Weapons of mass altercation…

Howard Kurtz notices that the patriotism litmus test is getting more difficult to pass. Conservatives are now accusing other conservatives of hating America in regard to their opinions about the war.

UPDATE (12:35 p.m.): The Daily Howler has much to say about this.

UPDATE (25 March 6:15 p.m.): I broke two of my own rules: 1) Always check out the source documents, and 2) Always make sure you understand the nomenclature. I pointed out this item because I think Frum’s charging other conservatives with hating America an extreme red herring and ad hominem attack. I still believe that. But, I failed to read his original column to fully understand the context, and I posted before I had an adaquate understanding of the “paleo” prefix. By breaking these two rules, I seriously damaged any chance I had to make a cogent comment.
