I Mean Really....

...is there any need for leftists to use such vicious sarcasm as this?

Critics of the United States and its role in the world prefer to argue their point of view by focusing on specific instances of American bullying or brutality, recounting their favorite horror stories from Indonesia or Nicaragua, Vietnam or Chile, the Philippines or Iraq - or any of two dozen other places around the globe where American intervention or involvement imperfectly exemplified the nation's self-professed high ideals.

Oh no, wait. That's conservative film critic Michael Medved, wearing a thoughtful expression.

And do you know why some of us tell those stories, Michael? Because we really like them. They are our favorites.
