the new mccarthyism continues - could you be an "excuse maker"?

condolleeza rice now joins
thomas friedman and bill o'reilly in practicing the new mcarthyism (yes! we coined that term!), as we can see from a video clip on crooks and liars. this new thought suppression program casts a broader net than its 1950's counterpart. you don't need to be a liberal to be a target. you only need to raise the self-evident fact that the war in iraq has increased the world's supply of terrorists, or wonder what else might be motivating terrorist attacks, and you are an "excuse maker" who is not much better than a terrorist yourself. it's ok to ask why serial killers kill, as larry king does from time to time, but it's treason to ask the same about terrorists.
