There is a school of thought that says, Do not delight in reminding your extremist ideological opponents that they are being betrayed by their own. The underlying rationale is that doing so help make the people doing the betrayal appear to be ‘moderate,’ even when they’re really not. Given that said extremist ideologues will also still vote for their betrayers in the future, the argument is that pragmatically there’s not enough of an upside to mocking them for it. I respect the reasoning behind of this school of thought.
It’s just that sometimes I don’t give a tinker’s dam. Via AoSHQ, not a Photoshop or parody. This is real:
And the neocons laugh. Oh, how we laugh.
