Another Republican candidate echoes the John McCain / Max Jackboot line on Libya
(Note: I originally attributed the statement to the reader, not to Will. I am sorry for the error.)
Timothy Pawlenty, a more ardent than discerning admirer of John McCain, is suddenly echoing McCain’s ahistorical and nonsensical canard that skepticism about nation-building in Afghanistan and opposition to the intervention in Libya’s civil war constitute isolationism. “America,” Pawlenty says, astonishingly, “already has one political party devoted to decline, retrenchment and withdrawal. It does not need a second one.” The Democratic Party supporting a Democratic president’s plunge into Libya is devoted to “withdrawal”? If only.
