Remember when Andrew Sullivan laced into Bill Kristol for having “utter contempt of the rule of law” because Kristol thought Ft. Hood terrorist Nidal Malik Hasan will be found guilty, and that he should face the death penalty?
“Let us be clear: this is a fascist statement,” wrote Sullivan.
Funny that Sullivan to my knowledge never accused Barack Obama of making a fascist statement and having utter contempt of the rule of law when Obama essentially said the same thing. Obama said of Hasan, “I don’t think it will be offensive when he’s convicted and when the death penalty is applied to him.” (He later claimed he meant “if” not “when.” But believe me – Obama meant “when” at the time he said it.)
Let us be clear: Sullivan owes Kristol an apology.
