Hank Fox at UTI wrote to Bruce Fein of the conservative pro-freedom website American Freedom Agenda (previously mentioned here). It’s one of the snarkier responses I’ve seen to conservatives who suddenly discover a conscience now that the clock is finally running out on Bushism:
I read your site, and it all sounds good, except for this one teeny thing: Conservatives were the ones who GOT us here.
Collectively, you clowns helped elect Bush and Cheney, you empowered (and continue to empower) venomous freaks like Rush Limbaugh and Bill O'Reilly and Ann Coulter, you demonized every person who even thought about speaking out against the war or the president, you sneered at straw-man "liberals," and you sat back and let America and its freedoms go to hell.
Where was your voice when Bush and Congress were runaway horses with nothing but naked power in mind? Why weren’t you working to stop them 6 years ago? What are you doing NOW to stop them? Nothing, most likely.
