Michael J. Totten, this morning, as if this is a shock to his system;

Juan Cole would rather align himself with anti-American Iraqis like the blogger Riverbend. Okay, whatever. But I have no idea why he expects conservatives and centrists to do any such thing. Most people in this world don’t reflexively side with those who hate them. One reason he is in the political wilderness and I’m not is because he does and I don’t.

But self-hatred seems to be a basic tenant of the un-American left, Michael. Haven’t you caught on, yet?
