Who has done that? What a cleverly deceptive tactic to claim your opponents are making charges against you that they have not made. I suppose it’s in the “When did you stop beating your wife?” mold.
