An Idea for Liberals

The only way Ahmadinejad could better epitomize everything you hate is if he were fervently pro-America and a woman. Instead of imagining Bush doing every evil thing you can think of, you can try imagining Ahmadinejad doing the same — except he might actually be doing them. Of course, I’m not saying you should hate him as much as you hated Bush — I don’t think that’s possible — but you could maybe spare a little anger for him.

Okay, liberals, I have a radical idea I want to run by you: the Iranian government is bad and worthy of some of your outrage.

Yeah, I know, it sounds crazy. Iran is not a beauty queen speaking out against gay marriage, or Sarah Palin. Why in the world would you want to direct any scorn towards a brutal theocracy seeking nuclear weapons? It’s not obvious, but let me explain.

Also, now that millions of Iranians are protesting, they are being beaten and shot. Remember how Bush was suppressing all dissent, and we knew about that because people were constantly on TV talking about how Bush was suppressing their dissent? Now, I don’t know the details of what people imagined Bush was doing, but I’m going to go out on a limb and say that people being beaten and shot has to be at least nearly as bad as the stuff you convinced yourself Bush did. Maybe that’s a suppression of speech, and you could go on TV and denounce it.
