Jonah Goldberg, Apologist for Pedophiles, Terrorists and Kidnappers

I'm serious.

The Doughy Pantload defends the illegal strip search of 10-year-olds by defending a mass-murdering pedophile and kidnappers:

Lastly, I keep getting charged with supporting government power so long as it's my guy in office. But George Bush has nothing to do with the issue of warranted searches of drug dealers (or their children) and anybody who read my column when Bill Clinton was in office will find that I'm perfectly consistent on these sorts of issues. But, speaking of Bill Clinton, it would be nice to know how many of these holier than thouers were upset -- even remotely -- by Janet Reno's assault on the Branch Davidians or the seizure of Elian Gonzales.

Let's review the facts: The Branch Davidians brutally murdered four federal agents executing a lawful search warrant of the compound of a pedophile cult leader/armed terrorist before Janet Reno became Attorney General. After Reno became A.G., the Branch Davidians set fire to their own compound, murdering their own children and killing themselves (the latter being no loss whatsoever).

Janet Reno's lawful rescue of Elian Gonzales from those who were holding him illegally -- that's kidnapping -- involved neither a search nor a seizure of Gonzales.

No assault. No seizure.

Keep digging, Pantload. You're about to reach the depths of your mother's racist bulletin board.

Bonus correction of Stanley Kurtz: We didn't "los[e] 80,000 soldiers in the Battle of the Bulge." There were an estimated 76,000 to 80,000 casualties, but only 10,000 to 19,000 deaths.

Update (1/16): Oops. It looks like I stole this from TBogg.
