Hagelian Dialectics

I'm starting to think this Hagel-nomination business could be pretty important: read Scott McConnell as to why.

Seriously, when mentioning that one is an American, not an Israeli, senator supposedly disqualifies one from higher office, I think it is time to push back.

  1. After the election I saw someone on twitter write that "The election results aren't just bad for America, they are bad for ISRAEL!" Which was an odd thing for an American to say, I thought.

    1. Why is that an odd thing for an American to say? I've heard people decry an election result they don't like as bad for the Palestinians.

      I think the election of FDR in 1940 was a good thing for America. It was also good for Britain and France. And many Americans expressed that opinion at the time.

    3. Well, sure, and Hagel has retracted those remarks, so that's that, and we have no need for pushback anymore, right?

      Unless, of course, you think ever having said anything you deem incorrect forever disqualifies said speaker from all future office?

    4. Sincere repentance is always good. It's not usually associated with last minute maneuvering in confirmation hearings.

    5. Yeah, Ken, like you actually think Hagel only abandoned that position five minutes ago!

  3. Exactly as much as I believe America is dominated by Netanyahuites
