Steyn Corrects

Summary:

      In The New York Sun.  He now has the Nazi death camp toll up to nine million, which, considering the millions murdered outside the camps, puts him in the right ballpark.

At length:

      And being Steyn, he sticks it to Durbin again, with the observation that the "atrocities" at Guanatanamo
bear the same relation to the gulags (15-30 million dead), the Nazi camps (nine million dead) and the killing fields of Cambodia (two million dead) as Mel Brooks‚ “Springtime For Hitler” does to the original
.
      The summation is brutal:
      You can’t claim (as Democrats do, incessantly) to “support our troops” and then dump them in the same category as the Nazis and the Khmer Rouge.  In the hermetically sealed echo chamber between the Dem leadership, the mainstream US media, Hollywood, Ivy League “intellectuals” and European sophisticates, the gulag cracks are utterly unexceptional.  But, for a political party that keeps losing elections because it has less and less appeal outside a few coastal enclaves, Durbin’s remarks are devastating.  The Democrats flopped in 2002 and 2004 because they were seen as incoherent on national security issues.  Explicitly branding themselves as the “terrorists’ rights” party is unlikely to improve their chances for 2006.

      I'll say.  In fact, I did.  But what's with the Sun's bird drawing?

THE HOUSE OF SAUD MUST BE DESTROYED -- AND WILL BE!
